About this event

‘Evening CPD Bites' with Dr James Ferrie!

You’re invited to enjoy drinks and dinner as leading podiatrist Dr James Ferrie provides a practical hands-on information session on the use of shockwave therapy in the treatment of heel and ankle injuries. Heel and ankle pain are common and debilitating conditions that are often frustrating to treat successfully. With the ever-growing amount of information about heel and ankle pain, it is difficult for clinicians to select the best treatment options for their patients. Get a taste of the clinically proven benefits of shockwave therapy with hands-on practical experience. You’ll hear what shockwave therapy has to offer for lower limbs including:

  • Plantar Heel Pain
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Muscular trigger points

James will share his experience on why patients pay for this non-invasive treatment (and pay more than standard consults!) and how to utilise your shockwave device as a revenue generating modality as opposed to a depreciating asset. Plus get a chance to practice a treatment on yourself and/or a peer. All whilst enjoying tasty food and drinks.

Learn about offering your patients more than just steroid injections and physical therapy. Incorporate a new treatment modality AND increase your practice revenue.
