Discover Shockwave Therapy in Clapham

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, or (ESWT) is an 18-minute non-surgical procedure used to cure chronic Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, Shoulder Tendonitis, and other chronic muscular or tendon injuries.

Does Shockwave Therapy work?

Whilst it is recommended that patients receive a minimum of 3 shockwave treatments, the results can be amazing. On average, patients see a reduction in pain of 92% with only one treatment.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

During the shockwave treatment, you lie back comfortably with the area to be treated, resting on the machine on a soft, water-filled membrane. The technician uses an ultrasound scan to view and target the damaged location. During the treatment, you will hear repetitive clicking sounds.

Is Shockwave Therapy painful?

Shockwave therapy can cause some discomfort during the treatment, as it involves the application of pressure waves to the affected area. However, the level of pain experienced can vary depending on individual sensitivity and the specific condition being treated. Some patients may feel mild to moderate discomfort or a sensation similar to deep tissue massage. Your therapist will work with you to ensure your comfort during the therapy session.

Is shockwave therapy safe?

Shockwave therapy is generally safe when performed by trained professionals. Potential side effects are rare and temporary, such as skin redness or discomfort. Discuss your suitability for the treatment with a qualified healthcare provider.

What conditions can be treated with shockwave therapy?

Shock wave can effectively treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Injuries involving attachment points for tendons and ligaments in major joints such as the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, shoulder, elbow, and knee are common areas for shockwave treatment.

How many sessions of shockwave therapy are usually required?

For effective results, we recommend patients have a minimum of 3-5 sessions. The total amount will depend on the injury.

When should I consider Shockwave Therapy?

If you have had your condition for more than six months and have tried three conservative therapies with no results, do not wait. Continuously using degenerative tendon tissue can cause further damage. When the condition progresses to a rupture, ESWT is no longer an option, and you will have no treatment alternative but invasive surgery.

Shoulder Injuries

ESWT is suitable for treating Shoulder Tendonitis, chronic neck, and shoulder pain caused by overuse of the tendon and repetitive strain injury.

Leg Injuries

ESWT treats Hamstring Tendinopathy, caused by changes to the tendons attached to the pelvis often caused by repetitive activities such as running.

Shin Injuries

ESWT is suited to treating Shin Splints and Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome which is an injury of the tendons and muscles in the shin area.

Heel Injuries

Achilles Tendinopathy often occurs through running, football, and endurance activities such as skiing, HIIT and CrossFit. ESWT is a proven method for treating this delicate area.

Foot Injuries

ESWT is suitable for treating Plantar Fascia, an injury often caused by overuse and inflammation of the ligament that connects the heel to the toes.

Back & Pelvis Injuiries

Lower back pain treatment. ESWT gets to the source of chronic back pain, Lumbago and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome often caused by heavy lifting, desk-based jobs, and sports.

Knee Injuries

ESWT is suitable for treating Patellar Tendinopathy of the knee often caused by activities that bare weight on the knee, such as cycling and skiing.

Tennis Elbow

ESWT is suitable for treating Tennis Elbow, an injury that can occur through over use of the joint in activities such as tennis, squash, and CrossFit.
