Everyone knows the old adage that declares "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." This time-honored wisdom certainly makes sense. We wouldn't wait until we were riding on the wheel rim ...View Article

Shockwave Therapy is a fast and effective non-surgical method of eliminating or reducing many painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Shockwave Therapy is safe and has proven success for treating acute and chronic soft tissue conditions. Patients with tendonitis, calcified shoulders or deep trigger points can be successfully treated in a short time.

There are no side effects with this non surgical treatment and it is available at a reasonable cost. Shockwave treatments are non invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain.
A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave traveling faster than the speed of sound. In modern pain therapy shockwave energy is conducted from the place of its generation (the shockwave generator) to the painful body regions where it applies healing capacities. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) refers to outside the body, which is the way the shock is both generated and applied. Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT) spreads the energy over a large surface area producing a low to medium energy level.
Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the body's self healing powers. The repeated pressure waves to the affected area creates neo-vascularization (new blood flow) into the area. This creates a metabolic response, thus enhancing blood circulation and promotes tissue healing. Damaged tissue generally regenerates and eventually heals.
Therapy sessions are short and provide successful relief of chronic pain and restores mobility painlessly. Relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment.
