How did it impact your life / sport / physical activity?  

Achilles Tendinitis & Plantar Fasciitis stopped me from undertaking walks, limited exercise I could do, made me use my car more and therefore became more inactive leading to weight gain and stress - I previously used exercise as a means of stress reduction.

What other treatments did you try prior to Shockwave Therapy?

I had tried a variety of treatments before Shockwave Therapy; physio, personal training, foam roller, adapted boots and shoes, insoles, physio exercises at home.

How did you find the Shockwave Therapy treatment?

I found the shockwave therapy really good - not painful, maybe a little uncomfortable at times but very effective.

How many sessions of Shockwave Therapy did you have ?

6

How was it immediately after Shockwave Therapy treatment ?

I felt like my foot had been sorted out.

How long since your last session of Shockwave Therapy?

Feb 2018

How is the condition now and how has it improved your life / sport / physical activity?

My conditions are much improved - I am walking more now although I need to lose weight as this has an impact and causes a flare up sometimes.

Would you recommend Shockwave Therapy to others with this condition or similar conditions?

Absolutely!
