Shockwave Therapy is an innovative technology that uses high-energy sound waves to treat chronic, painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Each shockwave treatment works to stimulate the body’s natural healing process around the site of pain or discomfort. Healing occurs over several treatments by initiating an inflammatory response and ultimately vascularization to bony insertions in the area. The shockwaves are transmitted into the body and the body responds with increased metabolic activity around the area of pain.
Conditions commonly treated with Shockwave Therapy include:
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Achilles and Patellar Tendonitis
• Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
• Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
• IT Band Syndrome
