Shockwave Therapy for Achilles Tendonitis In Birmingham

Do you suffer from Achilles Tendonitis? Try Shockwave Therapy in Birmingham

Achilles Tendonitis is a common overuse injury which can be caused by exercise such as running. It is typically felt as a dull pain in the back of the legs or heels, although it can become more severe and long-lasting.

For severe cases of Achilles Tendonitis, Shockwave therapy can be a safe and non-intrusive form of therapy. By using guided pulses of energy it can help stimulate your body’s own healing mechanisms.

Unlike other treatments Shockwave therapy heals non-healing tendon problems. Our podiatrist will assess the issue to the root of the cause and using our 3D scanning system can also produce bespoke insoles to get you pain free.

What is the Achilles tendon?

The Achilles tendon is at the back of your foot just above your heel and is used when doing most forms of exercise including running and walking. Tendons transmit force from the muscles to the bone, allowing you to move. The Achilles tendon helps to absorb impact with the ground when you are doing exercise or walking.

Injury through overuse is common and severe forms of tendonitis can cause inflammation, heel pain or aches. If you feel pain in the back of your leg, or an ache when you are running or walking then that could be a sign of Achilles tendonitis.

Does Shockwave therapy hurt?

No although you may feel slight discomfort in your Achilles or back of your legs in the following days. This is normal and goes down by itself. Since it is a non-intrusive procedure there are no marks or scars on your skin.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the severity of your Achilles tendonitis we usually allocate for 3-4 sessions of at least 30 minutes. Your therapist will always explain the procedure in full to ensure you are aware of everything and we can cover and questions you may have.

How does it work?

Shockwave therapy works by using pulses to create ‘micro-injuries’ which then stimulate the body to heal itself naturally. Shockwave therapy can also be used for heel pain or in other parts of the body such as the joints and tendons.
