WHAT IS IT?
Shockwave or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modality that uses high energy pulses of acoustic energy to increase local circulation and breakdown calcifications at the site.
WHAT WE TREAT
We treat a wide variety of conditions including plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinitis, and much more!
Shockwave is used by Mayo Clinic to treat
- soft tissue conditions
Shockwave therapy promotes increased blood flow at the tendon-bone junction and stimulates cell proliferation, collagen synthesis, and tissue remodeling. It is great for patients who have failed traditional PT or injections.
"I received 6 sessions of Shockwave therapy over a 2 month period. Prior to receiving treatment, I had already undergone surgery, 2 rounds of physical therapy, and chiropractic care with no success. Having been told by multiple physicians that I would likely never run again, I was skeptical about the treatment. I noticed a difference in my knees after the 3rd session. It has now been 4 months since my last session, and I could not be happier with my progress. Though mild pain is still present, my knees have strengthened to where I can jog and walk with mild symptoms. I am so thankful that I can keep up with my kids again!"
