Shockwave Therapy



Tendon pain can be unrelenting.


Achilles, Patella, Plantar Fasciopathy and High Hamstring soreness can be a real pain in the arse, or heel, or knee..


You get my drift.

Tendon rehabilitation is my absolute passion. I think it appeals to my simple nature.


The aim is to decrease the bulk of the irritable stimulus

Modify the biomechanics to place less stress through the painful tissue

And progressively strengthen the structure

Most people will return to normal life and activity levels within a number of months.




However, what do you do if this process has failed you?

Or, what do you do if you want to give your body every possible chance of recovering effectively within the shortest time frame?

Shockwave therapy !

Or Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modality that sends acoustic waves into the body via a handheld applicator. This transfer of energy has an impact on different pain, and tissue adaptations and tricks cells into repairing themselves.
