What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Shockwave Therapy (or Extracorporeal shockwave) is a curative process that results in the elimination of symptoms including pain and inflammation.  In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing. Shockwave Therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.  If you are bothered with plantar fasciitis or any tendonitis, Shockwave Therapy can help.

When to use Shockwave

Shockwave Therapy is a noninvasive treatment that involves creating a series of low-energy acoustic wave pulsations to disrupt the body's current status and start the healing process. It is being used in various medical circles because of its flexibility to target the hurt areas. We have recently added Shockwave Therapy to the list of services we offer to assist in the care of our patients.

The introduction of Shockwave into our practice has produced outstanding results, including—but not limited to—reduced swelling and improved collagen production. Collagen is the foundation of all tissue, and this leads to the regrowth of blood vessels, nerves, muscle, bone, and cartilage where possible.

The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects. It is a drug-free option to improve your healing. Watch the video the video to see how this therapy works. We have a dedicated shockwave technician on staff. Our techs have completed specialized training in shockwave therapy.
