Choice Physio are now exclusively offering Shockwave Therapy in our Sawbridgeworth clinic.
This is a clinically proven treatment modality which, in addition to our other treatments, can help to speed up the recovery of many soft tissue conditions. Shockwave therapy is highly regarded as one of the leading non-invasive treatments for acute and chronic tendon conditions (particularly persistent, long term tendon injuries / pain).
Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that sends high energy sound waves into the affected area to accelerate healing. The treatment increases blood flow, decreases localised pain and stimulates cell regeneration - this encourages the body to repair itself. Shockwave can also break down injured tissues and calcifications.
The treatment has NICE guidance for many tendon injuries / presentations, which is the gold standard for therapists to refer to when using evidence based practice.
