Here is a video of radial shock wave therapy performed in clinic.
This is an incredible treatment often performed by physiotherapists & orthopaedic specialists to treat conditions such as frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and tennis or golf elbow.
This treatment breaks up any calcium deposits or bony spurs that create inflammation in the surrounding tissue, causing chronic pain and poor mobility. By creating a micro trauma using acoustic waves, the body is stimulated to naturally heal itself - giving the patient improvement in 1-5 treatments that are performed weekly.
This is a10-15 minute treatment in clinic, mild discomfort can be felt during the process however we find most patients notice immediate relief after the treatment..
"We needed a doctor on a public holiday and were lucky this one was open at the time. It was only supposed to be a one off appointment but Dr Ramesh and the lovely receptionist have always made us feel so welcomed that we now call this our family gp!
We never wait long compared to other clinics, never feel rushed out with the incorrect diagnosis and there are always appointments available to suit my needs. We definitely feel like valued patients after every visit. Highly recommend if you need a new gp!"
