Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment

This is breakthrough technology based on Lithotripsy (used for many years to treat kidney stones) and is proving excellent at treating long term and persistent soft tissue conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis Elbow and Achilles tendon problems. Using a special applicator to break down scar tissue and calcifications, high energy soundwaves are focused on the injured tissues, inducing a healing response enabling the body to repair itself.

Highest quality equipment

We have invested in the best available equipment for this therapy and use the ‘Storz Masterplus MP 100 Ultra’ in conjunction with NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) approved ASSERT protocols.

What is the benefit of this treatment over surgery?

  • High success rates
  • No anaesthesia
  • Non-invasive
  • Fewer complications
  • Virtually painless
  • No medication required
  • Fast results (usually just 3-4 treatments over 3-4 weeks)

James Woledge talks you through the advantages of shockwave treatment

Clinical Director James Woledge talks you through the advantages of treatment for Plantar Fasciitis ,commonly known as Policeman’s Heel, at Abbeyfields clinic in Bury St Edmunds, showcasing shockwave treatment.

As a result of our investment in specialist equipment and our unique Integrated approach (Podiatric Foot Surgeon, Osteopathy and Physiotherapy) we now see patients from across Cambridge & Newmarket through to Ipswich, Sudbury and Thetford.

“I recently saw James Woledge having suffered with Achilles tendonitis for over one year. I had previously tried various other treatments which hadn’t helped. I had three sessions of Shockwave treatment and within a short period of time I was back to normal. I would highly recommend this treatment but I would say sooner rather than later – don’t leave it as long as I did!”
