ESWT (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy) is an exciting new non-invasive procedure for treatment of plantar fasciitis and tendon problems.
The sound waves promoted during the treatment stimulate healing for many physical disorders including plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis.
The technology has been approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), Spire Clinical Governance and the Medical Advisory Committee.
What's the advantage of ESWT?
All of our specialists are of the highest standard and benefit from working in our modern, well-equipped hospitals.
Our specialists often hold NHS posts and delivering expertise in complex sub-speciality surgeries.
You will have a formal consultation with a healthcare professional. During this time you will be able to explain your medical history, symptoms and raise any concerns that you might have.
We will also discuss with you whether any further diagnostic tests, such as scans or blood tests, are needed. Any additional costs will be discussed before further tests are carried out.
We've tried to make your experience with us as easy and relaxed as possible.

ESWT is carried out in an outpatient’s environment and requires no injections, medication or surgery; therefore you can expect to be home the same day. Patients often require one to three sessions at short intervals. However your consultant will advise you individually as per your case.
Most patients find considerable relief from shoulder pain, heel pain or achilles tendon in just eight to ten days following the first application.
We are committed to delivering excellent individual care and customer service across our network of hospitals, clinics and specialist care centres around the UK. Our dedicated and highly trained team aim to achieve consistently excellent results. For us it's more than just treating patients, it's about looking after people.
