Shoulder Pain Treatment & ShockWave Therapy

Our new treatment for chronic shoulder pain shows more than it promises!

The story is that after 10 years of using our Radial devices we upgraded to the latest focused technology within the shock wave relm. And the shoulder is where tech comes into its own. While we used to get success with our radial shock wave unit the Focused has picked up the success rate in shoulders, specifically very sore shoulder patients and calcific shoulder treatment.

What is Shock Wave Treatment?

It's Sound Waves delivered Very Fast Speeds

Studies have shown that a Soundwave treatment called "Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy" can help a painful rotator cuff/ shoulder pain issue. Shock Wave Therapy waves drum the tissue that's injured to break up scar tissue or calcification with injured tendons.

Extracorporeal means the sound wave is created outside the body and channelled in. So the 'Extracorporeal' Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT involves applying high-energy or low-energy shock waves to the sensitive area -- in this case, the rotator cuff (muscles group that controls shoulder stability).

Types Of ESWT We Offer:

As we specialise in Shock wave therapy we have two units/generators the older type of Radial shock wave therapy and the NEW type of Focused shock wave therapy

Calcified Tendonitis Of The Shoulder

The ability of the sound wave treatment to treat calcific tendonitis of the rotator cuff, a common cause of shoulder pain is incredible. The percentage of success is unbelievable huge when considering suffering from calcific tendonitis and previously had to have surgery. 

In this condition, calcium deposits build up on the tendons that connect shoulder muscles to the nearby bones and would be resistant to conventional physiotherapy. 

The shock wave treatment has been shown to promote reabsorption of calcified deposits. If your condition has been persistent, it is likely that you are suffering from calcific tendonitis. We can arrange a full analysis of the shoulder and also provide treatment to remedy this condition quickly.

WHERE DOES ACHILLES PAIN COME FROM?

The pain comes from inflammation within the tendon itself. Because it can be an early sign of an Achilles tendon rupture, it is best to rest and seek care, especially if you're a passionate athlete. The pain is sharp and often throbs after exercise. In some cases, swelling might be present. 

In other situations, Achilles Tendon pain shows without swelling, heat, or redness and in these chronic (long-standing) conditions the term Tendinosis is more appropriate; common training errors often cause it.

Most sufferers are runners or sportsmen and normally in their 30s or 40s. - Two forms of the condition are recognized (Insertional and Non-Insertional);

 1. Non-insertional: - tenderness is localized high up in the tendon normally at the thinnest section 1-2 inchs below calf muscle belly.

 

 2. Insertional tendinitis: Pain and tenderness are close to the heel. Within this form, another underlying cause of calcification of tendon insertion might be present. This calcification condition is be picked up by X-ray examination that is done at the clinic. It often arises because of earlier acute tendonitis but is rare.

Professional Back Pain Treatment in Wimbledon

Over 70% of back pain is mechanical and comes from the small joints of the back. 
For quick short term recovery manipulation is a gold standard. After the pain is reduced a course of massage and exercise is supplied to ensure long-term pain relief.

In the other 30% of cases, spinal discs play a role.

Decompression and distractive techniques can help these, and the clinic has specialist benches to make this an easy procedure.

Shock wave therapy isn't effective on these pain generating tissues but is used on tissues that are involved in secondary roles.

The key to good back pain treatment results is in the understanding exactly which is why the clinic uses X-Ray, MRI and Spinal Mouse diagnostic tools to accompany diagnosis made in the clinic. All these can be done efficiently by the clinic without referral to your GP.

Shock Wave Therapy for Hip pain (Bursitis)

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment in which a device is used to pass acoustic shockwaves through the skin to the affected area. ESWT may be applied in one or several sessions and leads to trochanteric pain syndrome accelerated healing.

The area of the hip is quite large so that you may need 3-5 treatments done at weekly intervals.

More traditional steps of massage and mobilisation can be used but often take five times longer for both treatments and recovery. The option of shock wave therapy (ESWT) is unique to our clinic but is safe and very effective. 

If you seek pain relief for any of these hip pains or need a diagnosis, then get in touch by requesting a callback.
