SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment that treats specific damaged tissue, sports injuries and tendon problems.  

Using state of the art equipment operated by the most experienced Osteopaths in Hertfordshire, ESWT is a non surgical approach which can be used to treat a range of injuries⁠.

Shockwave therapy is a fast, effective & non-invasive treatment using waves which increases blood circulation and metabolism to the injured tissue. ⁠
This accelerates the body’s natural healing process by increasing cell generation & overstimulated nerves which reduces pain.⁠

SWT is recognized as the best non-invasive approach for chronic tendon problems with minimal patient restrictions or side effects and is incredibly safe. ⁠

Most treatment approaches last for 4-6 weekly sessions but can vary depending on your circumstances. ⁠

FAQ

WILL SHOCKWAVE THERAPY HELP ME?

Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their problem.

 

DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?

There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session

 

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–5) treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED THE TREATMENT?

Most indications require 3–5 treatments which are done 3–10 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response
