Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for tendon pain and other joint injuries. By delivering targeted impulses of energy towards damaged tissues, it stimulates blood circulation, reduces inflammation, and accelerates the body’s natural healing processes.

This regenerative therapy can be a solution for a range of musculoskeletal conditions, such as sports injuries, tendon-related issues, joint discomfort, and damage to soft tissues (you can read a full list below).

Meet our lead physiotherapist, Anil Prasad.

My name is Anil, and I am a physiotherapist. I have a university degree, and I have been working in London, India, and Dubai for the last 19 years. I have a special interest in managing sports and musculoskeletal injuries, as well as treating patients with chronic tendon & joint pain.

I use shockwave & exercise therapy to treat patients with chronic tendon pain. Shockwave therapy has been used for a few years now and generates a good response. There’s also evidence that it helps patients with chronic tendon pain. It addresses pain directly and, at the same time, has a regenerative aspect. 

Shockwave can help:

Non-invasive pain relief for restoring your mobility

Shockwave is an effective non-invasive and regenerative therapy, also referred to as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). It can help alleviate a range of common tendon issues like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, and tennis elbow. This regenerative therapy extends its benefits to conditions such as lateral hip pain, knee discomfort (patellar tendinopathy), and frozen shoulder.

Unlock the potential for healing with shockwave therapy, a non-invasive and regenerative procedure typically administered over a course of 4-6 sessions. Each session, spaced between five to seven days apart is tailored to the specific condition being treated. Alongside a prescribed rehabilitation programme from our physiotherapist we ensure a targeted and effective approach to your recovery.

Unlock the potential of shockwave therapy as a powerful and effective procedure for addressing inflammation in tendons and joints. This innovative approach extends its benefits to various conditions and sports injuries below:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Tennis elbow
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Hamstring tendinopathy 
  • Frozen shoulder 
  • Shoulder calcification 
  • Muscle pain
  • Bone Stress injury, e.g. Medial tibial stress syndrome (Shine Splints)

It can also aid to relieve the symptoms of wear and tear conditions including osteoarthritis of knees and hips.

Administered by our shockwave therapy specialist, the device delivers acoustic energy through the skin to the affected region of the body. These mechanical shockwaves, distinctively non-electric, manifest as audible, high-energy sound waves that effectively enhance blood circulation to the injured area. This non-invasive approach harnesses the power of sound to stimulate healing in a targeted and controlled manner.

Initially, shockwaves play a role in desensitising nerve endings, providing immediate pain relief. Subsequently, these energy waves induce controlled trauma, leading to heightened blood circulation and metabolism. This, in turn, stimulates the production of enzymes in the affected area, fostering an accelerated healing process and a concurrent reduction in pain. In essence, the energy acts as a “re-boot” for tendons, revitalising and optimising their healing response.

At our facility, we provide a comprehensive approach to shockwave therapy by offering both radial and focused options. Radial shockwave therapy disperses energy in a broader pattern, ideal for addressing larger areas or superficial injuries. On the other hand, focused shockwave therapy concentrates energy at a specific point, making it suitable for targeting deeper tissues or more localised concerns.

Our experienced practitioner will assess your condition and recommend the most appropriate type of shockwave therapy based on your individual needs. Whether you require a more widespread treatment or a targeted approach, we have the expertise and technology to tailor the therapy to optimise your healing process.

How can EMTT help?​

Energetic magnetic waves induce the formation of new blood vessels (a process known as neovascularisation). This improved blood supply in turn leads to an increase in cell proliferation and tissue regeneration in the affected area.

The process​

EMTT is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment in which the instrument head is held over the targeted area. High energy magnetic pulses are then transmitted through the clothes, skin and tissues to reach the target area. The energy waves create a controlled trauma that causes an increase in blood circulation which triggers enzyme production in the affected area. This in turn promotes and accelerates healing and reduces pain. Depending on what’s being treated it generally involves a course of 4-6 sessions, with each session taking part five to ten days apart. 

The process

We have endeavoured to make the process as straight forward and efficient as possible.

Frequently asked questions

You would not be suitable for shockwave therapy if:

  • You have a circulation or nerve disorder
  • The target area is infected
  • The target area has a bone condition
  • The target area has an open wound
  • You are pregnant 
  • You are on blood thinning medication
  • You are under 18
  • You have metal pins/objects in the target area

Certain medications may be contraindicated such as, anticoagulants or corticosteroids but this would first need to be discussed with your clinician during your consultation.

Shockwave therapy, is a non-invasive procedure which most people find painless. However, depending on the area being treated (if near bone) and the severity of your injury you might feel a little pain or discomfort in the treatment area during the procedure.

Most patients say it feels like small pulses against the skin. Your specialist may be able to adjust the way they use the shockwave device if your pain is significant.

The initial consultation can take up to 1 hour. During this time, a full history of the injury will be taken, treatment provided, and the consultant will go over your treatment plan.

Follow up session will take between 30 mins to 45 mins.

You can book yourself directly in for your shockwave consultation and treatment. During the consultation, your clinician will assess you functionally and scan area using ultrasound to confirm a diagnosis and assess the tissue. In some cases if suspected stress fracture, an MRI scan may be required which we can do on site at an extra cost. 

We advise you wear something loose fitting around the area you want treated so the clinician can have access. If not, we can provide a robe and somewhere to change. Some gel will need to be applied to the area for the procedure. 

Yes, you will be able to walk after your shockwave therapy. Your clinician will guide you with a graded rehabilitation programme with shockwave therapy.

Typically, a patient would be advised to have 4-6 shockwave therapy sessions, with each session 5-7 days apart for maximum benefits.

How does it work?

Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Shockwaves are characterised by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity.

The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter the of the applicator and further into the tissue
