Shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses high powered sound waves to treat orthopedic conditions.
By using high-powered sound waves to stimulate blood flow to the affected area and break up scar tissue or calcification within tendons and ligaments, your body is abl to continue the healing process resulting in the reversal of inflammation, dissolution of calcium build-up, and stimulation of collagen. The result is improved healing and enhanced functionality with a significant reduction in pain.

How Shockwave Therapy Works
Two things happen when you receive Shockwave Therapy. First, the high-powered sound waves help to break up scar tissue or calcification that has penetrated your tendons and ligaments. Meanwhile, these sound waves also help stimulate blood flow to the affected area, which helps your body fight inflammation, dissolve the calcium build-up that is breaking up quicker, and stimulate collagen…which means relief from pain for you. The treatment intensity may vary depending upon what is being treated, and can be modified to the patient’s tolerance. It is an outpatient treatment that does not require any anesthesia and only requires a few minutes to perform.
