Fracture Healing

Speed up the healing of your fracture or broken bone with our specialist lasers & magnetic energy treatment. We specialise in healing fractures quickly. Whether you are a professional or amateur sportsperson, or a member of the public wanting to get back to normal life as quickly as possible following a bone break, we can help. We see a lot of fractures from the more extreme sports such as motocross, mountain biking, motorsport, horse jumping – as well as treating footballers, road bikers, rugby players and anyone looking for pain relief and a quicker healing process.

What are the benefits of fracture healing treatment?

  • lays down bone allowing the fracture to heal substantially more quickly than with no treatment
  • quick pain relief
  • less muscle wastage meaning a much quicker return to full fitness
  • a quicker return to full strength & mobility.

What type of fractures can you treat?

We can treat any broken bone, but the most common we see are:

  • collarbone (clavicle)
  • shoulder blade (scapula)
  • femur
  • tibia
  • fibula
  • ribs
  • scaphoid
  • spine
  • wrist
  • fingers and thumbs
  • toes
  • pelvis

What sets us apart?

  • Unparalleled expertise.  Simon Barnes (who many will know from his previous base at The StoneHouse Clinic in Corsham) has a deep understanding of the intrinsic mechanisms of the various machine used to help heal fractures.  He uses this knowledge to tailor treatments to suit each unique patient’s needs.  Read more about Simon’s fracture expertise here.
  • Customised treatment plans.  No two fractures are the same, and neither should be the treatment approach. Simon will assess and design a personalised treatment plan for the optimum outcome for your particular fracture.
  • Proven results. The success stories of countless patients speak for themselves.
  • Cost-effective treatments.  We believe this treatment shouldn’t exclusively be for ultra wealthy sports teams, and we try to accommodate all budgets and make the treatments as cost-effective and value for money as possible.

How do you heal fractures?

We use a variety of specialised electrotherapy equipment to heal recent fractures, including powerful LASERs, LIPUS (low-intensity pulsed ultrasound), and various types of magnetic energy. The choice of equipment will be tailored to meet your individual needs specific to your fracture and your budget.  Read more about LASER here

All the equipment works in a similar way, by stimulating cellular activity at the fracture site. This helps the body to heal itself more quickly, by laying down new bone tissue at a quicker rate than it would do naturally. The equipment will also help heal any soft tissue damage around the fracture site quickly, further helping with getting you back to normal function.

Can you work through a cast?

Yes, we have treatment options that work through a cast.

I have pins in my body, can I still have treatment?

Yes, all treatments can be used with pins.

Are there any instances where I cannot receive treatment?

If you have a pacemaker, any other electrical implanted device, or are pregnant some of our treatments will not be appropriate but please contact us in advance so we can discuss this with you.

How many treatments will I need?

Minor collarbone & rib breaks can usually be treated very quickly, usually with just 1 or 2 sessions.  More complex breaks involving larger bones, and non-union fractures of a few months old will need a few treatment sessions to fully heal.

Whatever the length of treatment, your fracture will heal significantly quicker, substantially reducing the total recovery time.  If you are travelling a distance to see us, we can book you in for more than 1 session in a day in order to gain the most benefit from the travel time.

Will you need copies of x-rays and scans?

Any x-rays or scans you have will be extremely helpful (even if taken on a camera phone) so that we can be sure of the exact nature and location of the break. This will help to direct treatment and give the best possible chance of a quick result. If you are not able to provide x-rays then please don’t worry we are still able to locate and treat the fracture, even if it is in a cast.

How do I book?

You will need to request a fracture appointment with Simon Barnes, who specialises in fracture healing treatment and has successfully treated hundreds of fractures over many years.  You can call us on  01249 712288, email us at or book online.  (If you are having difficulty finding a session online please get in touch and we will help you.)  Appointments are available at times to suit you, including early mornings, evenings (and weekends by prior arrangement).

A first assessment and treatment for 1 hour costs £100. Follow up treatments, if needed, will vary depending on the plan agreed.  If you are travelling from a distance, we can do more than 1 treatment in a day or consecutive days if you want to stay nearby overnight.  If this applies, please get in touch so we can ensure all the sessions are available and booked in.
