Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that is extremely effective for soft tissue repair, healing of injuries, and treatment of a variety of painful conditions. Shockwave treatments utilize intense, very short energy waves travelling faster than the speed of sound to stimulate recovery at a cellular level. The basic technology behind the treatment has been utilized for decades on millions of patients (for instance, those with kidney stones), but it has proven to have much wider applications!
Shockwave therapy promotes accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain. It is highly recommended for treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinopathy, Tennis Elbow, Jumper’s Knee, Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, Hallux Rigidus, and many others. Shockwave treatments have shown effectiveness with scar tissue treatment, stress fractures, and even non-healing ulcers.
There are many advantages to shockwave therapy. Therapy sessions are short, typically only 20–30 minutes in length. They provide successful relief of chronic pain and restore mobility painlessly, with no side effects. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment. The best news of all, shockwave therapy is covered by many EHC insurance plans and work benefits.
