Following lockdown several tendon injuries have been on the rise, including tennis elbow, golfers elbow and plantar fasciitis. If you are one of the many struggling with conditions like this, you may benefit from an innovative non-invasive treatment called Shockwave Therapy. With our partners R&D Physio London, we now offer this treatment at our central London clinic on Queen Anne Street.
Shockwave Therapy has been in use medically for nearly 3 decades to treat a range of different conditions, including the dissolution of kidney stones. More recently, shockwaves have been used to treat a number of orthopaedic conditions, especially tendon injuries.
What are Shockwaves?
Shockwaves are high-energy, audible sound waves applied to injured tendons and tissues to accelerate healing. When shockwaves are focused on affected tissues, they can increase blood flow which stimulates restoration and regeneration.
Shockwave Therapy Machines are clinically proven and are recommended by several of the UK’s top orthopaedic hospitals. A number of high-profile professional sports clubs such as UK Athletics, Welsh Rugby Union and several Premier League football clubs, utilise Shockwave Therapy for treating specific injuries.
