How Does It Work?

Shockwave therapy is applied directly to the skin, covering the affected region. Instead of using electrical impulses, this therapy uses low-energy sound waves, also known as acoustic waves. Shockwave therapy focuses on only those areas of the body affected.

The pressure applied prepares the tissue, boosting cellular circulation and metabolism to speed up the healing process. This therapy can even heal and build up bones by stimulating osteoblasts. Shockwave therapy for knees is widely popular.

What to Expect

This therapy uses sound waves generated from compressed air and is delivered by your therapist using a hand-held shockwave therapy device. Light pressure will be applied to the affected location, and the device will be moved gently over the area. When shockwaves are applied to tissues, minute tears are created in the tissues. This causes the body to develop new blood vessels to substitute for the injured ones. As a result, more oxygenated blood flows to the affected area and accelerates the healing process.

What Are Some Benefits?

Some benefits of shockwave therapy include

  • Reduced inflammation as the acoustic waves stimulate cellular activities
  • Increased collagen production and helps build a strong support framework for new cells to grow in the affected area
  • Decreased calcification by breaking calcium accumulation
The following are a few common conditions that may benefit from shockwave therapy:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
