Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is one of the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatments for musculoskeletal disorders. The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process.

It reboots the body’s inflammatory process in cases where the chronic inflammation has stagnated, becoming chronic. Through ESWT damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive procedure is a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is an extremely effective treatment used to treat a range of issues that occur in various areas of the body. The technology used to perform Shockwave Therapy allows us to achieve much quicker results when it comes to treating both new and chronic injuries.

We predominantly carry out Shockwave Therapy in our Waterloo Clinic, with our patient base ranging from runners suffering from Plantar Fasciitis to individuals with calcium deposits (Calcific Tendinitis) in the shoulder joint who want to avoid surgery.

Individuals that undergo surgery usually have months of rehabilitation ahead of them, while Shockwave Therapy is an alternative in which results can be seen after the first few sessions.

What our clients say…

3 doctors mis-diagnosed me with RSI (including a private hand ‘expert’)… CBR diagnosed me correctly as having neck issues before I even arrived – just from my description of symptoms… I just hope I remember to go to a Physio first before a doctor when I next get pains in my joints.

Charlie S.

My visit to Bruno are really effective on my back right on the same day. He is a great profesional as well as a really warm person to deal. He make you feel calm and relaxed at the consultation. I have recovered strength on my arm thanks to his treatments. I will definitely recommend anyone to go to his clinic.

Maria A.

Peter was very professional! He identified my problem area, gave me excellent advice and exercise to do. I left feeling very positive, will definitely recommend him to people.

C. Cole

I have been treated by Silvia for a shoulder pain. She is an amazing osteopath, very profesional, knowledgeable and a nice person. Silvia is very easy going and explains things extremely clearly.I have been back a few times since and always had fantastic results. I cant recommend CBR Clinic highly enough. Thank you Silvia for making my shoulder much better!

Natalie H

I have been having treatment at CBR Clinics for over 3 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the best investments in myself I have made. I have had a bad back for a long period which stems from lots of sport and the office job. After seeing Lyndsy Mills my back has recovered and mornings tend to be much easier 🙂 I would recommend to friends, family and work colleagues.

V. Man

Really good support throughout the 3 weeks of physio. Great selection of take-home exercises and advice that helped me recover and get back to playing sport a good week before I thought I’d be able to. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for top quality treatment.

M. Batstone

Bruno & his team are professional, efficient, knowledgeable in a number of different disciplines, treatment was effective and Bruno charming. The clinic’s location is very convenient being directly opposite Waterloo station. Disabled parking is availabe in street behind the clinic.

Patricia P.

I’ve been going to CBR for a few years now and have been treated by three of their staff in that time – all great, especially Bruno. I love the fact you can book online and they’re open late most nights and around on thr weekend too. My current treatment is under Nick who specialises in headaches from which I suffer, not just treating the pain but trying to get me to a position where I don’t have to visit too often. How many osteos do that?
