Shockwave Therapy


Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment option for stubborn injuries

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy introduces acoustic waves into the body by means of a hand piece. These waves move deep into your body in outward motion from the point of contact. They create an ideal environment for healing by helping to increase blood flow and aid in the formation of new blood vessels into injured tissues. It also has been shown that application of shockwaves influences the body’s pain regulating mechanisms resulting in local pain relief.

What conditions can shockwave help with?

Shockwave therapy can be used over a majority of the body to treat many chronic and painful conditions, such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder/rotator cuff tendinitis or calcific tendinitis
