Achilles Tendonitis

I came to the Shockwave Clinic in April 2014. I had been suffering from Achilles Tendonosis for a full year whilst living in Kenya, Africa. I was treated with PRP injections, had had on going Physiotherapy , religiously did my eccentric loading and remained off all the activities ( including Walking )that I loved.  As my business is in the Fitness and Cooking Field it hugely impacted my Career forcing me to return to the UK for a period.  I am based in Dorset and I found the Dorset shock wave clinic on the internet. I had 5 sessions and although the first treatment was initially uncomfortable there was little pain and no after affects. Mr Fernandez understands the frustrations of not being active and was exceptionally positive. I can now say that, I feel no pain and I am back up and Running after a long year . This is largely due to this treatment and the consultant who performed it. I wish to thank the Clinic for their support and would recommend this treatment greatly.

How it works
