April appeared to be rather quiet but on review, we covered a number of topics, posts, RCTs, and of course, my presentation at the British Shockwave Association weekend.
I'll share that video as soon as it's available (hoping my 'man flu' wasn't too evident), and thanks to those that enquired... the car is all back to normal following the broken window during my talk!
The talk went very well and I think I had more questions and follow up from delegates in this event than any other. It was a great, engaged audience. A lot of the enquiries were about energy requirements to get successful outcomes. To that end here's a link to a video I posted on our Facebook.com/OsteopathicClinic page answering the questions in more detail.
So let's summarise the April posts and comments in case you missed anything:
Lastly, an area of discussion outside the usual remits of ESWT. Check out this post for 3 & 12 month patients: Achilles Pain, Stiffness, and Muscle Power Deficits: Midportion Achilles Tendinopathy Revision 2018
The medical view of Shockwave treatment
I had the pleasure of sitting down with medical practitioner and Shockwave patient, Dr Peter Campbell recently to talk about his experience as a patient and a professional.
Peter had treatment 6 years ago for a persistent Achilles problem, 2 years later for tennis elbow. He talked candidly about the treatment and the outcomes.
A must watch for anyone in practice.
I had the pleasure of providing in-house training at a local clinic, My Physio Croydon last month.
It was a great session and I'd just like to wish Chirag and his really enthusiastic team all the very best.
If you're introducing Shockwave to your practice, or looking to further develop your team, we have a program suited to you. Just drop me an email and we'll take it from there.
Swiss Dolorclast Course
I understand a great course was held in London under the care of Chris Downton with Mr Manog Sood and Mr Jonny Wride last month. It's great to see so many people becoming certified.
Check out the next course in Birmingham this month (schedule).
This is another must for anyone serious about bringing Shockwave to their patients.
