Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy promotes healing by utilizing high-pressure sound waves to stimulate the formation of new bone and tissue cells.

Reduce joint pain with this noninvasive treatment.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy reduces pain and promotes soft tissue healing as a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment for musculoskeletal areas of the body such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and heels. Shockwave therapy works by using single pulse, high pressure, wide-frequency sound waves that are targeted at problem areas with the goal of breaking up scar tissue, reducing inflammation, and stimulating tissue healing. We use shockwave therapy as part of a holistic program that is specifically tailored to your body’s needs.

Get your questions answered about shockwave therapy.

Does shockwave therapy employ electroshock techniques?

Not at all. Shockwave therapy does not pass any electrical currents through the body — it is similar to ultrasound in that it uses sound waves to create a therapeutic result.

What types of conditions can be treated with shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is indicated in the treatment of tendon injuries such as tennis elbow or tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis of the knee, and other common musculoskeletal conditions.

Who should avoid shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is not recommended for patients with open wounds or blood clotting disorders, anyone with a pacemaker, pregnant women, joint replacements, or the treatment of infected or cancerous tissues.
