Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy 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. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and 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.

Shockwave Therapy is scientifically proven to help with several musculoskeletal problems including treatment of:

  • Tendinopathies/tendonitis
  • Myofascial Trigger Points
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Bursitis
  • Hallux Rigidus
  • Non-Healing Ulcers
  • Scar Tissue
  • Jumpers Knee
  • Osgood-Schlatter’s
  • Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
  • Non Unions
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Patellar Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spur
  • Shin Splints
