Shockwave Therapy (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy – ECSWT)
Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to be effective, recognised by top hospitals and used by professional sports people.
Highly effective treatment for patients with chronic tendon disorders.
It is a non-surgical treatment that works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon.
No medication is involved.
This increases blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing and decreasing local factors that cause pain.
Evidence shows an overall IMPROVEMENT rate of 77% for chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment.

HEAR WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Thank you so much
Was seen by Chloe and she’s amazing! Really knowledgeable, patient, explained everything to me in detail, was gentle and thorough. Wonderful experience and I was in so much pain I could barely walk. She definitely put me at ease. Thank you so much Chloe.
They were both amazing
I have seen both James & Liz here for chronic headaches and migraines and they were both amazing. They both helped relieve my pain a tremendous amount and set me on the path to finding the cause of my chronic pain. I can’t thank them enough and I’d recommend them to anyone needing their help! Thank you both!
I have a life again
Been seeing Rachel for a few months now, before I started treatment I was in so much pain after work I’d cry at the thought of getting out the car and putting pressure on my feet, sometimes sleep in the car so I didn’t have to get out… But after seeing Rachel I have a life again and sometimes forget I even have foot problems.
I feel my visits with James are very beneficial to my shoulder problem. Using different techniques along with massage has been different to other methods I have tried, would highly recommend
First nights full sleep
I’ve had the first nights full sleep since I don’t know when, I have never had this sort of treatment before. It’s like a new shoulder, can’t wait for more in 2 weeks
After years of rotator cuff pain in both shoulders James has eased my discomfort considerably – it does take time & money together with daily exercises. I’m very pleased with the ongoing results

Shockwave treatment is safe and virtually painless. And there is a built-in adjusting feature which allows for customized settings during each session to suit.
How many Shockwave sessions will I need?
Many people experience relief after the first treatment but this varies depending on the condition being treated and severity as well as the shockwave therapy used. It is important to continue with treatments for best results, and we suggest a course of 3 treatments initially.

Results vary depending on the condition being treated, from 60-90% response. The benefits over other treatments are that long term results are excellent and when shockwave is used alongside other rehabilitation methods, then the results are greater and longer lasting.
