Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive alternative for those suffering from many fascia, muscle, tendon, bone and joint disorders. SWT sends acoustic shock waves into bone and soft tissue, in effect, reinjuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. This controlled reinjuring of tissue allow the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting revascularization leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity level.

Specifically, the therapy is effective for three reasons:

  • The Shockwaves stimulate a metabolic reaction in the affected tissue causing stress fibers to develop and/or change in their permeability.
  • They generate cavitation bubbles that break down calcific deposits.
  • They induce an analgesic reaction mechanism which blocks pain messages.


How Successful is Shockwave Therapy?

After only 3 sessions, over 95% of patients report painlessness or significant pain reduction.
Anyone looking for a safe, proven, effective, non-surgical alternative for the treatment of tendon, muscle, ligament, capsular, and bony injuries.  Both athletes and non-athletes can benefit from treatment.
Clinical research indicates that 3-4 sessions, on average, are required for maximum effectiveness, at one week intervals. Session generally take 10-15 mins, depending on the condition being treated.
