Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive, out-patient alternative to surgery for those suffering from many joint and tendon disorders. Shockwave Therapy sends acoustic shock waves into bone or soft tissue, in effect reinjuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up the scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. The controlled reinjuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting revascularization leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activities.
Shockwave Therapy is particularly good at pain management and reduction. The therapy is effective for three reasons: The shockwaves stimulate a metabolic reaction in the affected tissue that causes revascularization of blood vessels; they generate cavitation bubbles that break down calcific deposits; and they induce an analgesic reaction mechanism, which blocks pain messages.
Everyone with soft tissue injuries can benefit. Shockwave Therapy provides a safe, non-surgical alternative for those suffering from hip pointers, hamstring Tendinopathy, rotator cuff tendinopathy, tennis or golfers elbow, patellar and achilles tendon pain, shin splints, Morton's Neuroma, stress fractures and plantar fasciitis and/or heel spurs.
