What is
Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, or extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating a series of acoustic wave pulsations that are applied to an injury through a person’s skin via a gel medium.The purpose of the therapy is to trigger the body’s own natural healing response and is used in the treatment of many musculoskeletal
conditions, primarily those involving connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons.

How it works?

Shockwave therapy helps relieve your pain by sending acoustic waves into the affected tissue and promotes tissue regeneration and revascularization. The sound waves created by the shockwave machine can then stimulate collagen production, dissolve calcium, reverse chronic inflammation, help foster tissue recovery via blood vessel formation thereby increasing circulation, tissue metabolism and bone strength. It ultimately reduces and
resolves your pain by providing accelerated tissue repair and growth, restoring mobility, and providing an analgesic effect to let you comfortably get back to your regular activities.

  • Tendinopathies (ie. knee, hamstring, shoulder)

  • Myofascial trigger points

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Bursitis

  • Jumper’s knee

  • Shoulder pain
