Shockwave therapy

The InSync team is incredibly proud to offer Shockwave Therapy to the people of Hexham and the Tyne Valley. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive alternative to the traditional routes of surgery, steroid injections and oral medicines.

It treats injuries to muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves quickly and effectively, allowing you to get back to your pre-injury fitness as quickly as possible. Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment and works by delivering pulses of energy direct to the damaged tissue. Blood flow is increased in the area, stimulating your cells to re-generate, heal and decrease your pain.

Following diagnosis of your injury, we’ll assess your physical condition and let you know whether Shockwave therapy will be useful to you. We will only do so if we believe, using our knowledge of the evidence available, that Shockwave therapy will be effective for you.

Our clinicians are proud to be agents and trainers with the specialist Swiss Dolorclast shockwave device, making us a leading provider of this special FDA-approved treatment.

Here are some of the complaints we might treat with Shockwave therapy:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Subacromial pain syndrome
  • Greater trochanteric pain syndrome
  • Patella tip syndrome
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Insertional Achilles tendinopathy
  • Midbody Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Calcifying tendonitis of the shoulder
  • Primary and secondary lymphoedema
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Acute and chronic soft tissue wounds
