What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is an innovative and unique approach to chronic pain. The technology itself was originally invented to treat kidney stones, and it did so with great success. Since then the variety of ailments that Shockwave can assist in treating has grown vastly, and the technology behind the therapy continues to be some of the most advanced in the industry.
Shockwave may sound similar to putting your finger into an electrical socket, but in fact it couldn’t be further from the truth as there is no electrical shock that is actually generated. A shockwave is actually a physically generated sound wave that occurs when an object reaches the speed of sound. Shockwave is an effective and well received treatment for chronic conditions that have otherwise been resistant to common therapies, such as Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis Elbow, Jumpers Knee, Achilles Tendonitis and much more!
The average amount of treatments needed for a single condition is three; once a week over a three week period, and then a break while the body heals. Some patients feel relief after the very first session, however your body will continue to heal itself for the next 12 weeks. There are circumstances where a 4th or 5th treatments is required to alleviate the pain of a stubborn ailment and to get optimal results.
