23 Jul New Shockwave Therapy
Now available this new therapy to the clinic is getting some remarkable results with chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
RPW stands for Radial Pressure Waves and these enter the body through a hand held applicator.
It is particularly suitable for conditions where the healing process has slowed up or has stopped with traditional methods. Some injuries that have become chronic and are slow to respond can have quite dramatic changes after just one session.
Shockwave therapy can;
- deliver immediate pain relief which can last up to 4 weeks
- is totally non-invasive as well as quick to administer
- can ‘reboot’ healing process
- Improved recovery
Which conditions can it treat?
Here are a few;
- Tennis or Golfers elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Rotator cuff
Shockwave is not suitable for conditions around the spine or brain.
Our physiotherapist Deborah Bailey will be able to advise you further on suitable conditions or treatment with Shock wave therapy.
