Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy or ESWT is an established and effective treatment for soft-tissue injuries that is clinially proven and recommended by NICE.

3Way Healthcare is a Specialist Extracorporeal ShockWave Therapy (ESWT) Centre offering shockwave treatment for Musculoskeletal and Urological conditions.

The technology we use is from the Market Leading Swiss company STORZ MEDICAL.  All our ESWT machines are manufactured in Switzerland to stringent European and British standards.  Many other clinics use lesser Chinese manufactured ESWT machines.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment which utilises soundwaves transmitted to localised injured tissue to reduce pain, accelerate healing and stimulate cell regeneration.

Some Common Conditions we can treat:

Achilles Tendinopathy

Plantar Fasciitis

Shin Splints

Chronic tendinopathy/chronic pain

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (outer hip)

Patellar tendinopathy (Jumper’s knee)

Low Back Pain

Tennis Elbow & Golfers Elbow

Men’s Sexual Health

Frozen shoulder & Shoulder Pain

Focused Shockwave

Focused shockwaves are sound waves that are gathered (or focused) into deeper regions of the body, approximately 12cm. It is at this point that they reach their maximum energy. Focused shockwaves are used in the treatment of deep trigger points or areas, whereas radial shockwaves transmit outwards and do not reach as deep into the target area.

Radial Shockwave

Radial shockwaves are performed on greater surface areas of application or larger regions of the body. Your therapist carrying out the procedure will decide which method is best for you, depending on your condition. Sometimes it is advisable to use a combination of both for maximum effect.

Extracoporeal Shockwave Therapy to available to treat many conditions, your therapist will be able to discuss this with you.  Please contact us directly to discuss your individual requirements: 0118 969 2299.

The Many Benefits of Shockwave Therapy:

Quick Recovery

Fewer Potential Complications

No Anesthesia

Non Invasive

No Medication

Fast Treatment

Around 20 minutes per session.

Not all of our therapists do all of these treatments, and so if after your initial assessment your therapist feels that it is appropriate, they will arrange your follow up with a relevant specialist physiotherapist.

Client Feedback

Jill worked so well with me and I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her - she was excellent!

Dear 3way, I love 3way Physio! Crawled in today... practically skipped out thanks to Nikki!

Nikki, I have had a brilliant introduction to physiotherapy - found that it really works and will not be afraid of acupuncture. I recommend this practice.

...my very grateful thanks. Whilst I hope I don't have any further problems, if I do, be assured my first port of call will be 3way healthcare.

Jo's treatment has been fantastic, she has been of great help. Her friendly manner and approachability is excellent and I would definitely recommend her to anyone requiring treatment.

I would like to thank 3way healthcare for getting me over my various injuries this year so that I was fit for yesterday's London Marathon! I finished in a time of 3:08, beating my own prediction of 3:10!

Hi Jacky, I just wanted to say a very big thank you for this weekend. I don't think we would have managed it without you, your magic hands, and your bag of magic!

My course of physio at 3way helped restore full mobility to my hip after surgery - I'm back to my former, active self.

Dear Jo, Thank you for being so thoughtful, caring and supportive in helping to get me mobile again. It was your positive attitude that often got me through my 'low' times and I thank you very much.

Dear Kerry, Thank you for making me well again.  I have now been signed off as 100% fit for work. Everyone at 3way was very good to me and I do miss the treatment, but thankfully I don't need it now!

Thanks to Jacky for sorting out my hip and neck.

Thank you so so much for all your help this weekend. Your pool sessions worked a dream!... Meant I wasn't stiff at all!
