Enjoy the benefits of extracorporeal shockwave therapy, right here at our state of the art facility in Gosforth.
Shockwave therapy can effectively treat conditions like foot arch pain, tennis elbow, lateral hip pain, and achilles, patella or shoulder tendonitis.
State of the art equipment
We’ve invested in state of the art shockwave equipment, to make extracorporeal shockwave therapy more accessible to those who could benefit from it.
The results of this type of therapy can be greatly improved when you combine it with a structured training programme. Our team of trainers and physiotherapists will help you to get your momentum back!
Our professional physiotherapists are all registered members of the Health and Care professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
An added bonus
Shockwave is included in the services that we offer. If you will benefit from treatment with ESWT your clinician will use it at no extra cost.
As a guide most clients will need 4 – 6 sessions. We only invest in technology that we know works for you, and we don’t like to charge extra so there are no hidden costs.
The team are very knowledgeable, get to the root cause of the issue and make sure the injury is treated properly. Most importantly they inform and educate about the ways to prevent an injury reoccurring. I highly recommend.
Who we’ve worked with
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves sound waves being delivered to specific damaged tissues.
How does it work?
Sound waves cause microtrauma, which increases blood flow within the affected area. This stimulates cell regeneration and healing while decreasing local factors that can cause pain.
What does shockwave therapy feel like?
During the treatment, you will feel the shockwaves as pulses that cause a little discomfort, but not pain. Typically, your first treatment will begin with a low level of intensity that we slowly increase to a point where you still feel comfortable.
Are there any after effects?
After the treatment, you may experience some reddening of the skin, and the area may be sensitive to the touch for a short period. Rest assured that these after-effects are common and will soon pass.
