Radial Shockwave Therapy in London

Are you tired of suffering from persistent, debilitating pain? Perhaps you’re seeking a drug-free solution that doesn’t involve unpleasant side effects. We are pleased to provide Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT), a modern and non-invasive protocol to address musculoskeletal disorders for patients of all walks of life.

What Can Shockwave Therapy Help?

We’ve seen patients with a variety of chronic pain issues respond extremely well to care, specifically those dealing with tendinopathies. Overuse injuries or old injuries also can also be addressed with the non-surgical therapy. We’re proud to help patients of all ages and stages of life get back to doing what they love, especially individuals (or athletes) suffering from, trochanteric bursitis (hip pain), patella tendinopathy (knee pain), achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis (foot arch pain especially notable in the morning), calcific tendinitis of the shoulder and more.

How Does It Work?

Shockwaves are high-energy sound waves that are transmitted to the affected area to accelerate healing. RSWT increases blood flow, decreases localised pain and stimulates cell regeneration. A handheld device is applied outside the body, introducing energy to painful areas and prompting the body to heal itself.

The best part? The therapy isn’t painful, and it can be catered to your level of comfort.

Areas That Can Be Addressed

The following parts of the body can be treated with RSWT:

  • Achilles
  • Back
  • Feet
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Shins
  • Shoulders

He has advanced certification in Radial shock wave therapy and attends regular seminars and talks by experts in the field. He is also keeping abreast of innovations being made as well as new research and studies showing its significance.

Our chiropractor, who is himself a runner, is pleased to offer our patients this promising modality that may help with many tendinopathy issues and more.

For conditions like Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis, 80-90% of people can experience significant long term improvement.
