This one day course is open to Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Podiatrists, Sports Therapists & G.P’s and aims to review the effectiveness and risk factors of Shockwave Therapy as an evidence-based application for ongoing and chronic tendinopathies.

Shockwave therapy is an acoustic wave that passes through the body and initiates a pro- inflammatory response in the treated tissues with minimal side effects. It is emerging as a safe treatment option for soft tissue injuries with an improvement rate of 60 – 80 % in chronic conditions that have been difficult to manage.

This course is for Health Care Practitioners who are looking into the Shockwave Technology or for Practices that have just bought a Storz Medical Shockwave Device.

Main areas of chronic tendinopathies to be covered include (but not limited to) : Plantar Heel Pain, Achilles, Great Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Shoulder Calcific, along with the latest evidence on shockwave mechanisms and effectiveness. The day is split between Theory and practical elements to ensure practival experience is gained with the device and to explore this revolutionary treatment that has helped clinics develop effective programs for their patients. No Prior experience in shockwave therapy is necessary for this course.
