Achilles Tendinopathy Treatment in Finchley

At Compass Health Clinic in Finchley, achilles tendinopathies are a very common issue we come across, due to our specialism in shockwave therapy. It has the potential to be one of the most debilitating conditions as it impacts our ability to stand, walk and move around, leaving us unable to do all the things we love, whether that be exercising, or simply meeting up with our nearest and dearest.

We work with you to work out how and why you started to get this pain, so we can provide advice and treatment that is tailored to you.

Our 3 simples steps to eliminating Achilles tendinopathy - Finchley

Step 1: Diagnosis

Diagnosis is an essential part of recovery from an achilles tendinopathy. By knowing what is happening, we not only know what steps to take, but it can also bring relief once we know it is something that will go away and that moving around will not cause any further damage. 

Step 2: Treatment

Our treatments are completely tailored to the patient in the room. We know that everyone has their own preferences, and therefore we put the patient at the centre of the treatment approach, and check in to make sure you feel comfortable every step of the way. One of the most effective treatment approaches we use is shockwave therapy, particularly for those patients who have had an achilles tendinopathy for more than 3 months. 

Step 3: Education, rehab and advice

Education, rehab and advice is one of our favourite steps, because these are the steps that help ensure that the pain you’re suffering from is unlikely to come back in the future. 

By understanding your story and your day-to-day habits, we are able to create a programme that not only will you keep to, but hopefully enjoy enough that you will take it with your going forward, helping reduce the chances of re-injury in the future.
