I became a patient after developing an Achilles tendon problem that had failed to heal after 12 months of physiotherapy treatment. I had been unable to run or participate in many sports, even routine walking caused tenderness and pain, along with morning stiffness.

My initial consultation was very clear and comprehensive, the treatment of Shock-wave therapy and the likely outcome was explained along with the time scale for recovery. I had three sessions of treatment which caused mild discomfort during the minutes of treatment, but no lasting problem by the next morning. The swollen area of my Achilles showed improvement within days of the first treatment and this continued after each visit. Six months later I am now pain free and have started normal exercise again.

I am no longer stiff in that area in the mornings and have been able to resume a normal lifestyle. I have been delighted with both the treatment and the way it was carried out.
