Shockwave Therapy

Keeping You Active

Charlotte Lyons Physiotherapy is delighted to be able to offer you shockwave therapy with the EMS Swiss Dolorclast radial wave. 


Shockwave therapy is a clinically proven treatment for chronic soft tissue injuries and certain bone conditions, as recommended in the NHS NICE guidelines. 


Why should you chose to use the EMS Swiss Dolorclast radial wave? Not all shockwave therapy machines have the same energy output. EMS Swiss Dolorclast has been shown to be effective at providing higher energy output, this has been demonstrated to be essential for better treatment effects. 


Shockwave therapy will provide a non-invasive, high-energy sound wave that passes through the body tissues via a hand-held probe, treating a number of conditions. 


What does Shockwave Therapy treat?

Shockwave therapy can be effective for a wide range of soft tissue and bony conditions. Here are some examples of conditions where shock wave has effectively treated and restored normal function:

  • Shoulder pain, e.g. calcific lesions or tendinopathy of the rotator cuff, and bony spurs

  • Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)

  • Medial epicondylitis (golfer‘s elbow)

  • Hip pain (greater trochanteric pain syndrome)

  • Patellar tendinopathy (jumper‘s knee)

  • Hamstring tendinopathy

  • Tibial stress syndrome (shin pain)

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Heel pain, or heel spurs

  • Plantar fasciitis/ pain on the sole of the foot


How do I book shockwave therapy treatment?

A physiotherapy assessment is required by one of our Clinical Specialist Physiotherapists for shockwave therapy. 


What is the cost for shockwave therapy?

The cost of treatment per shockwave appointment is a supplementary £45 to your standard physiotherapy fee.


Why is a physiotherapy assessment essential for shockwave?

 For treatment to be effective your treatment must be selected carefully, and it must be determined as safe to use with your condition. Your treatment will be combined with a Physiotherapy rehabilitation programme. Your shockwave therapy appointment may include exercise rehabilitation and manual treatment that compliments your care.

Will my insurance provider cover the shockwave therapy treatment?

You will have to speak directly with your provider to check if they will cover the costs.
