Shockwave Therapy

Elbow painWhat is Shockwave Therapy?

A safe, effective and non-invasive type of treatment that targets soft tissues and the surrounding areas. It creates an alternative to surgery and cortisol injections. The practitioner uses a hand-held machine which she directs on the targeted area(s) of concern. It feels like a series of consistent tapping which usually does not cause pain, but you can begin to feel a little discomfort due to the energy being transmitted from the machine to your tissues. The wave of energy from the device creates micro trauma to the tissues being focused on. It promotes growth of new blood vessels and helps heal the bone tissue.

With this increase of new blood flow, it can speed up the healing process and allow for a decrease in pain and an increase in normal ranges of motion. The secondary effects involved are due to the stimulation of the acute inflammatory response of a chronic injury. It stimulates the bodies natural healing processes which allows for a quicker healing recovery time from surgery. Many times it is used as an alternative therapy when pain and injury has persisted and other forms of therapy are not working.
