What is Radial Shockwave Therapy
Radial Shockwave Therapy is a modern and effective treatment* for a wide range of common tendon problems including:
- Patella Tendonitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Calcific Tendonitis of the shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Trochanteric Bursitis of the hip
- Golfer's Elbow
* Shockwave treatment is supported by NICE the Governments Health watchdog and current research reports success rates between 65 and 91% in reducing patient’s pain and symptoms after a course of 3-5 sessions.
There are very few adverse effects which make Shockwave therapy a very compelling therapeutic modality for the treatment of chronic tendon problems. Treatment courses are typically 3-5 sessions, each a week apart.
Until recently, a course of Shockwave Therapy was an expensive treatment choice. It was only available privately and in only a few consultant lead clinics. Since 2012, we are proud to be one of the first physiotherapy clinics in Portsmouth to be able to offer this effective treatment at an affordable price.
