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  First visit the Relex 18. Easy to park and a nice welcome on entering. Treatment was good and the Physio took time to listen and explain the treatment I would be having. I would recommend

    thumb Mark Brazier
  • 5 star review  Best physiotherapist I’ve seen. Over the years I’ve seen a few physio’s and I can say that the physio I saw here knew what they were on about and gave me the help I needed in the space of about 3 weeks to a month of treatment for my injury! Would definitely recommend to anyone like myself who is very much into there exercise and does a competitive sport!

  • 5 star review  Josh has been great on helping me recover from more than one injury very quickly and efficiently. I didn't know a great deal about injury prevention or recovery but Josh has been really informative and helped me massively in understanding what I can do to prevent injury in the future. Highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  I returned to Reflex - 18 this time with a new injury. I saw Shaun who diagnosed the issue really quickly and worked on my back. Talk about a magician. Such a difference, i seriously cannot recommend these professionals enough. You wont go wrong by going here. Brilliant

  • 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!

  • 5 star review  In October 2020 I was diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles tendon which I had left undiagnosed and treated for a few months as I was aware what medical intervention would entail. Eventually I sought medical advice and was told I was facing an operation to reconnect the tendon using harvested tendon from my big toe which was going to result in a lot of time incapacitated and a long struggle to regain fitness afterwards. However, the surgeons gave me the opportunity of having physiotherapy first, to see if that would work before a final decision was taken. As a result I visited Josh in November 2020 and 6 months later I am virtually walking normally and can weight bear on my bad ankle again. The final steps in my recovery can be carried out now that I can get outdoors walking again and also my gym being open. I cannot thank him enough for what he physically did for me and also his positive attitude in dealing with my problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending both him and Reflex 18. Many thanks.
