What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes high energy acoustic waves that interact with musculoskeletal tissue, promoting enhanced tissue repair and cell growth. It is used to treat subacute, subchronic, and chronic pain conditions.

Common Pain Problems

  • heel spur and planter fasciitis
  • Achilles’ tendinitis and bursitis
  • Tibialis anterior snyndrome
  • jumper’s knee
  • chronic tendinopathy
  • painful shoulder (calcification, tendonitis, impingement syndrome)
  • tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • exostoses of small hand joints in case of grade one arthrosis
  • Proximal iliotibial band friction syndrome

Medical Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

  • new blood vessel formation – nutrient blood flow necessary to maintain damaged tissue reparation
  • reversal of chronic inflammation
  • stimulation of collagen production – sufficient collagen necessary for repair processes of damaged myoskeletal structures and ligaments
  • dissolution of calcified fibroblasts
  • dispersion of pain mediator “substance p” – reduction in concentration of substance p reduces pain in affected area
  • release of trigger points – trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder, and limbs
  • improved metabolism and microcirculation
