Shockwave Therapy Halifax

Shockwave Therapy Halifax

Great for tendons

Shockwave therapy stimulates skeletal muscle tissue regeneration and accelerates the repair processes. It is used to provide fast pain relief and increased mobility.

The machines pass short, intense energy sound waves, travelling faster than the speed of sound, into affected tissues. This causes microtrauma, increases blood flow and stimulates an acute inflammatory response, which aids the healing process.

Shockwave therapy has both NICE guidance and FDA approval for a large number of indications. All our physios are trained to use it, so treatment is largely risk and side-effect-free, making it a safe treatment choice for musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain.


Benefits of shockwave therapy:

  • Fast recovery
  • Fewer potential complications
  • No anaesthesia
  • Non-invasive
  • No medication
  • Fast treatment: 20 minutes per session
  • Significant clinical benefit: often seen 6 to 8 weeks after treatment

Common uses:

  • Jumper’s knee
  • Painful shoulder
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • Heel spur
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Insertional pain
  • Chronic tendinopathy/chronic pain
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Calcifications
  • Hip pain
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Myofascial Pain Syndromes
  • Musculoskeletal conditions 
  • Calcific tendonitis
  • Hamstring tendinopathy

Patients require a minimum of six sessions on average.

An amazing experience, the customer service from initial phone call to book, right through to consultation and treatment was exceptional. The level of professionalism is outstanding with such attention to detail in understanding my issue and finding resolution through to the treatment itself. I would highly recommend Back to Fitness for anyone

I’ve been a client at Back to Fitness for many years. Charlotte has helped me through a lifetime of back and neck problems as a result of car and skiing mishaps. I thought I’d never trust anyone else with my body BUT I can 100% recommend both McKenzie and Freya. Both amazing physiotherapists with a lovely manner - they really know what they are doing. Back to Fitness really is the best all round physio and sports health practice and now they have 3 top notch physios. 100% recommend. Rupinder

I would like to say thank you on behalf of my dad, Martyn Widdop. He's finally had a diagnosis which without you would have taken a lot longer with more distress. Thank you Nicky

I had been having problems with my knee, causing me pain at any given time, after sitting down, walking the dogs, moving / lift boxes, etc. It would talk to me and tell me to rest! Decided i needed to get it checked out. found back to fitness on a local chit chat site, read their reviews and booked an appointment and so glad i did. Freya was fantastic, talked about the knee, checked my posture, strength, then had a physical examination, prodding, pushing, pulling, etc. Told me that it was a patellofemoral issue (kneecap area) and what we were going to do, both now and in the future. I had a laser treatment, followed by strapping the knee to support and a deep tissue thigh massage. After thanking Freya and leaving the appointment, I almost immediately received the exercise plan that we had discussed on e-mail. this was accompanied by a link to a video on how i can strap the knee myself (if necessary) Over the weekend my knee has not spoken to me and told me to rest, which was great. The strapping around the knee has worked wonders. In fact, i have felt the massage much more than the knee pain ha ha Everything from booking an appointment, through to now was absolutely painless (apart from the massage!) and I would highly recommend Back To Fitness Physio to anyone who has any pain / physio issues, 100%.

Charlotte is extremely knowledgeable and understood what I was trying to explain. She gave me information I had never received before on how to improve my shoulder/back pain. I only wish I had gone to her years ago. Loaded with information, techniques and exercises I feel sure I can improve my posture and pain problems.
