Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) 'Shockwave'


‘Shockwave’ therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to physically vibrate and agitate musculoskeletal tissues. There is evidence that this stimulates regeneration. It is particularly useful for damaged tendons (tendinopathy). 

Available at Spire Manchester, BMI Alexandra and Bupa Piccadilly
