In November we were excited to add Radial Pressures Waves (RPW) or Shockwave therapy to the list of available treatments we offer at Sportswise and already we are seeing some great results.
It has been particularly successful for a number of cases of plantar fasciitis, which is notoriously difficult to manage. We have also been finding it effective in cases of Achilles tendinopathy, especially the difficult insertional cases where the Achilles attaches to the bone. Additionally, the physios have been using it as an adjunct to treatment for the really tough, tight muscle trigger points that have not responded to acupuncture needling, massage and other soft tissue therapy techniques.
Nick and Maryke can personally vouch for its effectiveness as they have been using it on all their chronic ailments too!
