Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis usually responds well to treatments such as stretches, orthotics (shoe inserts), changes in activity and physiotherapy. However, sometimes pain still continues. Shockwave therapy is one of the next treatment options available. 

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) consider this procedure to be safe. What are the benefits of shockwave therapy?


This treatment has been shown to increase blood circulation and activity in the cells in the treatment area, which in turns speeds up the body’s own healing process. The nerves can also be overstimulated by the shockwave, which leads to reduced pain sensation.

Lateral Epicondylitis

Lateral Epicondylitis is commonly known as tennis elbow while Medial Epicondylitis is known as golfers elbow.

It is caused by overuse of the muscles of the forearm which attach to the inner (golfers) and outer (tennis) elbow

Overuse causes tissue overload and cumulative micro-trauma where damaged tissue fails to properly heal. Pain and weakness then occur at the outside (lateral) or inside (medial) of the elbow joint

Symptoms include pain when lifting or bending your arm. Weakness and pain often occur when gripping and lifting objects or when twisting your forearm such as opening a jar

Symptoms may be progressive over many months or even years

Shockwaves are passed through the skin to the injured part of the elbow, using a special hand held probe.

The shockwaves applied promote blood flow and stimulate stem cell activity in the tissue providing pain relief while increasing the healing response.

For optimal treatment outcomes shockwave therapy will be combined with a bespoke rehabilitation and strengthening plan based around an assessment of your unique needs and goals by our experienced Physiotherapists
