What Is Shockwave Treatment?
Shockwave treatment can be a great relief for chronic pain sufferers. Using patented technology, energy is pulsed into the body to encourage natural metabolic and circulatory reactions. This treatment is excellent at providing relief to old injuries and problem areas.
Depending on the area treated, shockwave therapy (ESWT) provides both short and long term benefits. Our health professional will administer short bursts of kinetic energy to the affected area. When energy is initially pulsed into the problem zone, pain is dispersed in the short term. Over the course of a patient’s treatment schedule, blood flow and natural regeneration will increase– often improving or outright healing the pain and damage.
How Shockwave Treatment Can Help
Shockwave treatment has proven to be effective at treating the following conditions:
- Chronic Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon)
- Chronic Tendinosis (calcification of the tendon)
- Tendon Tears / Partial Tears
- Elbow Pain / Tricep Pain
- Shoulder Pain / Rotator Cuff
- Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Pain
Is It Right For Me?
Our highly trained experts will assess your needs and determine if shockwave therapy is right for you. The treatment is most often suggested to those that have tried all other alternatives with no success. Chronic injuries are prime targets for shockwave therapy, especially damage to tissue that connects to bone. Shockwave therapy has minimal side effects, causes no allergies and requires no medication. It’s also one of the best alternatives to surgery, so if you’ve been experiencing chronic pain, try 3 – 5 shockwave treatments before making your decision to go under the knife.
