Pulsed Shockwave

We are pleased to announce that we have just taken delivery of our new Master Touch Pulsed Shockwave machine, by EMS Swiss Dolorclast.

Well researched beneficial effect from shockwave treatment has been seen with conditions such as:

Plantar Fasciitis

Tennis/Golfers Elbow

Achilles tendinopathy

Shoulder rotator cuff injury and Frozen shoulder

& many more.

For those with private medical insurance, we have accreditation from AXA & Bupa, to fund this treatment, and we are awaiting accreditation from other providers including Vitality and Aviva. Options for self funding can also be explained by contacting the practice or your physiotherapist if you are in current treatment.

For further information please contact the practice and one of our physiotherapists will be more than happy to discuss the benefits, injuries that can be treated and any other questions you may have.

This does not replace other very beneficial treatments offered at the practice, just gives us another potential tool to help our patients return to improved function.


Dearest Customers and Friends

We hope you are all keeping well during this very difficult time.

Following guidance from our professional governing body and Public Health England, we are pleased to say that we remain open. 

Please contact the practice if you require treatment and one of the reception team will guide you through the current booking process.  This is to check general health and to ensure that face to face treatment is safe & appropriate.  Alternatively we can offer a comprehensive virtual consultation with treatment advice.

To reassure our patients, the Physiotherapists will be wearing appropriate PPE to keep everyone safe. The practice is thoroughly cleaned at the start and end of each day and we have implemented a frequent cleaning programme throughout the day.  Treatment rooms are cleaned between each patient as well.  Alcohol hand sanitiser gel is provided in all patient areas.

To help support us with keeping the practice a safe environment, we would ask that you only arrive 5-10 mins prior to your appointment time. If you require someone to bring you to the practice we would ask that they remain in their car for the duration of your treatment.  If you would rather remain in the car on arrival then please phone reception and inform us that you have arrived. Your physiotherapist will call you in when ready for your appointment.  Our waiting area has reduced seating to maintain social distancing.

Please continue to follow the public health advice and especially social distancing guidance.
