Extracorporeal Shock Wave therapy
(ESWT) is a new technology using shockwaves to treat chronic, painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. A shockwave is a series of high-energy percussions applied from outside your body. It can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, in particular, those involving areas where major connective tissue attaches to bone.

1Common conditions that can be successfully treated by shockwaves are:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel spurs syndrome
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Patellar tendonitis,
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Calcific tendinisis of shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Trigger points in muscles
  • Shin Splints
  • Iliotibial band friction syndrome


Shockwave therapy sessions are provided by our physiotherapist or chiropodist and can be claimed under “physiotherapy” or “chiropody” coverage through your insurance plan.
