Shockwave Therapy (SWT)
Soundwaves generated by the treatment activate and accelerate biological effects which cause your body re-enter the initial healing phase with regeneration of the soft tissues in the injured area and long-term pain relief. Shockwave therapy works by “re-activating” your body’s healing functions:
- New Blood Vessel Formation (Angiogenesis)
- Reversal of Chronic Inflammation
- Stimulation of Collagen Production
- Reduction of Calcified Tendons/Ligaments
- Release of Pain Mediator – Substance ‘P’
- Trigger Point Relief
What Conditions Can Be Resolved?
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Golfer’s Elbow/Tennis Elbow
- Shoulder Impingement
- Hip Pain/Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
- Jumper’s Knee/Runner’s Knee
- Chronic Neck Pain
- Chronic Low Back Pain
How Does It Work?
Nutrient blood flow is necessary to start and maintain the repair processes for your damaged tissue. The treatment tricks your body into restarting the healing process which decreases the inflammation associated with chronic injury in your body. The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is a necessary precondition for the repair processes of the damaged myoskeletal and ligamentous structures which happened with your initial injury but didn’t have enough help to complete the process to heal your body completely.
Delivered soundwave energy unblocks barriers to healing and reverses the metabolic crisis in the muscle and soft tissue which are keeping your muscles tense, tight and contracted, releasing your chronic, painful trigger points.
How is SWT better than Traditional Therapy?
– Massive Improvements in your Range of Motion
As a non-surgical/non-invasive therapy, there are no need for dangerous and addictive opioid medications which means it is an IDEAL therapy to speed up your recovery and get you back to full regular activity in a fraction of the time required with traditional physical therapy.
