“Back In Action”

Chartered Physiotherapist led Pilates Classes.

An initial session allows us to assess your individual needs and abilities, determining what precautions are required. We aim to discuss important key principles about how specific motor control work and postural re-education which may help to address your individual dysfunction. We recommend and encourage you then to incorporate these key elements into your class work.

Classes run weekly in six-week blocks. Each class lasts for one hour and it costs €90 for the 6-week block. Payment in advance is needed to secure a space on any of our classes. As we keep our numbers small to ensure full supervision, classes do fill up quickly and we advise early booking to avoid disappointment.

SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Carbery Chartered Physiotherapy are delighted to announce the availability of Shockwave Therapy in our clinic. All of our Chartered Physiotherapists have undergone additional training and are experts in pain management and mobility restoration with the use of Shockwave Therapy.

WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?

Shockwave Therapy stimulates and speeds up the healing process allowing your body to repair itself. Research studies have shown approximately 80% success rate once all underlying issues are addressed.

HOW DOES SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORK?

  • Shockwave Therapy is a series of energetic shockwaves applied to the area that needs treatment.
  • A shockwave is a purely mechanical wave, not an electric one. The treatment initiates an inflammation-like condition in the tissue that is being treated.
  • The body responds by increasing the blood circulation and metabolism in the impact area which in turn accelerates the body’s own healing processes.
  • The shockwaves break down injured tissue and calcification

WHAT CAN SHOCKWAVE TREAT?

  • Plantar fasciitis with/without heel spur
  • Calcific rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
  • Proximal Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Myofascial trigger points

WHAT ARE THE BENEFTITS OF SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.

  • No anaesthesia
  • Non invasive
  • No medication
  • No surgery
  • Fast treatment – 20 minutes per session, 3-5 sessions required
  • Fewer complications
  • Virtually painless after treatment
  • Significant clinical benefit often seen 6-8 weeks after treatment
