Osteopath Helen How & Shockwave Therapy
Helen’s interest in non-traditional forms of osteopathy and rehabilitation therapies, meant that she was one of the first osteopaths in Scotland to offer Shockwave Therapy as an adjunct to her osteopathic treatments.
As an Osteopath Helen studied hands-on skills including Strain and Counterstrain, Muscle Energy technique, Myofascial and Trigger point release.
An early adopter of Electrotherapy and Vibrotherapy, seven years ago Helen was introduced and trained in the use of Shockwave Therapy and evidence based quality rehabilitation techniques and exercises by the Physiotherapist Cliff Eaton.
As a result of her interest and continued training in Focused Shockwaves and Electromagnetic Therapy, Helen was invited to join a team of specialist Shockwave Tutors who were trained by Storz Medical Expert Tutors in Switzerland.
Now a member of the Vennhealthcare Shockwaves Educators for the UK Helen provides a comprehensive educational and treatment program using Shockwaves as part of her osteopathic treatments. This enables people from all walks of life to benefit from osteopathic and rehabilitation treatments which had hitherto been the preserve of elite sportsmen and sports woman.
The cutting edge technological approach of both Focus and Radial Shockwave treatment, coupled with her gentle patient-centred approach to diagnosis and treatment ensures that osteopathic treatment at the How Clinic Edinburgh is suitable for a wide-range of conditions including; back pain, neck pain, sports injury, arthritis and rheumatism and repetitive strain injury.
