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  Josh's knowledge is second to none and always goes the extra mile to make sure you're getting the best recovery. Highly recommended!

    thumb Shaun Bokenham
  • 5 star review  The rehabilitation programme I received was delivered in a professional and appropriate manner. All sessions were relaxed, I felt I could ask questions and feel very much a part of my recovery process. Sincere thanks to all at Reflex18 but a particular thank you to Alice who guided me through some difficult times.

    thumb Suzanne Brewer
  • 5 star review  Josh was simply amazing. I visited Reflex-18 after my 4th knee surgery and had completed the physio that the hospital had prescribed which was fine for walking but not getting back to sport. Josh started by just taking an interest in the activities that I wanted to get back too and understanding the movement that was necessary. We took everything back to basics and started again by just learning to squat and making sure that my bodyweight was evenly distributed and we saw very early in it wasn’t. The exercises I was given to rectify this were easy to do at home but didn’t feel like ‘boring’ rehab exercises which you soon give up on. 6 months after seeing Josh I am back to full mobility and I am probably moving better than I ever have and more importantly pain free! Can’t thank Josh and Reflex-18 enough as never in my wildest dreams did I expect to where I am again let alone less than 6 months or so after seeing him.

  • 5 star review  I was recommended to see Alice by a friend and although I've only had one session, I am more confident in myself that with her help I can recover after a serious injury. Its going to take time but I know I'm in the right place! Mick Harty

  • 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
