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.

What People Have To Say About At Health

“My wife, who has been to Matthew on a number of occasions for sports related injuries, insisted that I book an appointment for my continued complaints of neck, shoulder pain and headaches. Almost two decades of working at computer had left me with aches and pains which seemed to be worsening over the recent years. After the 1st treatment my headaches had completely gone, and by the 3rd, my neck and shoulder pain had too. Matthew took the time to explain to me the reason working at desk caused so many office workers to experience similar issues to mine – it made complete sense – he provided me with a few simple stretches and exercises to prevent my symptoms returning, and still now, no pain at all. A 10/10 guy and equally great osteopath.

“Matt is superb!! Has cured me of a couple of very painful back injury’s, he has also cured my son of a rugby injury, fitting him in as soon as he could on a weekend, Matt went above and beyond to help him. We will always go back to him with any future issues. He also gives extremely helpful after care!”

Natalie Cooper

“For the first time in 15 years I feel confident that the underlying cause is being dealt with. After only a few weeks, I have 50% reduction in pain, more mobility in my neck and shoulders and have reduced my medication. Matt and I are confident that I will have a medication free future – an amazing thought after so much time and so much pain”
