SHOCKWAVE THERAPY, NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT OF SOFT TISSUE, BONE, HEEL AND JOINT PAIN
Shockwave Therapy promotes healing of degenerated or injured tissue leading to reduced pain and an increase in joint function.
Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to be effective in resolving and treating a wide variety of medical conditions, improving the quality of your life. Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the body's self-healing powers, particularly in cases where the body has been unable to do it on its' own. It stimulates metabolism and enhances blood circulation which enables damaged tissue to regenerate and eventually heal.
The practitioner, will apply shockwaves through a specially designed hand piece that produces strong energy pulses for short periods of time. The shockwave energy pulses are applied directly to the affected tissue areas in a controlled procedure.
Shockwaves have a mechanical effect on the tissue. Pressure in front of the shockwave is transmitted into the tissue, creating microcavitation bubbles that expand and burst in a resultant force. This force penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body which are responsible for bone(osteoblasts) and connective tissue(fibroblast) healing.
Many clients experience a decrease or complete absence of pain immediately after treatment. Bruising, swelling, and on rare occasions, skin breakdown may occur. There may be some soreness 1-2 hours afterwards due to an inflammatory response of the body to the shockwave. This is NORMAL and is your body's way of healing itself and regenerating the targeted tissue. This discomfort usually subsides after 1-2 days
Research has shown that shockwave breaks down calcium deposits.
After 2-3 sessions, over 80% of patients report a significant reduction in pain.
* 90% improvement for plantar fasciitis
(Journal of Orthopaedics Research 2005)
* 91% improvment for tendinonitis
(Journal of America Medical Association 2003)
* 77% improvement for tennis elbow
(Journal of Orthopaedics 2005)
Shockwave Therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, in particular those involving areas where major connective tissue attaches to bone.
Shockwave Therapy sessions takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the disorder that is being treated. In general, 3-5 session are necessary at weekly intervals.
