Shockwave Therapy (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy - ESWT)

Shockwave Therapy is a clinically effective treatment which uses shockwaves to pass through the skin to the injured part of the body. Radial shockwave therapy is particularly effective in treating tendon issues and plantar fasciitis. Shockwave Therapy is only available at our Balerno clinic.

Shockwave Therapy is a clinically effective treatment which uses shockwaves to pass through the skin to the injured part of the body. These mechanical, audible, low energy soundwaves speed up the body’s healing process and break down scar tissue. The use of Shockwave¬† therapy is supported by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Effectiveness) to treat upper limb and lower limb conditions.¬† It is particularly effective in treating tendon issues of the achilles, patella, glutes, hamstrings, tennis elbow and rotator cuff as well as plantar fasciitis and hip bursitis, especially where other conservative treatments have not completely resolved the problem. Treatments are given as a package of 3 initial treatments, one to two weeks apart, with further treatments added if required. ESWT is approved by major insurers and pre-authorisation is required prior to commencing treatment.

I needed an activity that challenged me. I've felt since training at Prime Sports studio that I have been managed very carefully and consistently to be safe. I feel the ethos of the team and people attending are fantastic, really friendly and I always feel welcome.

My Yoga class was amazing. The instructor was just lovely, and adapted the class to make it suitable for everyone.

Such understanding staff. Really know their stuff and their pilates classes are really good fun.
Shockwave therapy almost cured my plantar fasciitis with only one treatment.

From the friendly welcome, to the comprehensive exercise plans, the end to end service was faultless, exceeding our expectations in every way.
