Physio Shockwave appeal
Our patients need your help ..
Mike explains how shock wave can help patients …
“Shockwave therapy is a novel, non-invasive, sound wave based treatment that can be used for a variety of common and debilitating soft tissue problems.
These include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, hip bursitis and tennis elbow. Passing short, intense sound waves into these painful tissues is thought to increase blood flow, reduce pain and stimulate tissue repair”.
How will it benefit Lymington patients Mike?
Conditions such as Achilles tendonitis do not always respond to the usual regime of non-invasive treatments used by clinicians within Orthopaedic Choice.
The added provision of shock wave therapy would allow Orthopaedic Choice to offer an additional, convenient, low-risk treatment option for such patients.
It has been shown, in one of neighbouring NHS trusts, to significantly improve pain in about 75% of patients, be associated with 82% patient satisfaction, zero complications, and 92% of patients would recommend the treatment to their friends / family.
