Stubborn tendon issues? Tried everything? Read on …
Is that heel, shoulder, elbow or Achilles not responding to treatment?
You may think that most of our treatments work to reduce inflammation, in other words, they’re anti-inflammatory. But, with some stubborn problems, we actually go the other way, employing pro-inflammatory shockwave therapy.
This area of our work is called tendinopathy, the treatment of tendons, which are generally more resistant to healing than muscles. Shockwave is used alongside physio and soft tissue work to stimulate the healing process, to reignite it, if you like, in a controlled way.
Golfers with golfer’s elbow, tennis players with tennis elbow, runners with sore heels, Achilles tendons or plantar fasciitis, anyone with stubborn shoulder pain – all of you can benefit from shockwave.
Unlike in many clinics, shockwave comes at no extra cost at Grosvenor.
Shockwave increases the blood circulation and metabolism within the injured area, promoting the influx of vital nutrients to boost the healing process. You can expect to receive 4-6 treatments, with the improvement in the tissues continuing beyond your last shockwave session. It is important to continue your rehabilitation to gain maximum benefit.
If you have an injury that does not seem to be responding to your normal routine of rest, ice, compression, elevation, stretching or massage, please consider booking a treatment with us. If physio and soft tissue work does not help, we can discuss with you the option of bringing out “the big gun,” shockwave!
