Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy machine

Focused Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is highly efficient, non-surgical treatment for chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system. It is a genuine and successful alternative to surgical intervention. The PiezoWave machine is the latest system for treating diseases of the tendon attachments such as changes in the soft tissue area of the rotator cuff of the shoulder, tennis or golf elbow, trochantric bursitis, patellar tip syndrome of the knee, achilles tendon and plantar fascia in heel pain.

Advantages of Extracorporeal shock wave therapy:

  • Deep, clearly defined penetration
  • Highly accurate treatment
  • Low risk of haematoma
  • Maximum energy directly in the treatment area
  • Practically no skin irritation

This most effective and successful treatment is now available at our clinic. Please contact us to book an appointment.

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is performed by an experienced and highly qualified MSK physician in our clinic.

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, and other soft tissue conditions. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

 

Ultrasound scan helps to diagnose:

  • Tendon tears, or tendinitis of the rotator cuff in the shoulder, Achilles tendon in the ankle and other tendons throughout the body
  • Muscle tears, masses or fluid collections.ligament sprains or tears.inflammation or fluid (effusions) within the bursae and joints
  • Early changes of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Benign and malignant soft tissue tumors
  • Ganglion cysts
  • Foreign bodies in the soft tissues (such as splinters or glass)

Ultrasound is safe and painless, and produces pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of blood flowing through blood vessels.

How To Make Payment

If you would like to pay for your treatment by cash, and have none with you, there are cash machines next door in Marylebone Station, alternatively if you would prefer card payment we have had to introduce a small additional fee for this of under 1% to cover the cost of card payments made by your bank to us. We hope that you understand the reasons for this new policy. The cost of your treatment is still heavily subsidised by Osteopathic Trusts, we offer very competitive high quality osteopathic treatment.

Medical Insurance

Our practitioners are recognised by a number of Private Health Insurance Providers. While this may ultimately mean that your treatment costs are refunded, it is anticipated that you will pay the appropriate fee when you attend for your appointment, and claim from your Insurer in retrospect. Cash, cheques and credit card payments are accepted.

Receipts can be provided on request.

Client Testimonials

“... I started seeing the osteopath because of problems with my neck and upper back caused by spending long periods of time on the computer at work. The practice staff are friendly and professional and I'm really happy with the treatment I have received - it's been effective and I've been given lots of practical advice on things I can do while working to relieve discomfort in between my check up appointments. RG, London ...”

“... I spent several months unsuccessfully visiting another osteopathic practice trying to alleviate distressing neck pain, tingling and numbness in my elbow and fingers as well as lower back pain that prevented me sleeping at night. Within weeks of attending the clinic I responded to the treatment, which involved applying manipulation techniques to my body rather than being strapped up to a contraption for the whole session, as had been my previous experience. The discomfort and symptoms that I was experiencing has substantially reduced and feel much more comfortable in my body. My therapist is very engaging and I always feel at ease. The reception staff are welcoming and will also give reminder call the day before appointments. MW, London ...”

“... I was suffering terrible neck pain and a colleague told me about the clinic. I called and got an appointment the very next day. I have had three treatments and this along with the exercises I was given, and tips on sitting correctly at my desk I have seen so much improvement and am now pain free. JB ...”

“... I made an appointment at the training clinic as an old sports injury to my ankle was playing up. The student who was looking after me was very thorough in his assessment and made sure I was comfortable and discussed my case with his supervisor before starting treatment. I found this very reassuring. I have booked a follow up appointment, but I already feel some benefit after just one treatment. The consultation and treatment were not at all rushed. I really felt both the trainee and the supervising osteopath were giving me their full attention ...”
