Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), is a clinically proven and highly effective treatment for chronic soft tissue musculoskeletal conditions such as achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciopathy, tennis elbow and rotator cuff injury.
It is recommended in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines and is an excellent non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option. We have a top of the range Shockmaster 500 model at GoPerform.
Treatment is usually carried out at weekly intervals and will typically involve 3-5 treatments carried out at 7-10 day intervals alongside a tailored rehabilitation programme. Shockwave therapy stimulates the healing process and can improve the quality and symptoms of chronic tendon and muscle tissue. Medical insurance is also able to cover the cost of treatment.
