GETTING YOU BACK ON YOUR
GAME ON AND OFF THE FIELD
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY AT WEST 1 PHYSIOTHERAPY AND PILATES
Nearly 30 million people in the UK are living with some degree of chronic pain. Of those, around 8 million are in severe pain. But for many people, that shouldn’t be the case.
As anyone who lives with a permanent or ongoing condition will tell you, living with any degree of pain on a long-term basis is at best frustrating and at worst soul-destroying.
One possible option worth considering is Shockwave Therapy, a non-surgical therapy that uses an acoustic wave to deliver focused energy to painful inflammed tendons and other soft tissues in order to promote regeneration.
A NON-SURGICAL THERAPY
hen chronic pain fails to respond to the conventional treatments available – and there are circumstances when it might not – then Shockwave Therapy is certainly worth considering as a next step.
Although there is still a lack of awareness of Shockwave Therapy among GPs and other generalist medical professionals, there is a good deal of evidence from around the world that it’s an effective option in the treatment of soft tissue and musculoskeletal condition, as well as in spinal cord injuries and vascular and nerve regeneration.
DESIGNED TO TREAT,
PREVENT AND CURE INJURIES
Before you know it, a year has gone by and suddenly you’re in a situation where the pain is chronic and permanent, and you’ll be prepared to undergo just about anything to get rid of it.
Shockwave Therapy can be effective in the treatment of:
Ongoing shoulder pain
Chronic hip pain
Shockwave doesn’t bring guaranteed results, and it’s not appropriate for every condition – but it is worthy of consideration as another non-surgical option curing chronic pain.
