Shockwave Therapy Essex

A ground-breaking therapy for the treatment for common sports injuries that cause tendon pain.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary treatment which improves the speed you recover from tendon problems such as achilles pain or plantar fasciitis.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for soft tissue and musculoskeletal problems that are often associated with sports and exercise. Essentially the treatment involves applying a shockwave device to the area affected so acoustic waves can penetrate the damaged tissue within the tendon. The shockwaves produce an inflammatory response in the muscle, causing the body to increase metabolic activity around the site of pain, accelerating the healing process. The process only takes a few minutes and combined with a course of progressive rehab can significantly reduce healing time.

Who Is It For

Anyone with tendon pain – plantar fascia pain, achilles pain, patella tendon pain, hip pain.

Pricing

£60.00 – Per Session

Appointment info

Please make sure that when you attend your appointment you come suitably dressed so that the clinician can access the appropriate area.

WHAT TO EXPECT

At your initial appointment you will be fully assessed as any other appointment. The shockwave therapy lasts about 5 minutes, but we combine this treatment with exercises and advice to improve your recovery from pain. Depending on your goals, rehab exercises will be given to you to help you get there. It is recommended that you have 3 shockwave sessions, spaced 1 week apart to get the full affect of the treatment.

  • 5 star review  I saw Tom and very quickly booked a second appointment! He is professional and very knowledgeable. I am confident he can resolve my issues.

    thumb Ian Fraser
  • 5 star review  I had to take my daughter to see Josh recently as she was experiencing knee pain whilst running. The treatment, advice and care she received were first class and have helped her recovery to running fitness. I would not hesitate to recommend Josh to anyone who needs help in terms of injury or just good advice.

  • 5 star review  Paul is such a superstar! He is calm, friendly, professional and most of all caring. He took such good care of my son and made sure he was fine throughout his nail avulsion and has given us comprehensive after care. Thank you!

    thumb Charise de Becker
  • 5 star review  I developed a severe back problem over Christmas to a point where I couldn’t walk unaided. Thinking it was going to be a long recovery ahead I have been amazed by the work Josh does - he has fantastic knowledge and I felt I could fully trust him - 4 appointments in and I feel far better than I thought I would. Fantastic physio!

    thumb Layla Drewell
  • 5 star review  Reflex18 was recommended to me when I had issues with my ankle for many seasons, I couldn’t have asked for more Josh’s recommendations and knowledge meant that after 3/4 sessions my ankle felt completely different and was able to play pain free for the first time in a couple of years, highly recommended 👍🏼

  • 5 star review  Both myself and my son have been seeing Josh for various injuries/issues over the last couple of years, which on occasions has been complimented with other members of his team. I can’t speak highly enough of the service Josh provides. From the initial advice & diagnosis through to the treatment and exercises recommended by him, the whole experience is first class. An added benefit is the gym that the clinic offers as part of your rehabilitation and further enhances the business and helps to set Josh above any other physio I have previously visited. In a nutshell I would have no hesitation in recommending Josh and his colleagues to anyone requiring physio and related treatments.

    thumb Stuart Paris
  • 5 star review  I had a great experience using Reflex-18! The physiotherapist, Alice, was just so lovely, kind, compassionate and really took her time to assess me holistically and gave me some really good exercises to go away and do and was just a star! Thank you Alice! I would highly recommend!

    thumb Rebecca Hudson
  • 5 star review  Friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff made me feel relaxed and in good hands from my first session. Spacious gym and treatment rooms help to reach your goals and aid your recovery.

    thumb Al Martin
  • 5 star review  Friendly and professional service. Recommend using them

    thumb Peter Lucas
  • 5 star review  Really pleased with the treatment received from Josh at Reflex-18 for a frozen shoulder, culminating to a long kayak trip today. At one point, pre treatment, I did wonder if that would be possible again as I couldn’t even put a coat on without assistance. And importantly, I felt COVID-19 safe throughout, witnessing thorough cleaning pre and post appointments. Many thanks Josh. 👍🏼
