SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary new technology which provides non-surgical treatment for many conditions that historically could only be resolved through surgical intervention.

Shockwave therapy promotes healing of degenerated and injured tissue leading to:

  • Reduced pain
  • Increased joint function
  • Accelerated healing
  • Reduction in medication use

Shockwave therapy has been clinically proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of medical conditions in only 3-5 treatment sessions such as:

  • 90% improvement in plantar fasciitis (Journal of Orthopaedic Research, 2005)
  • 91% improvement in calcific tendinitis (Journal of Am. Medical Association, 2003)
  • 77% improvement in tennis elbow (Journal of Orthopaedics, 2005)

Other conditions successfully treated include: achilles tendinitis, patellar tendinitis, medial tibial stress syndrome, golfers elbow, rotator cuff tendinitis, trochanteric bursitis, low back and neck pain, and various muscular trigger points.
