Shockwave therapy for Pain Management

Shockwave Therapy for Pain Management

A shockwave is a “high powered sound wave”. Shockwave Therapy sends acoustic shockwaves into bone or soft tissue, in effect re-injuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up the scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. The controlled re-injuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting re-vascularization leads to faster healing, a chemically induced decrease in pain and sensitivity of pain receptors, and often a return to pre-injury activity levels.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically.
