Why use shockwave therapy?
Physiotherapy UK is proud to offer the latest in rehabilitation technology. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a system that sends sound waves to painful areas on the body. Used by high profile professional sports bodies such as Newcastle United Football Club, the treatment is a low-pain method, just like medical acupuncture, that can produce fantastic results from a number of injuries and conditions.
How does the treatment work?
Typically a ESWT treatment programme at Physiotherapy UK will take six sessions over six weeks. With clinical reports showing that 69% of 149 randomly selected patients reported “excellent” results (no pain), this treatment is perfect for those suffering from painful issues. ESWT can be used on a number of different areas, from the Achilles’ tendon to back and shoulder pain and everything in between.
