Shock Wave Therapy

Springfield Hospital's Physiotherapy Department - Sports Injury Clinic has been investing in new, evidence-based physiotherapy techniques for treating chronic tendinopathies (tendon problems which have failed to resolve over six months) such as tennis elbow.

 

To this end, we now are able to offer treatment with the latest Shock Wave Therapy machine.

 

  • Shock Wave Therapy can be used to treat the following:-
  • Achillies Tendinopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Medial Shin pain/ Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Medial/ lateral Epicondyle Tendinopathy
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
  • Patella Tendinopathy

Shock Wave Therapy is a non-invasive/non-surgical procedure and produces a high intensity mechanical wave which when directed at injured tissue produces a healing response. This treatment has well established evidence and NICE Guidelines.

 

Shock Wave Therapy treatment includes four treatments on a weekly basis and is used in conjunction with traditional physiotherapeutic techniques. Research indicates that recovery can occur over several months. The self-financing cost will be at the very competitive rate of £300 for up to four sessions and £90 per session thereafter if required.

 

Following our recent audit, the results demonstrated that patient’s symptoms improved by a mean average of 67% (range 50-100%).

 

If you have a nagging long term chronic inflammation condition such as mentioned above you may benefit from Shock Wave Therapy, so contact our Physiotherapy Department on 01245 234045 or click here for more information on Shock Wave Therapy.
