What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and highly effective treatment option for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. It uses focused acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and promote tissue regeneration. This therapy is particularly beneficial for addressing chronic pain, tendon injuries, and certain orthopedic conditions.

Conditions Treated

Our experienced team of healthcare professionals utilizes Shockwave Therapy to treat a range of conditions, including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
  • Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Patellar Tendinopathy (Jumper’s Knee)
  • Calcific Shoulder Tendinopathy
  • Shin Splints
  • And more…

How It Works

Shockwave Therapy delivers high-energy acoustic waves to the targeted area. These waves stimulate increased blood flow, cellular metabolism, and the formation of new blood vessels. The process triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to reduced pain, inflammation, and improved tissue repair.
