Learn About Shockwave Therapy

Question?  What is Shockwave Therapy and how does it work?
A clinical shockwave therapy is nothing more than a controlled explosion that creates acoustic energy, much like an airplane breaking the sound barrier or when lightning strikes.
The greatest effect of a shock wave therapy is a regeneration of diseased tissue and ability to control pain.

The main benefits for shockwave therapy is based on inflammatory healing response.
Every time shock wave is used during treatment, it causes microtrauma to the treated tissue.
So, diseased muscle, tendon or ligament are caused to undergo inflammatory state which allows the body to recruit healing cells that come to the area inside the blood.
Shockwave therapy has many avenues where it can be used; orthopedics is one of them.
Here are just a few most common indications for shock wave therapy.

  • painful shoulder (calcification, tendonitis, impingement syndrome)
