Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave?

Using acoustic wave technology, we can break down scar tissue, release healing factors and repair even the longest standing injured tissue. The treatment is quick, non-invasive and comfortable.

Shockwave carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic, and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Shockwaves are characterized by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and nonperiodicity. The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue.

What are some conditions that Shockwave can treat?

Shockwave therapy has been shown to be effective on a wide range of chronic conditions. Here are some examples of conditions where SWT has been shown to effectively treat symptoms and improve function:

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow

  • Wrist/Ankle Pain

  • Neuropathy/Nerve Pain Joint Pain (shoulder, knee, hip)

  • Leg Pain Tendonitis Bursitis
