My experience with Skelian has been overwhelming positive. I have had lower back pain on and off for a good few years but Jamie has been able to assist with making things more comfortable for me since beginning treatment. I can’t thank Jamie enough for giving me the ability to train again without fear of enduring discomfort afterwards. Simply amazing service!!

I was fortunate enough to come across these guys & Brad the physio who helped me I can not recommend enough. After coming back from a long term injury Brad helped me & allowed me to train & compete at my best. Being a professional boxer your body is under a lot of strain but I was able to manage this due to these guys and Brad. 5 stars can’t recommend enough

I was struggling with some lower back pain and sciatica and nothing seemed to be working until I came across this fantastic young man, I work in the trade and everyone kept telling me i just need to change careers to fix my back, but he diagnosed my issues within a session and managed to fix me up in a few regular sessions and gave me some great managing techniques. Highly recommend people with any issues to get in contact, many thanks again for fixing my back pain!

I initially contacted Brad , a physiotherapist, from Cheltenham, after a recommendation, as I had been suffering with problems with my shoulder for a while. I then decided to make an appointment with Brad. I cannot fault his service. He was excellent in diagnosing my frozen shoulder after a thorough examination. He then manipulated my shoulder and muscles around the shoulder. He was very thorough and informative and talked me through everything he was doing and explained everything. He gave me exercises I could do at home. He kept in touch with me after this examination to catch up on my progress. I visited him several times for manipulation and exercises and, happily, my shoulder is now fully functional with no lasting effects. I found Brad to be very friendly, very informative and an excellent Physiotherapist. I would not hesitate to visit him again should I need a Physiotherapist.

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
