Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is an alternative treatment option for some tendon injuries i.e. tennis elbow, calcific tendonitis and plantar fasciitis.
Based within Fairfield Independent Hospital, our Physiotherapy department offers extracorporeal shock wave therapy.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves passing shock waves through your skin to the affected area. You may need several sessions to see a real improvement.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy can be used for chronic:
- Tennis elbow
- Calcific tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
No GP referral is required. You can book an appointment with our specifically trained physiotherapists for an in-depth initial assessment to see how extracorporeal shock wave therapy can help you.
