goPhysio is delighted to be able to offer one of the most effective solutions to resolving stubborn, long standing musculoskeletal injuries, to the clinic. Hampshire Shockwave Therapy provides a unique combination of our injury assessment and treatment skills, with the latest shockwave treatment technology, to help you recover from your stubborn injury. It is a genuine alternative to corticosteroid injections and even surgery.
Shockwave Therapy (SWT) has been shown to be beneficial in treating a wide range of soft tissue injuries, which have been resistant to more traditional forms of treatment. These include injuries such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinopathies, Calcific Tendonitis of the shoulder, Tennis and Golfer's Elbow.
The shockwave machine, produces ‘energy waves’ which are targeted to the injured tissues, bringing about it’s beneficial effects. It is a mechanical wave, not an electric one. The mechanical waves kicks off inflammation in the area. In turn, the body responds by increasing blood flow to that area which accelerates the body’s own natural healing process. The shock waves can also break down injured tissue and calcifications.
Shockwave Therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process in ‘delayed, slow to heal’ conditions, kick starting the healing process, getting you better quicker.
SWT is a well known treatment for injuries to the soft tissues, muscles and tendons. It is particularly effective in the treatment of longer term injuries, that have failed to respond to other treatments, and is a viable alternative to cortisone steroid injections and surgery.
According to The National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence (NICE), there are specific conditions that may respond best to SWT. NICE’s remit is to make recommendation on various treatments that have been evidenced and backed by substantial research. For SWT, we have six conditions with such guidelines in place.
If you have been suffering with any of these conditions for some time and if they’ve failed to improve with other treatments, then read on, as SWT could certainly help you.
For the best outcomes with SWT treatment, it is important that your injury or condition is correctly diagnosed. Following this, the most effective, suitable and individualised treatment plan for you should be started, ensuring you receive the right treatment at the right time, to speed your recovery.
Shockwave Therapy can be a realistic alternative to steroid injections or surgery.
There are many benefits to having Shockwave Therapy, including:
At goPhysio, we follow a strict protocol and guidelines to assess the suitability of SWT for your injury. If SWT will help you, treatment will start on your first session with us.
Each session will be tailored to your individual needs and goals, but as a guide your first session will be 45 minutes including a full injury assessment, diagnosis and your first SWT treatment.
