Shockwave Therapy

What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary treatment that jumpstarts your body’s natural healing process. When you experience chronic pain, your body stops recognizing the presence of an injury, halting the healing mechanism and leaving you in constant discomfort. However, with the help of Shockwave Centers of America™, relief is possible.

Using powerful shockwaves, this therapy reaches deep into your soft tissue, creating a microtrauma or new inflammatory condition in the treated area. This “new injury” triggers your body’s healing response once again, reigniting the natural repair and restoration process. Additionally, the energy emitted by the shockwaves prompts the release of certain bio-chemicals within the soft tissue, boosting the healing process even further. These bio-chemicals promote the growth of new microscopic blood vessels, aiding in the revitalization of the affected area.

By applying strong energy pulses to the injured region for short periods of time, shockwave therapy stimulates the cells responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. In cases where the body has struggled to heal itself, this treatment has proven to be highly effective. Say goodbye to chronic pain and embrace the power of shockwave therapy for a natural and lasting solution.

Shockwave therapy treatment

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that is often utilized when other chiropractic care methods have proven ineffective in alleviating pain, prior to considering surgical or more invasive alternatives. This therapy begins with a comprehensive full-body assessment to pinpoint problematic areas. A specialized gel is then applied to the affected site, enhancing the body’s responsiveness to the shock waves. Finally, the transmitters are employed to deliver acoustic sound waves deep into the tissues, providing significant pain improvement.

Shockwave treatment has a range of benefits for the body including:

  • Enhances nutrient and blood flow to injured areas
  • Releases trigger points and reduces muscle tension
  • Disrupts calcium deposits and scar tissue, facilitating tissue repair
  • Improves mobility and enhances range of motion
  • Alleviates inflammation in affected areas
  • Induces analgesic response for pain relief by blocking pain sensation
