Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing and promote tissue regeneration. These waves are delivered to the target area of the body in a controlled and focused manner via a hand-held transducer which generates the high energy waves and delivers them to the site of injury.
Shockwave increases blood flow, releases growth factors, and stimulates cellular activation to aid in healing the damaged or injured tissue.This reduces pain and inflammation while promoting tissue repair and regeneration. 

Shockwave has shown benefits in treating injuries like strains, sprains, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis. It helps to improve pain and function while speeding the healing process. Most patients love that this is a non-surgical option and it does require taking medication which eliminates the risks associated with invasive procedures and medication exposure. It is a targeted treatment that is applied precisely to the injured area without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue and can provide long-lasting relief from soft tissue injuries.
