This Is Our Passion

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment which utilises soundwaves transmitted to localised injured tissue to reduce pain, accelerate healing and stimulate cell regeneration.

What conditions can shockwave therapy treat?

  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (outer hip)
  • Patellar tendinopathy (Jumper’s knee)
  • Tennis/golfers elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Low Back Pain
  • Frozen shoulder

What are the benefits of shockwave therapy?

  • Non-invasive – no medication
  • Reduces need for steroid injections and surgery
  • Transient analgesic effect after treatment
  • Clinical results range between 60- 90% successful depending on the condition being treated
  • Best non invasive treatment option if all other conservative treatment has failed
  • The effects of shockwave therapy are enhanced by rehabilitation

our ESWT Frequently asked questions

Most clients tolerate shockwave well and you will feel some discomfort.

For musculoskeletal problems such as tendon pain we will recommend a combination of shockwave and rehabilitation as clinical trials have shown greater effectiveness than using shockwave alone.

After a shockwave treatment you do not have to rest and you can continue with your normal activities, you can attend alone as you can drive afterwards.

Clients can see an improvement sometimes after the first treatment and the real strength of shockwave therapy is in its medium to long term results.

This depends largely on which device we use, the length of time you have had the problem and the severity of your symptoms. We typically treat between 3-5 sessions on average.

Shockwave therapy is a safe treatment approved by NICE and used within the NHS. All our clinicians are trained at the highest standard in the use of Shockwave Therapy.

Our shockwave devices are engineered by Swiss based Storz Medical, world and market leader in shockwave therapy research, development and manufacturing. They are fully CE certified for safety and effectiveness. We have 2 devices and are able to provide radial and focussed shockwave therapy.

Patrick handles all the organising of the practice … well, when Christine isn’t running it.  He has been with the company for eight years now. Prior to that, he spent 20 years as marketing manager at a bakery in Brighton – not putting the holes in the doughnuts! 

To his great surprise Patrick graduated from Luton University with a B.A. in Business & Marketing. He also serves as a trustee of a local veterans charity.  In his spare time, Patrick is a keen mountain biker and enjoys watching his daughter playing netball and basketball all round the country … and listening to some great tunes (well he thinks they are).  He believes that challenges make life interesting, but overcoming those challenges makes life meaningful.

As a final word, Patrick is obsessed with ensuring that all our awesome clients receive the highest level of service and care and safest possible environment.
