Shockwave Therapy

Conditions like tennis elbow, shoulder tendinopathies or back pain can be troublesome and long lasting. With Shockwave patients usually feel a reduction in pain after the very first session.

Shockwave therapy, alongside an exercise programme, will ensure a quicker recovery from injury and has produced excellent clinical results for muscle pain in the hip, knee, shoulder or neck.

Each treatment session takes 5 or 10 minutes and most conditions require 3 to 5 sessions, depending on the tissue response.
