Radial and Focus Shockwave Therapy at Romford and Ilford Family Chiropractic

Shockwave therapy on elbowAre you seeking an effective and non-invasive way to relieve your pain and address various musculoskeletal conditions? If yes, we offer a fantastic solution at Romford and Ilford Family Chiropractic: shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT).

Shockwave therapy breaks up scar tissue and calcifications, increases blood flow, and stimulates the release of healing factors by creating a series of high-energy pressure sound waves.

Conditions It Can Address

This modality can yield favourable results for those with the following:

  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Calcific tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle pain
  • Non-healing fractures

The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is effective in reducing pain and improving function in a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. It is a non-invasive treatment, so no incisions or stitches are required. It is also a relatively quick treatment, with most sessions lasting only 15-30 minutes. Shockwave therapy can yield the same results as 12 sports therapy sessions after 3-6 treatments! Plus, the benefits can last up to three months afterwards.

Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT) is a highly effective treatment modality available at our clinic, particularly beneficial for patients suffering from conditions like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and shoulder tendinitis. This therapy uses shock waves to induce microtrauma to the tissue that causes the pain, promoting the body’s natural healing processes. The result is an increase in blood circulation and metabolism in the impacted area, leading to accelerated tissue repair and cellular growth. Patients often experience a significant reduction in pain and enhanced mobility. RSWT is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia, and is a quick procedure, making it a convenient and safe option for those looking for effective pain relief without the downtime associated with surgical interventions.

Focus Shockwave Therapy

At our chiropractic clinic, we are excited to offer Focus Shockwave Therapy, a state-of-the-art treatment that provides numerous benefits for patients with chronic pain conditions. This non-invasive therapy utilizes high-energy acoustic waves to target affected areas, promoting regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues. Not only is this method effective in accelerating recovery, but it also improves mobility and alleviates pain, making it a preferred choice for patients seeking alternatives to traditional pain management.

We understand that each patient’s needs are unique, which is why our fee schedule is designed to accommodate various treatment plans. The initial consultation is priced at £120 for a comprehensive 45-minute session. Should our skilled physiotherapist determine that Focus Shockwave Therapy is not necessary, the fee reduces to £70 for the consultation. For ongoing treatment, we offer a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) option at £99 for a 30-minute session. We also provide discounted packages for extended care: a pack of 3 sessions costs £270 (£90 per session), and a pack of 6 is priced at £410 (£85 per session). These options ensure that our patients can choose a treatment plan that best suits their health needs and financial situation.

What to Expect

During your session, you will lie on a treatment table while a gel is applied to your skin over the injured area. Our therapists will then use a handheld device to deliver the shockwaves to the targeted area. While you may experience mild discomfort during the treatment, it is usually short-lived.
