Shockwave therapy is a nonsurgical in-office treatment to help heal painful musculoskeletal conditions. It is often referred to as acoustic wave Therapy. Shockwave treatment uses pressure waves focused on the site of the pain or injury to stimulate the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, “jump-starting” the healing process. It may also help to heal damaged tissue.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
SHOCKWAVE THERAPY is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
Shockwave is useful for heel pain from plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis, Bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, back Pain, neck pain, calves and hamstring tightness, patellar tendinitis, lateral epicondylitis, neuropathies and shin splints. Shockwave can also be used for indications other than Musculoskeletal conditions such as sexual rejuvenation, ED, stretch marks and cellulite.
The safety of this procedure is proven. If done by a qualified provider, the procedure has virtually no risks or side effects. Since there is no medication, surgery, injections, or anesthesia administered, complications are extremely low.
