Shockwave Therapy in Bordon

Your Pathway to Pain-Free Living

Everything You Need to know about Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy means something different at Back To Active

At Back To Active, we recognise the significant impact that pain can have on your daily routine.

If you suffer from chronic pain, injury or discomfort shockwave therapy can help alleviate your symptoms and get you back to feeling your best.

Our experienced team of healthcare professionals are here to provide you with the best shockwave therapy treatment in Bordon.

The shockwave therapist will take your history in an in-depth consultation, find the cause of the pain and discuss the findings with you.

A gel is then applied to the treatment area to allow the shockwaves to be introduced into the body.

After these preparations, shock waves are applied as the therapy head is moved over the pain region in a circular motion.

Each therapy session takes between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. In general, an average of 3 to 6 treatments are necessary at weekly intervals.

After only 1 to 2 sessions, many patients report complete pain relief or significant pain reduction. The therapy eliminates pain or restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.

Shockwave therapy offers a range of benefits for those suffering from chronic pain or injury, including:

  • Non-invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, shockwave therapy is non-invasive and requires no incisions, needles or anaesthesia.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days after treatment.
  • Effective: Shockwave therapy has been shown to be highly effective in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Safe: Shockwave therapy is a safe and well-tolerated treatment option with minimal side effects.

Shockwave therapy is a versatile treatment that can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Hip pain
  • Chronic pain

Shockwaves are audible high-energy sound waves.

In the medical world, shockwaves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance.

In modern pain therapy, low-energy shockwaves are applied to the painful body regions where they can exert their curative action. Shockwaves can accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation; damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal.

Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this therapy approach.

What Bordon are saying about us

I have recently been to Back to Active Osteopathy at their fabulous new clinic in Bordon which was really well equipped and very spacious. I was suffering with a painful neck and ankle; I saw Richard who immediately put me at ease and carried out an initial assessment followed by a treatment. He was very patient with all my questions and took the time to explain everything to me. I felt an improvement immediately after the first session and he also sent me home with exercises to carry out. I have seen Richard for further sessions he is very knowledgeable, and I have a huge improvement in the mobility in my neck and ankle. I cannot recommend Richard highly enough.
Honestly, if I could give Back to Active and Richard a 10* review, I would. Richard really knows what he is doing, is extremely knowledgeable and super helpful. Do not hesitate to reach out to Back to Active/Richard if you are struggling with an injury, they will sort you out.

I visited Richard after seriously hurting my lower back while moving furniture!!! Having had previous surgical intervention I feared the worst so immediately sought professional advice. Richard was/is superb - he fully diagnosed the issue and reassured me that it wasn't a repeat of previous injuries and with some treatment and some well directed exercises I would make a full recovery. I expected this to be 4-6 weeks but actually played golf a week after!!! I would unreservedly recommend Richard - the offices are perfectly located and the booking system easy. I still cannot believe I was able to recover so quickly! Thank you Richard!

I have recently been having treatment from Richard at BacktoActive Osteopathy for an injury and a few physiological imbalances I’ve been struggling with. After my initial consultation Richard provided me with a few adjustments, a little acupuncture on my hamstring and some work on my shoulder to help alleviate and free up the movement again. I am feeling a noticeable difference in the tension through the hamstring, and my range of motion in the shoulder is greatly improved. He has given me further exercise to incorporate into my workout schedule to ensure I’m making the progress I need. Richard has also started using the shockwave therapy machine to improve the tendinopathy issue I have, and I must say I’ve never experienced anything like it, but I am really pleased and I can’t wait for the next session. I feel like this really is the path forward in my injury recovery. I’ve tried many other treatments over the years, and I am so very impressed with Richard. Working in the sports coaching field, I will be referring my clients to Richard. I have high standards on who I refer them to, and Richard has exceeded my expectations on his treatment for me. A five-star service. The only Osteopath and Sports injury recovery practitioner I trust.

Had restricted movement in my neck and pain in shoulders and upper back. Richard unlocked and freed it up with deep tissue massage and manipulation. The exercises he recommended are helping to keep it all in good working order. My problems had built up over a number of years, but he managed to fix me up in just a few sessions and his fees are very reasonable, no GP referral necessary.
