Shockwave Therapy at Cornwall Physio
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is the gold-standard treatment for many soft-tissue and bone injuries, and can significantly speed up your healing and recovery. Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a revolutionary, clinically proven and highly effective treatment. Here at Cornwall Physio we’ve seen amazing results when combining Shockwave therapy with our other treatments.
How it Works
Shockwaves are non-invasive and non-electrical. They are actually a form of high energy sound wave and by applying them to the body we can speed up the body’s natural healing processes.
Key benefits of shockwave therapy include:
Conditions We Treat With Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave Therapy For Runners and Walkers
Many of the people we help with Shockwave therapy are walkers, runners, golfers, sports people, or people with physical jobs. Because injuries that shockwaves help with are often classed as ‘overuse injuries’, the people who get them are most often fairly active.
To get you back to walking, running or playing sport it's important that we combine your shockwave therapy with the correct rehabilitation. We are able to do this thanks to the expertise of our Physiotherapy team and our state of the art rehab facilities.
Amongst our rehabilitation facilities is our Anti-gravity treadmill, which will help you to walk or run again comfortably in the quickest possible time. Shockwave therapy in combination with anti-gravity treadmill training is a powerful combination when it comes to treating Achilles pain, runners knee and plantar fasciitis patients and we are amongst only a handful of clinics in the UK who are able to provide this.
