Radial Shockwave Therapy

Developed from lithotripsy. Good quality research is supportive of the shock wave therapy , particularly in recalcitrant  plantar fasciitis, lateral hip pain, lower limb tendinopathy and calcific tendonitis of the shoulder.

The UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (www.nice.org.uk) recognises it has  potential for high clinical impact in these areas.

It is a  safe modality that can be helpful most especially when combined with sound clinical reasoning and tailored exercise program. A treatment course involves 3 to 6 sessions.

There is an additional $25 fee  on top of standard consultation fee for this therapy.
