Shockwave therapy is a proven method for healing injuries that have been difficult to treat with other methods. It works by using sound waves to stimulate tissue repair and blood flow.
Our shock wave therapy treatments target the affected area with focused energy waves that help heal soft tissue damage faster than traditional physical therapy methods. If you're suffering from an acute or chronic injury, come see us today! We offer consultations to make sure our services are right for your needs.
Shockwave therapy (or extracorporeal shockwave therapy) delivers shock waves through the skin to deeper tissues. The shock waves cause microscopic muscle fibers to contract and twitch, stimulating blood circulation and accelerating the healing of damaged muscle tissue caused by an overuse injury or micro-tears. Our shockwave therapy can help treat a variety of soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, Achilles tendonitis, osteoarthritis of the knee. Shockwave therapy is often used in conjunction with other treatment methods such as physical therapy or corticosteroid injections to speed recovery time and allow patients to work through their pain while they heal.
Shockwave therapy accelerates the body's natural healing process by increasing your blood flow while also strengthening and speeding up tissue repair. As shockwave therapy stimulates and strengthens tissue, you will begin to feel better after just one treatment.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy treatments last for about 20 minutes. The shock waves are produced in the shock wave machine using air pressure waves or electrical impulses to create shockwaves that travel through the muscles at a speed of three miles per second while also increasing the oxygen supply to the areas treated.
This shockwave machine is a great device used to treat soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, and chronic joint pain experienced in older people. It's very important to have shockwave therapy treatments done by qualified professionals with extensive shock wave training because shockwaves are unlike other devices that use heat, light, and ultrasound to treat injuries.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy can be used for sports injuries. It helps to improve the healing process for sports injuries that many athletes get during a sporting event. Many athletes suffer from sports injuries because of overuse. Some athletes may engage in a rigorous training schedule, while others might participate in high-impact sporting events. Sports injuries can be career-ending if not treated properly and shockwave therapy has been found to accelerate the healing process of a sports injury.
