Shockwave therapy is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal injuries. It stimulates the local cellular metabolism, increases blood flow, and helps to reducepain for the patient.Shockwave therapy is often used as an adjunct to a controlled exercise rehabilitation program for soft tissue injury, aiding in the reduction of scar tissue (fibrosis) and soft tissue mineralization. Frequency of the shockwave treatments is determined by the type, location, and duration of the injury. Common injuries that are treated include:

  • Ligament/tendon tears and strains
  • Arthritis/bone pain
  • Navicular syndrome
  • Back/neck pain
  • Muscle tears and strains
