Clients can park in the Wilsons carpark and we will pay for your parking for the duration of your appointment on arrival at the clinic. No need to take a ticket from the machine.

Disabled carparks are conveniently postioned at the rear of the building for easy access to the clinic. If you have a disability or any special requirement that we should know about, then please let us know at time of booking your appointment.

Shockwave Therapy

WHAT ARE RPW SHOCK WAVES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

Radial shock waves are acoustic waves introduced into the body by means of a transmitter and handpiece. These waves move through the body in outward motion from the point of contact. The point of contact will be moved throughout your treatment to cover the entire pain region. Radial shockwaves are often referred to as radial pressure waves, which is the correct definition in physical terms because it best describes how the waveform moves through the body. When introduced into the tissue, shock waves and pressure waves have effects on a cellular level that are beneficial for healing. Increased blood flow2 and formation of new blood vessels3,4 create an improved environment for tissue repair. It has further been shown that application of shock waves influences the body’s pain regulating mechanisms resulting in local pain relief.

COVID Update    

We are seeing patients for face to face appointments in the clinic. We have strict protocols in place to keep you and our staff as safe as possible.

If you are unsure about coming in, unwell or perhaps waiting for a test result, our physiotherapists can provide a Telehealth appointment with no surcharge. 

The usual surcharge will apply for any face to face appointments.

All Staff at the clinic have been fully vaccinated and we have robust cleaning and infection control procedures in place.

For an appointment with our massage therapist, or to attend a group class, you will need to show your vaccine passport as per regulations.

So how does this Telehealth thing work?

There is a lot your physio is able to assess via a secure webcam meeting – either on Zoom or possibly a different platform. They can advise you on how to deal with an existing or new injury and then send you exercises to do at home. We are not charging a surcharge for this service.
