Crista Cullen, one of Great Britain’s leading female hockey players for the last 10 years, has represented her country at two Olympic Games in Athens and Beijing. She was chosen to represent Team GB at London 2012 and won an Olympic Bronze Medal.
In the lead up to London 2012, Crista had been suffering with pain in her heel and was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis.
Shock Wave Therapy for Pain Management Treatment
Crista underwent the usual SWT treatment course of three treatments over three weeks. The pain management treatment worked and importantly, Crista was able to continue with her training in the run up to the 2012 Olympics.
Crista said: “I’m really pleased that I had the shockwave therapy treatment because it’s made a meaningful difference and I’ve been able to train all the way through the treatment, to win medals at my most recent competitions and to continue my preparations for London 2012. I liked the treatment because once the location of the pain has been precisely identified it can be targeted directly. With an approach that’s so precise, it allows you to make good gains.”
