Shockwave Therapy

For Treating Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinopathy

Using Shockwave Therapy to Solve Heel Pain and Achilles Pain


What Is Shockwave Therapy and How Can It Help Me?

Here at Eclipse Foot Clinic, we are always trying to improve the results that we get when treating our patients. Never is this more important than for those cases of heel pain and Achilles pain. Often, these have been going on for months, sometimes YEARS! Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has been used for many years in the treatment of these chronic conditions, showing an excellent response rate in clinical research.


Why should you book your Shockwave Treatment with us??

We’ve invested in literally the BEST shockwave machine in the world! The EMS Master Touch shockwave machine is what has been used in nearly ALL of the high-level studies into the use of Shockwave Therapy for plantar fasciitis and other condtions! We want to give you the best outcome, so we only use world class equipment!


How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwave Therapy is delivered using a machine that generates low-energy soundwaves through your skin to the site of the injury. It has been extensively researched and is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. It has been shown to reduce pain levels and accelerate healing times. It does this by:

  • Increasing blood flow to the surrounding tissues
  • Triggering healing processes caused by Stem Cells
  • Reduces the action of certain nerve fibres, thus lowering pain

What Can Be Treated?

There is evidence to support Shockwave Therapy in the treatment of:

  • Heel Pain (plantar fasciitis)
  • Achilles Tendon Injuries
  • Shin Pain
  • Stress Fractures
  • Mortons Neuroma
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osgood Schlatters
  • Delayed Bone Healing

What to Expect



How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The most recent research points to how long you’ve had your injury for as to how many sessions may be required. If for example, you’ve had pain for between 6 weeks and 3 months, typically 3 sessions are required. For those with pain over 6 months, 6+ sessions are sometimes needed.

Our Specialist Podiatrist will assess your response after each session to determine how many more treatments may be needed. Treatments are spaced 1 week apart, as Shockwave Therapy has a cumulative effect.


You will need to book a Biomechanics Assessment before commencing shockwave therapy, as we have to assess you fully to ensure it is the correct treatment for your foot/leg problem.
