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.

Testimonials

  • 5 star review  We have been using Reflex-18 for over a year now. On and off the entire family is using their extensive services. Josh and his team are all very professional and helpful. The best of all our aches and pains are treated effectively and always diagnosed properly. We recommend them to all our friends and would never switch to another physio provider.

  • 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!

    thumb Scott Wallman
  • 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  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. 👍🏼

    thumb Keith Savill
  • 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.

  • 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.

    thumb Jon belshaw
  • 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.
