Injuries And Pain Management

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

To treat musculoskeletal injuries or other areas, shockwave therapy promotes increased blood flow by breaking up adhesions in the tissues. The disruption of calcified deposits and other blockages allows for more movement in areas of the body that have become tight or “stuck.”

Shockwave can help with the following conditions (and more):



Tennis Elbow

Plantar Fasciitis  


Knots & Tension

Trigger Points

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Achilles Tendinitis

Joint Sprains

Muscle Strains

Hamstring Pulls 

Ligament strains

Increased blood flow helps greatly to relieve pain from acute and chronic injuries, and can accelerate healing. You can read more about how shockwave works, its benefits, and what to expect on our blog.

Shockwave is a safe treatment with no downtime. Minimal side effects include swelling, pain (generally resolves within 24 hours), mild bruising, or numbness or tingling in the treated area.
