Exciting new Shockwave treatment!
We are pleased to now offer Shockwave Therapy as a new treatment here at Camberley Physiotherapy. Shockwave therapy is used to treat many chronic musculoskeletal conditions including:
Shoulder tendon problems
Tennis and golfers elbow
Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (trochanteric bursitis)
Achilles tendon problems
Myofascial trigger points plus many other chronic conditions
How does it work?
Radial shockwaves are introduced into the body by means of an applicator and cover the entire painful area. The pathological association between pain, muscle tone and vascular tone is broken as a result of shockwave therapy and the strong stimuli it produces, thus enabling natural movement patterns to be remembered. This triggers a more effective healing response.
Typically 3 treatments are required
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects include
- petechial (red dots).
These should abate after 5-10 days
We are charging £60 per treatment for this new and highly effective intervention. As a special offer; 3 treatments can be purchased for £170.
Please phone or email for any further information

Shoulder problems are extremely common and we see a lot at Camberley Physiotherapy. The shoulder is a complex joint actually comprising of 4 separate "joints". Problems can be frequently linked to your age. Younger or sporty people can often pinch tendons in the shoulder due to overuse or muscle imbalances that have an impact on the movement in the arm. A sportsperson who uses the shoulder a lot can develop pain due to restrictions of joints further down "the chain" for example a stiff upper back or even hip. Shoulder pain typically refers down the upper arm but rarely into the hand, localised pain in the top of the collar bone can often mean damage to the joint where the collar bone attaches to the shoulder blade. Another problem that can affect the young is dislocation. This really needs to be managed appropriately because shoulders coming "out" can cause joint laxity and recurrent dislocations. Clicks or clunks in a sporty shoulder can mean a torn or damaged labrum- the tissue round the ring of the shoulder socket.
Non Specific Back Pain
Low Back Pain
Back pain is a very debilitating condition affecting one third of the adult population at any one time. Back pain is rarely serious and usually triggered by posture or the way we move. It is called "Non-specific" when there is no identifiable cause. The pain is typically in the back or buttocks but can refer down the legs. Pain that goes down the legs isn't always sciatica; it can be coming from other structures in the back.
Although it is very unpleasant and can be frightening, the best advice is to keep as active as possible, try simple pain relief such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Many people find heat helps but you can try cold packs as well. Physiotherapists are ideally suited to helping people deal with back pain, we can assess you to rule out anything that needs further investigation. We can also give you advice and exercises and people often find some manual therapy helps.
Remember, keep as active as you can and this will help you recover quicker!
