I became a patient of Mr Sood in January 2012 after developing an Achilles tendon problem that had failed to heal after 12 months of physiotherapy treatment. I had been unable to run or participate in many sports, even routine walking caused tenderness and pain, along with morning stiffness.
My initial consultation with Mr Sood was very clear, he explained the treatment of Shock-wave therapy and the likely outcome along with the time scale for recovery. I had three sessions of treatment which caused mild discomfort during the minutes of treatment, but no lasting problem by the next morning. The swollen area of my Achilles showed improvement within days of the first treatment and this continued after each visit. Six months later I am now pain free and have started normal exercise again. There is still a small amount of residual “knotty” tissue but this is continuing to improve even after completion of treatment.
I am no longer stiff in that area in the mornings and have been able to resume a normal lifestyle. I have been delighted with both the treatment and the way Mr Sood carried it out.
