Can anyone advise as to clinicians in the UK (England) who offer ESWT?

Cheers

Hi, I'm from the UK. Had 2 ESWT's 2 years ago. First at a physio in Chelsea, can't name them for fear of legal reprisal, but they were dreadful and had a foot anatomy text book out whilst they were giving me the treatment !! Second at Citisport in Epsom, guy was called John Reynolds. Much better knowledge of the machine but nothing compared to the Doc's on the site in the US who treat with ESWT all the time. Suggest Epsom maybe a start, I know I really struggled to find anyone in the UK who had an extensive knowledge.

The germans are very knowledgeable on this so you could always fly out there. A couple of treatments seems the norm to see whether it will actually work for you.

ESWT didn't work for me but then again I'm atypical so pf may not be my actual problem.

Good luck

Pete,

Out of curiosity, and professional interest: What fee was charged for this service?
