Shockwave Therapy Crouch End
At Tom Astley Physiotherapy in Crouch End we offer shockwave therapy, a clinically proven, non invasive and pain free treatment that involves sound waves passing through the tissue using a handheld probe to aid chronic soft tissue injuries.
Shockwave therapy is the ideal solution for those suffering with shoulder pain, hip pain, achilles tendon pain, tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis.
The way shockwave therapy can help ease your pain is through shockwave energy being conducted from the point of origin to the painful body area where it then applies fast and effective healing capabilities to increase circulation and stimulate cell regeneration.
It is a successful solution as it increases your blood circulation to the discomforted area before breaking down difficult fibrous scar tissue that has built up over time to alleviate your pain and help towards a full recovery. It is important to not leave an injury untreated as it can worsen the damage and pain to the surrounding healthy tissue.
To understand your needs, we will start your shockwave therapy journey with an assessment of your injury to make sure you are suitable and give a clear explanation of the treatment. Our team of professional physiotherapists may also suggest a hands on therapy that could be beneficial alongside shockwave therapy to help you get back to a comfortable level of activity.
There are no known side effects of shockwave therapy but rarely a mild pain or discomfort may occur after treatment that could last up to 24 hours.
For a good recovery, injuries usually require 3-4 shockwave therapy appointments with our modern and results heavy Lika Vario Pro machine which stimulates a repair process and relieves your pain symptoms.
