ESWT Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment where a hand-held device is applied to painful areas and promoting the body to heal itself.

“Shockwave therapy offers two main advantages over traditional methods: fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity” (FDA).

 

What are Shockwaves?

Shockwaves are high-energy sound waves which are transmitted to  the affected area to accelerate healing.

The treatment increases blood flow, decreases localised pain and stimulates cell regeneration – this encourages the body to heal itself. Shockwaves also break down injured tissue and calcifications.

I can be the most stubborn person when it comes to pain; family and friends most regular saying is ' stop trying to be a hero'
I guess trying to prove I can cope and continue my 'life' duties was absolutely essential, or so I thought.

Almost three years ago I had a serious fall whilst on holiday, this impacted my shoulder which in turn resulted in sleep deprivation. I kept the mindset everything will go back to normal but after six months, I obtained help from my GP. I was offered injections and diagnostic scans revealed surgery would be needed. I was against surgery and did not want such invasive measures so continued a further two years getting worse.

I finally decided to contact Life Chiropractic in Rayleigh with little faith they would offer any successful treatment to aide my calcification tendinitis of the shoulder. The reception staff are first class, making everyone that comes through their door feel at ease. I soon relaxed and cannot fault them from start to finish.

To date I have received three weeks of treatment; adjustment with Tom plus shock wave therapy with Roy. The results are amazing already and I am getting more sleep than before. Daily tasks are also becoming easier and all without surgery. Tom and Roy are professional, non judgmental and I am extremely grateful to have found them.

Why did i 'try to be a hero' after all 'Life' is for living. Huge thanks to Tom and Roy, for getting me some sleep and some pain free moments. We have a way to go but 'life' is exciting. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who is suffering or trying to be the hero I was - Give it a go.

Shockwave Treatment FAQ’s

How successful is the treatment?

Statistics vary based on the conditions being treated – varying from 60-90% success rate. Studies have shown Achilles Tendonitis (heel pain) will experience a full recovery or significant reduction in their pain and injury.

 

Is Shockwave therapy painful?

During treatment you may experience some discomfort but the pain should be tolerable. Due to the analgesic effect of Shockwave Therapy many patients report immediate pain relief following treatment.

 

How many sessions are needed?

The amount of treatment sessions will vary depending on the type of shockwave used and conditions being treated. As a general rule 3-6 treatment sessions are advised. Your body will progress in  the healing process even 2-3 months after treatment has stopped.

 

Can Shockwave treat old & persistent injuries?

Shockwaves can treat both long-term chronic conditions and newer injuries, there is a great deal of evidence to show that Shockwave Therapy can achieve great results even with historical conditions.
