Radial Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure used for the regeneration of tissues (bone, tendon, muscle, skin). Shockwave therapy works by passing sound waves through the skin to the injured part of the body, using a special machine.

These shockwaves break down scar tissue and increase circulation, which stimulates new blood vessel growth and encourages stem cell migration to the damaged area. Shockwaves are a scientifically-proven treatment of acute and chronic pain, with virtually no side effects. Typically, conditions are resolved after 3-5 sessions.

Who Is Shockwave Therapy for?

Shockwave therapy has proven itself to be an effective treatment option for patients suffering from chronic connective tissue injuries, such as:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shoulder tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Plantar fasciitis
This treatment option is best suited for patients with conditions lasting longer than six weeks; however, it can also provide relief from short-term injuries and muscle tears.
