Affordable shockwave is available. The best guidelines are to check out the training undertaken and how long shockwave has been used.
Radial shockwave has been in use in mainland Europe for over 30 years and because of its effectiveness, it is now spreading rapidly around the world. The UK has been relatively late in taking this exciting technology on board and even now there are relatively few clinics offering radial shockwave.
We have been offering affordable shockwave at Nicky Snazell’s Pain Relief Clinic since 2007, following an education trip to mainland Europe, including training from an Orthopaedic Consultant who specialises in shockwave treatment at his clinic in Luxembourg.
What is Radial Shockwave?
Radial shockwave applies pressure pulses to the body in varying depths. Our Storz Medical ESWT radial shockwave can be fitted with various applicator heads, which allows us to control depth of treatment and the quality of the pulse for different body tissues.
The head can be rapidly changed to treat a tendon insertion to the bone, the body of the tendon, or through the protected D-Actor technology, treat muscles. The pressure pulses induce an inflammatory response in the injured body tissue, which stimulates the body to react by increasing blood flow to the area and thus promotes more rapid healing.

How do I find a Skilled / Affordable Shockwave Therapist?
Often in life the maxim “You get what you pay for” holds true. However, with radial shockwave this is not necessarily the case, because radial shockwave is still relatively new in the UK, the apparent newness is being used to leverage extremely high charges. But radial shockwave is not new, it has been around for 30 years or more in one form or another. It’s just that the UK has been slow to take it on board.
At Nicky Snazell’s Pain Relief Clinic, our approach has been to seek the best training we could obtain in mainland Europe from Orthopaedic Specialists with many years of experience in shockwave and then make the treatment available here at normal treatment costs.
So look around, ask what training has been undertaken and how long shockwave has been in use at that centre. These are much better guidelines than cost.
