Have you tried every other pain treatment?
Shock Wave Therapy can achieve superb results for patients experiencing persistent pain conditions affecting tendons and muscles including symptoms such as shin splints, tennis elbow, shoulder tendonitis, Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendonitis, Heel pain (plantar fasciitis, heel spur), scar tissue, facet joint inflammation in the back and muscular trigger points. The process involves applying compressed air to the affected area creating “shock waves”. Calcified tissue and scar tissue can be broken down enabling healthy tissue growth. Many patients find shock wave therapy enables them to get back to a normal active and healthy lifestyle.
How much does Shock Wave therapy cost?
The Shock Wave Therapy Machines themselves are expensive to purchase and maintain, meaning many shock wave clinics charge between £200-£400 per session. However, we feel that Shock Wave Therapy should be available to everyone due to it’s effectiveness as a pain treatment. Therefore we charge an affordable £85 per session. This represents superb value for money when you consider that a single Shock Wave session is estimated to have the same or greater effect as 6 – 8 sessions of deep friction massage!
Will Shock Wave Therapy hurt me?
Due to the nature of the treatment you may experience some discomfort during a Shock Wave Therapy session but the power of the shock waves can be adjusted to a level that is suits you. After treatment you could feel a mild discomfort but this usually disappears within 24 hours.
How many Shock Wave sessions do I need?
If you have suffered with any of the conditions above you will know how difficult they can be to treat, you will probably have already tried many sessions of manual therapy, pain killers, anti-inflammatories and even injections. However most patients who receive Shockwave Therapy experience improvements in their condition from just a single session with it typically taking between 3 and 6 sessions, one week apart, for maximum improvement.
