Mr Simon Burtt, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, is now offering private patients radial shockwave therapy at the Cobham Clinic. Shockwave therapy can be used to treat chronic tendon inflammations in the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, achilles and sole of the foot.
Radial shockwave therapy is a series of energetic shockwaves applied to the area that needs treatment. A shockwave is a purely mechanical wave, not an electric one. It initiates an inflammation-like condition (pro-flammatory) in the tissue that is being treated. The body responds by increasing the blood circulation and metabolism in the impact area which in turn accelerates the body’s own healing processes. The shockwaves break down the injured tissue and calcifications.
This service is available to patients in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and futher afield.
An inital consultation is required followed by 3 sessions of treatment, usually a week apart and each lasting approximately 15 minutes. The cost for this treatment is a total of £693.00.
