Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment
This breakthrough technology is fast becoming the best non-invasive option when all else has failed. If you have been struggling with the following conditions and you’ve tried everything else or just want to get better faster, shockwave therapy is safe, effective and approved by NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) for the following conditions:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Tennis/golfer’s elbow
- Rotator cuff tendinopathy and calcific tendinitis of the shoulder
- Hip bursitis/tendinopathy
With studies showing this treatment can also help with:
- Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
- Chronic muscle related pain
How does it work?
A hand-held device is moved over a conductive gel on the skin to send mechanical pressure pulses, known as shockwaves, to painful areas of the body.
It kickstarts a healing reaction that has otherwise stalled and offers pain relief so that you can get back to exercising, which will ultimately make your tendon resilient to future demands.
What are the benefits?
- High success rates
- Fast results (usually 3-5 treatments over 3-5 weeks)
- Minimal after care
- Safe (A recent systematic review looking at the efficacy and safety of shockwave therapy showed NO adverse events in any of the 106 studies).
- Fewer complications
- No medication required
- Minimal after care
- Faster return to activities
Outcomes are improved if underlying biomechanical / strength issues are also assessed and corrected so this treatment is offered as part of a holistic osteopathy package with Kate.

The RsScan is a foot plate and computer software system that allows us to examine the pressure, weight distribution and biomechanics of the foot. It will assist in finding out if foot, ankle, knee, hip and low back pain originate from problems in the foot. As well as helping us target correct treatment and exercise strategies it also allows for the production of fully customised orthotics (insoles). It will also help in selecting "off the shelf" orthotics too.
The orthotics that we use in combination with the gait scan are highly advanced and can be specifically shaped for individual sports and activities to help achieve the best possible performance.
