Yesterday, Gill and I both attended a CPD event held at Norris Health in Cheshire. The event was hosted by VENN Healthcare and run by Paul Hobrough, physiotherapist and author of 'Running Free of Injuries'. We had a really informative, practical and motivational day learning how to run a successful Shockwave (ESWT) Service. The course involved both theoretical and practical elements, including the history of 'Shockwave Therapy', how shockwaves are administered into the body and some basic pathophysiology. We also took part in practicals, in which Gill perfected her technique on how to successfully treat the 7 main areas:
Paul talked in detail about technique and spoke about current thinking and how SWT impacts the treatment protocols for Plantar Fasciopathy, Achilles Tendinopathy, Patella Tendinopathy and High Hamstring Tendinopathy. He also touched on correct positioning, patient aftercare and exercises.
VENN Healthcare consider this stage one course to be prerequisite for safe usage of the radial shockwave machine. Here at Outreach Physio, we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the latest treatments and techniques.
Both Gill and I thoroughly enjoyed the day and cannot thank both Venn and Paul enough for all their positive encouragement and support. We cannot wait to continue with our shockwave service back at our Moreton clinic.
Book in today for Shockwave Therapy......
