Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is now at Blue Sky!

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Extracorporeal Radial shockwave therapy works by delivering high energy acoustic waves to targeted areas of the body. These waves stimulate the body's natural healing response by increasing blood flow, promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation.

Common conditions treated with Shockwave Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot condition characterised by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the toes.


Tendinopathy is a condition characterised by irritation of a tendon, the thick cord that attaches muscle to bone. It commonly occurs due to overuse, repetitive movements or sudden injury. Tendinopathy can affect various parts of the body such as shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee or ankle.

Calcific Tendonitis

Calcific Tendonitis is a condition characterised by the formation of calcium deposits within a tendon, most commonly the rotator cuff tendons in the shoulder. These calcium deposits cause pain, inflammation and limited range of motion in the affected joint.

How many treatments will I need?

NICE guidelines recommend 3 sessions carried out weekly

Does the treatment hurt?

You may feel some discomfort or pain during treatment however settings can be adjusted.

What about after treatment?

Generally there will be immediate pain relief, but there may be some discomfort experienced 2-4 hours after

What should I do if I am in pain after the treatment?

The shockwave will trigger an inflammatory response, for this reason, do not use anti-inflammatory medications. Do not use ice as we want our bodies to trigger the natural healing response. The pain should subside within 24 hours. Use paracetamol if needed as long as you are able to take this medication.
