ShockWave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy works by inducing microtrauma to the affected tissue. This induced

trauma initiates a healing response by the body. The healing response prompts the body to

form new blood vessels thereby increasing the delivery of nutrients and other healing factors

to the affected area. Microtrauma stimulates a repair process and relieves the symptoms of

pain. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, drug free option for problems that are

sometimes challenging to treat. There are no side effects reported with shockwave therapy.

 

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy works by inducing microtrauma to the affected tissue. This induced

trauma initiates a healing response by the body. The healing response prompts the body to

form new blood vessels thereby increasing the delivery of nutrients and other healing factors

to the affected area. Microtrauma stimulates a repair process and relieves the symptoms of

pain. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, drug free option for problems that are

sometimes challenging to treat. There are no side effects reported with shockwave therapy.

Shockwave Therapy provides physiotherapy benefits for patients by triggering and

accelerating the body’s own healing process, stimulating the metabolism, and improving

blood circulation which all results in the regeneration of damaged tissues.

 

Shockwave Therapy works by:

  • Stimulating blood flow for a beneficial immune response.
  • Reinjuring tissues and causing an inflammatory response to stimulate healing by causing endothelial microtrauma, recruiting immune cells, and initiating wound healing.
  • Shutting down the neuronal pain pathways through the pulses hitting the affected nerves.

 

What are some conditions that can be treated by shockwave therapy?

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic tendonitis
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Trigger points - post workout aches and pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Erectile dysfunction
