Shockwave Therapy

We are delighted to offer you a new additional service to enhance your Physiotherapy experience with us here at Physioflexx. We are one of the first local Private Physiotherapy practices to offer Shockwave Therapy also known as  Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy ( ESWT ) as a treatment solution for the rehabilitation of resistant MSK problems.

Our patients across Ayrshire and beyond can now benefit from this Industry recognised and effective technology for the treatment of a wide range of conditions.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing, and decreasing local factors which can cause pain. Shockwave is able to provide relief and enhance recovery and healing even in chronic cases where the body itself has previously demonstrated resistance.

Who is Shockwave Therapy suitable for?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy treatment is a highly effective treatment available for patients with:

  • Adolescent Osgood Schlatters syndrome
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Trochanteric bursitis ( lateral hip pain )

What does it cost?

Shockwave Therapy can be integrated into each standard treatment session for a supplementary fee of £15.00.
