Hi my name's Jane, new to the group and would like to know if anyone has tried Radial shockwave therapy. I have mild cerebral palsy.

    Heya @Lauren321 and welcome to the community. :)

    I've not actually heard much about radial therapy unfortunately, but we do have our CP section, so I'll move your post over and hopefully someone will be able to offer some support soon. I hope that's ok?

    Hi @Lauren321

    I haven't ever had RST myself. Has this been suggested to you by your GP?

    Ah, I see. Well, it might be something you could discuss with your GP or Physiotherapist (if you have one). Are you experiencing specific pain or is the general CP discomfort?

    Unfortunately I work away for 8 months of the year so don't have regular access to a GP, I have had physio previously but that was pre covid, my toes tend to curl under nd then I will get pain in my foot, then I get spasm in my leg which then eventually stiffens up so I then can't walk
