Examination

Examination

If you haven't already had a diagnosis this is the first stage. Three-point​ analysis happens here: 1) PHYSICAL EXAM 2) ORTHOPAEDIC TESTS 3) CONDITION CASE HISTORY
Imagery

Imagery

When we see a condition that's not healed naturally or with other therapies, it often means there is something that may have been missed. We ensure new imagery is taken when needed so we can give you an accurate prognosis before committing to a treatment plan. If you have had a diagnosis that involved MRI, CT, X-RAY or ULTRASOUND, please bring the images to us at consultation. We feel this accurate diagnosis is a critical factor in our high success rates - After all knowing more information is never a bad thing, right?
Shock Wave

Shock Wave

If you condition looks like it requires Shock Wave Therapy (SWT), it is a treatment for both sports and moderate limb injuries, the clinic can provide this. During Shock Wave Therapy pulses of sound are delivered into the offending area at speed. This drumming causes the treatment area to relax and for blood to flow around them. The nutrient rich lifeblood penetrates​ deeper tendon/muscle pores that are now open thanks to the elimination of scar tissue or calcification. - More Information About SWT - CLICK HERE
Rehab

Rehab

Whether you have chosen Shock Wave Therapy or a more traditional approach, there is a weakness that caused your injury to occur. Or in some cases, a muscle imbalance has been created by you just not moving while the pain was present (don't move it you lose it - think of someone's leg after coming out of a plaster cast). The weakness needs to be addressed to stop injury re-occurring.​
Progress

Progress

Advice and exercises on paper are available everywhere these days. However best results are created with a monitoring programme. As you get better from your injury, we change your activities to use up less time and make you stronger. These one-on-one sessions enable not only further treatment and exercise prescription. Crucially they also allow face time with your injury professional. This extra time means they can answer any concerns & teach you more about staying well, while also monitoring your progress.​
Independence

Independence

There is nothing better than a patient that gets complete independence. Independence or Wellness is not just from pain but also from why they developed a condition in the beginning. Our goal is to let you leave the clinic, after completing a course of therapy, with both the treatment and some knowledge about how to keep this condition away

Want to know if Shock Wave Therapy can help you

Laying the foundation for total health

Once we’ve had the chance a meet you, examine you and present our Report Of Findings, you will be prescribed a bespoke care plan

In some ways, one could say that our care system is similar to house-building. It must start at the foundations and finish at the roof. If you tried to put your walls up before you had solid foundations, the walls would be unstable and may even eventually collapse. These concepts do apply to your body’s healing as well.

London Shock Wave & Sports Injury Clinic care can address many common reasons why people experience acute or chronic pain and other short or long-term health challenges. If something is not right with your body’s foundations, then this needs to be addressed before real optimum health can be realised. 

With your bespoke care plan, your body must go through particular stages of care before healing can begin and excellent health will stabilise.

There are three phases of a care plan that are:

Phase 1: Crisis Care

If you are in pain when you first visit us, our first goal would be to help you relieve that pain as soon as possible. The severity of the underlying pain causing challenge will determine the time it takes to move through this phase. Typically the number of visits in this period is normally at its highest frequency and may require multiple visits each week.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

The goal of the Corrective phase is to remove the cause of your problem and to restore your bodies functioning back to 100%. Care in this phase can range from exercises, further treatment, orthotics, advice... well you get the point. Again, this phase of care is very dependent on how severe the problem is and how long it has been there. The frequency of care may still be multiple visits per week, but perhaps not as frequent as in the relief phase.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Finally, once your body has had the chance to heal, it is important to continue with maintenance or wellness care by attending periodic adjustments or rehab care to avoid further problems in the future. This approach ensures your body is functioning at its optimum and doesn't slip into old habits over the larger length of time often likened to an MOT. Your health goals together with your practitioner’s best advice will determine the frequency of care in this phase.
