Shockwave Therapy available at Hampstead Gardens

Published: June 5, 2018

A new therapy available at Back In Motion Hampstead Gardens will revolutionise treatment options for people suffering from painful and often debilitating tendon conditions.

Shockwave therapy has the potential to bring pain relief and accelerated healing to people with chronic, painful tendon injuries as well as musculoskeletal, orthopaedic, and sports-related injuries.

Used successfully for more than 20 years, shockwave therapy delivers short-burst pulses of low-acoustic sound waves to injured areas of the body via a hand-held device. These pulses stimulate the body’s natural healing process, improving blood flow to the injured area and reducing pain and muscle tension.

Clinical trials have shown that shockwave therapy has an up to 90 per cent success rate in some conditions in only four to five sessions. 

Shockwave therapy can be used to treat conditions including Achilles pain, tennis elbow, jumper’s knee, patellar tendinopathy, gluteal tendinopathy and shoulder tendinopathy as well as planter fasciitis, musculoskeletal disorders, chronic muscle dysfunction, and heel spur pain. 

Clients recommended for shockwave therapy could expect to have three to five shockwave treatments at one-week intervals although most people would see results after three sessions.
