Shockwave Therapy is the latest innovation in the treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries. A projectile is propelled inside the hand-piece where it generates a mechanical pressure wave that is transferred to the human body. This mechanical wave triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions. Over 80% of patients achieve a successful resolution of their symptoms in less than 5 sessions of Shockwave Therapy.
We have had positive results using shockwave therapy with many different orthopedic conditions, as listed above. Most often, shockwave therapy is used when a person suffers from a long term, chronic injury or pain syndrome. If you have experienced back tension for years, a sports-related injury a decade ago, or a nagging shoulder injury, shockwave therapy is likely a great choice for your treatment.
