How successful is the treatment?
I’ve had my problem for so long now, is it too late to have ESWT?
No. When a condition has persisted for a while, the natural healing process slows down. Shockwave therapy gives the healing process a boost, increasing blood flow to the injured area and causing new cell tissue growth. If in any doubt as to whether shockwave therapy is a suitable treatment option for you, please call the clinic on 07595 564 477 and we will be able to advise.
