NON-SURGICAL SOLUTIONS FOR CONTINUOUS PROBLEMS
Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a revolutionary treatment that delivers sound waves to affected areas and aids recovery. Due to this, Shockwave Therapy is non-surgical and offers a gentle solution to aggravating and persistent issues. Deluxe Skin is proud to offer this latest rehabilitation technology. Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to help and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). This non-surgical Shockwave treatment is also recognised by top orthopaedic hospitals and used by high profile professional sports bodies such as the English Institute of Sport, International Athletics Association, and many Premier League football clubs. Many people turn to Shockwave Therapy for back pain, tendonitis and many other painful conditions.
HOW SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORKS
Whether your injury, pain or chronic condition has been caused by exercise, pregnancy, ageing or accidents, musculoskeletal disorders and soft tissue injuries can be debilitating. Many people believe that surgery is the only answer for their health issues but are worried about taking such a risky step. This results in their pain or condition potentially worsening as there is no relief.
At Deluxe Skin we take a non-surgical route, which allows for speedy recovery. SHOCKWAVE THERAPY (ESWT) involves passing short, intense sound waves into affected tissues, which increases blood flow, relieves pain, and stimulates repair and regeneration. The Shockwave treatment puts the cells into repair mode and allows your body to restart its own accelerated healing process without the need for invasive surgery or drugs.
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY PROVIDES EFFECTIVE RESULTS BY:
- Stimulating microcirculation (blood, lymphatic releasing substance P, responsible for pain modulation)
- Releasing nitric oxide, which increases cell metabolism and neoangenesis and has an anti-inflammatory effect, stimulating the body’s own cells to help recovery
- Shockwave Therapy can also break down calcium deposits and release myofascial trigger points (myogeloses)
There are two types of Shockwaves – Focused (ESWT) and radial (RSWT). They Shockwaves differ in a number of ways, the energy and energy density of each wave as well as the penetration depths into the tissue are different. Radial shockwaves are suited for conditions nearer the surface and for deeper target areas the focused shockwave therapy is more effective. Many patients have reported excellent results using the focused shockwave therapy for back pain for example.
CONDITIONS TREATED BY SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Common complaints are as follows but are not limited to:
- Achilles tendon and heel pain – Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur)
- Knee and shin pain – Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s / runners Knee), Tibial edge syndrome (shin splints)
- Elbow and arm pain – Forearm muscles, Epicondylitis (tennis or golfer elbow)
- Shoulder and neck pain – Periarticular shoulder pain, Chronic neck and shoulder pain, Tendinosis Calcarea (calcific tendinitis)
- Back pain – Lumbalgia (lumbago), Dorsalgia (chronic back pain)
- Pseudarthrosis – Non healing bones
- Men’s Health – Erectile Dysfunction, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS), Peyronie’s Disease (Penile Curvature)
A complete non-binding consultation is required to determine the extent and frequency of treatments.
FOCUSED SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Focused shockwave is a superior and more effective treatment for:
- Knee & Joint arthritis
- Bone and Stress Fractures
- Shin Splints
- Osteitis Pubis -Groin Pain
- Insertional Achilles Pain
- Wound Healing
- For conditions or patients who can’t tolerate radial shockwave and find it too painful.

Summary of Your Treatment
Why do shockwaves have so many programs?
For two reasons. Shockwave works at the cellular level and triggers reactions, such as stimulating your cells to help the body heal itself. Second, shockwave therapy has a common term for several types of treatments – focused shockwave, radial pressure waves and vibration therapy. These seem almost the same but slightly different, which means that shockwave therapy can treat all sorts of conditions.
Non-surgical solutions to persistent problem
Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive technology that delivers sound waves to afflicted areas of the body and aids recovery. Shockwave has become widely accepted in clinical practice for the treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries.Whether your injury, pain or chronic condition has been caused by the wear and tear of daily activities, exercise, pregnancy, ageing or accidents, musculoskeletal disorders and soft tissue injuries can be debilitating. Many people think that surgery is the only answer but are worried about taking such a risky step. At Deluxe Skin we take a low-impact, non-surgical route, which allows for speedy recovery.
Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven, recognised by the top orthopaedic hospitals and used by high profile professional sports bodies.
What are shockwaves?
Shock waves are high-energy, audible sound waves which are transmitted to the affected area to accelerate healing by increasing blood flow, putting cells into repair mode. Shockwave has an analgesic effect and stimulates repair and regeneration.
Radial Shockwave v’s Focused Shockwave Therapy
Shockwaves can be either focused or radial. Focused shock waves are used in the treatment of deeper areas approx. 5cm. Radial shockwaves target conditions nearer the surface of the body. Your therapist will decide the best for you depending on your condition.
Is Shockwave Therapy ESWT safe?
Yes. It has NICE guidance for a large number of indications. Shockwave Therapy performed by qualified therapists is a largely risk-free and side-effect-free method of treating musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain.
Is Shockwave painful?
Focused Shockwave is not painful at all. You should feel that something is happening but it is more of a sensation. Radial Shockwave you may feel slight discomfort to begin with. However, the treatment is delivered with a low amount of energy at first, which is increased as you get used to it. Shockwave Therapy creates an analgesic effect, many patients report an immediate relief following shockwave therapy. If you experience pain after treatment you may use ordinary prescription-free pain killers. Do not use anti-inflammatory medication or apply ice on the treated area as both may interfere with the body’s self-healing process.
What conditions can be treated?
Achilles tendon and heel – Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur)
Knee and shin – Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee), Tibial edge syndrome (shin splints)
Elbow and Arm – Forearm muscles, Epicondylitis (tennis or golfer elbow)
Shoulder and Neck – Periarticular shoulder pain, Chronic neck and shoulder pain, Tendinosis Calcarea (calcific tendinitis)

How successful is the treatment?
It depends on the condition. Statistics show over 90 percent of patients experience a reduction in their pain. The overall success rates for all indications ranges between 60% to 80% depending on the conditions treated.
Can Shockwave treat old/persistent injuries, or is it only for new problems?
