NEW therapy at Physio London – MEDIA RELEASE
New Therapy available at Physio London
EMS Shockwave Therapy
Physiotherapy London is one of only a handful of private physiotherapists to offer EMS Shockwave Therapy. Radial Shockwave Therapy is an effective non-invasive treatment that promotes healing and reduces pain in a number of sports and musculoskeletal conditions. Much of the research into shockwave therapy surrounds its use to treat kidney stones – lithotripsy. Today, while over 98% of all kidney stones are treated with this technology, it has become increasingly useful for a wide range of sports and musculoskeletal injuries.
The range of conditions that can be helped with this new therapy include:-
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis/Golf Elbow
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Frozen Shoulder
- Patella tendonitis
- Rotator cuff tendinosis
- Shin Splints (Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS))
The Zimmer enPuls® uses a “soft shot” pulse that is a clinically proven therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of Shockwaves in medicine.
It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions, in less technical terms it encourages the body to heal itself. These reactions include:-
- Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
- Increased blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cell activation
Physiotherapy London’s Canary Wharf physio clinic (E14), and its Marble Arch physio clinic (W1), are private physiotherapy clinics staffed entirely by teams of physiotherapists who are specialists in musculoskeletal pain and injury. We specialise in treating Back and Neck pain, Sports injuries, Shoulder and Elbow pain, and Hip, Knee and Ankle pain.
