Healing Acoustic Pressure Waves

Shockwave

Shockwave therapy an acoustic pressure wave is transmitted to the body tissue and accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.

Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.

In many instances, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

What are the benefits of Shockwave?

  • Rapid Cell Growth

  • Faster Wound Healing

  • Increased Metabolic Activity

  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

  • Anti-Inflammatory Action

  • Increased Vascular Activity

  • Stimulates Nerve Function

 

​Common Conditions Treated:

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Jumper’s knee

  • Hamstring tendonitis

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Lower back pain

  • Metatarsalgia

  • Hip bursitis

  • Neck pain

  • Calcific tendonitis

  • And more

 

Most patients require three-to-six sessions. There is no downtime for recovery.

There are no shockwave therapy side effects. Treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, and joint pain.

  • Tendonitis

  • Stress fractures

  • Trigger points

  • Calf muscle shortening

  • Periarticular shoulder pain

  • Soft tissue conditions

  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

  • Shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome)

  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
