Shockwave Therapy In Southend






Fast and Effective pain relief meets Potent Natural Healing

Some soft tissue injuries are particularly stubborn, and refuse to subside in the face of painkillers or injury rehabilitation. Your options seem to be limited to either steroid injections to reduce inflammation, or surgery to tackle the issue at the source.

If you're at your wits end with a nagging injury but don't want to consider more drastic invasive options, consider shockwave therapy from the Sports Rehab Lab.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Despite the intimidating-sounding name, shockwave therapy (ESWT) is little more than treating soft tissue injuries with localised low-energy soundwaves.

Regardless of whether you are struggling with a sports-related injury such as tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis, a repetitive strain injury or any other kind of musculoskeletal condition, shockwave therapy can be used to provide significant pain relief and promote the body's natural healing process.

Originally designed to treat kidney stones, ESWT's efficacy has been attested to by countless patients over the last 20 years and dozens of scientific studies. Indeed, it has been found to be approximately 90% effective in treating musculoskeletal issues, compared to the 30-70% of steroid injections.




Why should you consider shockwave therapy?

 Potent pain relief

Shockwave therapy gradually overstimulates and ‘turns off' nerve endings in the targeted area for fast and effective pain relief.


Shockwave therapy at our sports injury clinic in Southend is simple, straightforward and non-invasive, with no risk of infection and a very small risk of complications.

 No Downtime

As no medication is involved and the procedure is non-invasive, the downtime for shockwave therapy is very brief compared to surgery or steroid injections.

Frequently asked questions about our shockwave therapy in Southend

When should I consider having shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is considered a second-line treatment. This means that conservative treatments such as injury rehabilitation or painkillers have not provided sufficient pain relief or healing. It should therefore not be your first port of call when you are injured. Of course, this will be discussed during our initial consultation. If we think that shockwave therapy would not be suitable for you, we would be more than happy to recommend alternative treatments.

Should shockwave therapy be used as a standalone treatment?

We highly recommend that you incorporate shockwave therapy into an existing rehabilitation or treatment routine including physical therapy, stretching and rest to promote overall effective recovery.

Does shockwave therapy hurt?

You may find the treatment slightly uncomfortable at first, but this depends on your pain threshold and the area being treated. Your therapist can adjust the energy levels of the shockwaves as the treatment goes on to keep you comfortable.

How long does a shockwave therapy session take?

Each individual shockwave therapy session takes 30 minutes.

Each individual shockwave therapy session takes 30 minutes.
