Shockwave Therapy for Achilles Tendonitis in Birmingham
If you suffer from Achilles tendonitis or even just pain in the back of your legs then Shockwave therapy can be of real use to you. Our therapists can assess your feet and legs and offer a suitable, tailored approach to helping you reduce pain.
The Achilles tendon is at the back of your foot just above your heel and is used when doing most forms of exercise including running and walking. Tendons transmit force from the muscles to the bone, allowing you to move. The Achilles tendon helps to absorb impact with the ground when you are doing exercise or walking.

Injury through overuse is common and severe forms of tendonitis can cause inflammation, heel pain or aches. If you feel pain in the back of your leg, or an ache when you are running or walking then that could be a sign of Achilles tendonitis.
Depending on the severity of your Achilles tendonitis we usually allocate for 3-4 sessions of at least 30 minutes. Your therapist will always explain the procedure in full to ensure you are aware of everything and we can cover and questions you may have.
No although you may feel slight discomfort in your Achilles or back of your legs in the following days. This is normal and goes down by itself. Since it is a non-intrusive procedure there are no marks or scars on your skin.
Shockwave therapy works by using pulses to create ‘micro-injuries’ which then stimulate the body to heal itself naturally. Shockwave therapy can also be used for heel pain or in other parts of the body such as the joints and tendons.
