Shockwave Therapy and Its Benefits

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy works through the use of targeted shockwaves that help stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Shockwave has been used successfully to treat common chronic type injuries such as plantar fasciitis, bone spurs and tennis elbow among many others.

Shockwaves work through the microtrauma they cause to the body’s tissue. This helps to stimulate the healing response that helps improve the integrity of blood vessels and their ability to deliver nutrients to the affected tissues.

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment but can be painful upon application. The pain involved can be reduced at lower intensities and still be highly effective. Shockwave Therapy is very successful in treating chronic condition type injuries such as:

  • Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Trochanteric Bursitis
  • Chronic Hamstring

This is just a few of the chronic type injuries that are successfully treated with Shockwave.

What Are The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave is a non-invasive alternative to costly surgical procedures that can require extensive recovery periods. It meets a growing need for treatments that can provide fast relief when other forms of therapy have failed.

Shockwave therapy eliminates risks of complications that may occur in many surgical treatments such as infections, additional pain and healing challenges.

The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy can supplement other treatment methods you currently may be using such as icing, medications and exercise to increase the likelihood of achieving lasting relief.

Shockwave provides fast relief of pain and successful long term healing. Most injuries can be treated within 3-5 treatments spread out over a few weeks. Severe conditions may require additional treatments.
