Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment option in rehabilitation medicine. The machine is used to deliver sound waves through to the painful area activating the body’s self-healing abilities.
The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave in the body and this stimulates healing through increasing blood flow. The damaged tissue will gradually regenerate and heal. It is effective as part of a structured program of exercise and lifestyle management in the treatment of over-use tendinopathies such as those below:
Kingfisher House, Waters Edge Business Park, Campbell Road, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire ST4 4DB
1 George House, Princes court, Beam Heath Way Nantwich, Cheshire CW5 6GD
7 Mallard Court, Mallard Way, Crewe Business Park Crewe, Cheshire CW1 6ZQ
Parking spaces are available outside each of our clinic buildings. Please arrive 5 minutes early for an assessment appointment as you will be asked to complete a consent form prior to entering the treatment room. Bring along any referral letters, scans, reports that you may have.
Please wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. You may be asked to remove clothing so all relevant areas can be examined. If you are presenting a limb injury, please bring a pair of shorts or a thin strapped top to make it easier for your therapist to examine or you may be asked to change into a pair of shorts privately in the treatment room.
