SHOCKWAVE THERAPY AT PRIME HEALTH
Do you suffer with hip pain that prevents you from sleeping on your sides at night, that is painful to stand or walk for too long or is painful to walk inclines or stairs?
Or heel pain that makes you sore and limp first thing in the morning, after you get up from your desk or out of your car after you commute to work or prolonged periods on your feet?
At Prime Health, we understand that if you have been diagnosed with debilitating pain in your hips or heels seeking effective and long term pain relief is your priority.
Musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist specialist, Matthew Taylor, who runs regular clinics at Prime Health is now offering shockwave therapy for patients suffering with chronic heel and hip pain.
HOW DOES SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORK AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Shockwave Therapy delivers impulses of energy to damaged soft tissue to effectively kick-start the healing process and minimise pain. It is non-invasive, and offers long term benefits.
Reviewed and accepted by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), shockwave therapy is highly effective in the treatment of a range of debilitating pain conditions, particularly Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) or Plantar Fascia Heel Pain.
WHAT CONDITIONS DO YOU TREAT WITH SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
Shockwave is suitable for people that have had symptoms of debilitating pain that exceed 3 months in duration.
Conditions that will benefit from shockwave therapy treatment include Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) or Plantar Fascia Heel Pain.
HOW MANY ROUNDS OF SHOCKWAVE THERAPY ARE REQUIRED?
Each patient will be reviewed and recommended a suitable course of treatment for their condition, however it is recommended that between 3-6 rounds of shock wave treatment will benefit long term.
