Shockwave Therapy In London

Shockwave Therapy Covent Garden & Finchley

What is Shockwave Therapy?

At Health uses extracorpeal shockwave therapy, the latest in technology to help get rid of stubborn, long term soft tissue injuries such as grater trochanteric pain syndrome, golfers/tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis. 

Shockwave uses an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots on musculoskeletal tissues that works primarily on subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. 

The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue.

Why Choose Shockwave?

The latest shockwave research has been shown to have great results for those who have chronic musculoskeletal complaints. The best results are achieved quickly over 3-6 treatments. When combined with proper rehabilitation the results have been shown to have great results over the course of the year, with very few people relapsing. 

Due to the fact shockwave is non-invasive, no anaesthesia, surgery or medication is needed and it’s rare to have any sort of complications. It really is one of the best one ways approaches to chronic musculoskeletal pain.

What People Have To Say About At Health

Superb treatment. I injured my hip during marathon training just 3 weeks before the race. Andrew helped massively to relieve the pain and get my body fit for the start line. He was brilliant with communication and gave me great advice before and after the race.

I was going through severe knee pain and my doctor recommended that I see an osteopath. I started my sessions with Andrew and by the end of the second session itself I could see a difference.. I continued for few more sessions and I can say with confidence that my mobility and strength has improved tremendously. He not only taught me exercises to do at home, but would also make it a point to follow up on whether I was doing those:). He is very committed to his work and I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew to anyone who requires an osteopathy session.


Very professional and passionate about his work. Knowledgeable and a lovely person. My back is 90% better after one visit
