NEW! Shockwave Therapy now available
We are pleased to offer a new service at our Gateway House clinic in Bromborough…. Shockwave Therapy. Shockwave therapy is an up-to-date and extremely successful treatment type in Physiotherapy rehabilitation. Shockwave therapy works using a probe which is pressed on the affected area. Shockwaves are then delivered by the probe, through the skin and continue to spread throughout the injured tissue in radiating waves.
The injured tissue reacts to the shockwaves through mild inflammation, which in turn stimulates a natural response in the body, meaning increasing blood circulation and metabolism in the tissue. The therapy is not painful, rather the shockwaves feel like a pulse, which can sometimes be a little unpleasant. However the Physiotherapist will start on a low frequency and increase it ensuring you remain comfortable.
Conditions recommended for treatment with shockwave therapy:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
- Trochanteric bursitis
- Patella Tendinopathy
- Medial Tibial Periostitis
- Calcific Tendonitis Shoulder
