Shockwave is a very modern and extremely effective method of treatment for chronic conditions.
The shockwave is delivered through the surface of the skin & initially causes an inflammatory like response to the injured tissues
From the 2nd June 2020 will be starting to see SOME Face to Face consultations, There wil be no 'walk-ins' - appointments and enquires must be made by telephone or email
We are letting our patients know that we are taking all the necessary steps as per Public Health England guidance and our local Health Protection Team to prevent the spread of the virus. This is for your safety. Obviously this is a dynamic situation and and we will keep you up to date as and when further changes occur.
There will be a 3 step process in order to attend a Face-To-Face appointment
1. Virtual Initial Screening Complete (by a Qualified Physiotherapist), including: Health Check, Risks V Benefits - Discussion with Patient - Your Need for Care & Mutual Agreement of Both Parties During the COVID-19 pandemic
2. Consent form and patient green pathway flow chart "Can I Make A Face-To-Face Appointment" sent to patient. Consent form returned & signed electronically, before you can attend your appointment
3. On the day of your appointment, "Can I Make A Face to Face Appointment" COVID-19 pathway must be followed
** We will still be offering Virtual Consultations and if we feel at the time of your initial screening that a virtual consultation is the more appropriate pathway, then we will be asking you to do this route first.**
Clinician and Admin Pathway
1. Staff temperatures and health check questionnaires taken on a day to day basis
2. Appointments will be staggered by 30 minutes, to allow for infection prevention and control and to change the appropriate PPE - we will be following pathway 2 for PPE & Public Health England Guidelines for infection control - see below

Featured in Chapter 8 of "Fighting Back".
"My previous experience with physios had not been great. Now Caroline was to restore my confidence in the whole profession".
I was delighted to receive a book called “Fighting Back” and find myself attributed in the acknowledgement section from author Elizabeth Reilly.
This book is an interesting read from a patient’s perspective. All pain is real and for many people it can be a debilitating part of daily life. Research now suggests that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help someone understand their nature of pain and go about their daily demands of life, (Moseley and Bulter, 2009).
This book definitely takes you through the highs and the lows of Elizabeth’s journey and coping strategies (which many people with chronic pain will be familiar with!). This is an informative read for both therapist and patient’s alike.
