Shockwave therapy. For the relief of tendon pain in Essex & East London

Shockwave therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment used to help heal soft tissues and reduce pain associated with soft tissue injuries.

This completely safe practice can sometimes be an alternative to surgery or steroid injection therapy treatment, effectively treating injuries such as plantar fasciitis and tendon conditions, with positive results typically seen in around 3-4 sessions.


Here at The Lewin Sports Injury Clinic, we work with clients from a range of backgrounds, from professional athletes to those who have been injured doing their regular workouts or playing club level sport.

How does shockwave therapy work?

Shockwave therapy works by stimulating the metabolic reactions in your soft tissues, encouraging the healing process, often with a high rate of success. During your session, the shockwave therapy treatment head is then applied directly onto the area of pain, with the shockwaves provoking your body to increase blood circulation and trigger stem cell activation and enzyme production. This process can often instantly promote healing and pain relief, with improvements expected in around 3-4 sessions.


There is no sedation or anaesthetic needed during the therapy treatment and although it can be uncomfortable it is tolerated by patients very well.
