I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Friendly, professional service. Tom has been fantastic at sorting out my neck and back issues, providing explanation before, during and after treatment as well as providing after care exercises I can do at home. I have been delighted with my treatment so far. Thank you!

Very nice clinic and in my opinion affordable. I went there because I have office job and suffer from neck/back pain occasionally. Jamie Franchini was extra attentive, reassuring and informative all the way along my first app (since my partner mentioned that I feel a bit nervious about the procedure) and has a very friendly and welcoming personality. He explained everything and made me at ease. Created plan for my particular needs and even sent me additional info with recommended excercises to do for my issues. Had just few visits but deffinately will keep going for the maintenance and further support of overall health. Highly recommending :)

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy uses high-powered sound waves to encourage cells to repair themselves. 

Focused Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy uses high-powered sound waves to encourage cells to repair themselves. Shockwaves have been shown to stimulate bone and tendon healing, reduce inflammation and desensitise nerves.

Shockwave therapy is non-invasive, very safe and highly effective. Research has shown success rates of between 70-80%.

Shockwave therapy has been used for over 10 years. Its increasing popularity is due in part to increased positive medical research and recommendations for its use from NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).

Shockwave Therapy can help with:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Chronic Frozen shoulders
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
  • Biceps Tendinopathy
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Hamstring Pain
  • Patella Tendinopathy
  • Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy
  • Trochanteric Bursitis
  • Sacroiliac pain
  • Tennis elbow

What we offer

At Skelian before we offer Shockwave as a treatment,  we need to see if it is appropriate to your condition. You can make an appointment with one of our trained health care professionals to discuss your health and the problem you need treated. 

We’ll give you a thorough physical exam and once we have the relevant information, the chiropractor or specialist physio will then talk you through the plan to help you achieve your goals. If Shockwave is an appropriate treatment may start during that visit.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

  • 70-80% effective
  • Fast Treatment
  • Reduce Pain
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Improve movement
  • Follow up and after care services available

What to expect

The treatment itself is relatively quick and lasts approximately 5-10 minutes. During treatment you should expect to feel some moderate discomfort, however this can be adjusted to suit you.

At Skelian we use a top-quality machine and have highly trained practitioners to help get the best results from the treatment.  

Included in Shockwave session session:

  • Explanation of your diagnosis/condition
  • Reassessment of the condition (follow up treatments)
  • Explanation of how the treatment works and what to expect

Shockwave Therapy Fees
