SHOCKWAVE THERAPY LONDON

Radial Shockwave Therapy is an effective non-invasive treatment that promotes healing and reduces pain in a number of sports and musculoskeletal conditions. Much of the research into shockwave therapy surrounds its use to treat kidney stones – lithotripsy. Today, while over 98% of all kidney stones are treated with this technology, it has become increasingly useful for a wide range of sports and musculoskeletal injuries.

  • What is it?

  • What can be treated with Shockwave Therapy?

    Shockwave therapy is used to treat many orthopaedic conditions, including but not limited to the following:

    • Calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder or elbow
    • Some types of Achilles tendinopathy
    •  Golfer’s elbow (Medial epicondylopathy)
    • Heel spurs (Plantar fasciitis)
    • High hamstring tendinopathy
    •  Jumper’s knee (Patellar tendinopathy)
    • Tennis elbow (Lateral epicondylopathy)
    • Trochanteric bursitis of the hip
  • How does it work?

    The term “shockwave therapy” refers to the mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave towards an injured structure. This results in a biological reaction within the cells of that tissue. The shock wave encourages new blood flow and promotes tissue healing. It promotes a new inflammatory response and thereby initiates a healing response.

  • How long does it take?

    Most sessions take only 15-20 minutes, and most people require only 3 sessions.

  • Does it hurt?

    We use a German made device called the Zimmer enPuls, specifically because it delivers a patented “Soft Shot” pulse which is much less likely to cause discomfort during treatment. If the problem is over bony areas or calcific deposits treatment can be uncomfortable, though most patients find it tolerable. Ice or analgesia can also improve comfort of the procedure.
