What is Shockwave Therapy?
Check out Shockwave Therapy, a new technology at CORE that breaks up knots, stiff muscles, and calcium buildup! This allows the body to get into proper alignment while restoring a greater range of motion.
Shockwave therapy is a medical treatment that has been around for many years. Shockwave is an acoustic wave that carries high energy to points of pain and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic, and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues. It is often used as a non-invasive treatment option for kidney stones, nerve pain or degeneration, collagen building, erectile dysfunction, orthopedic injuries, and a whole lot more.
Some treatment candidates that can also benefit from Shockwave therapy are:
- Jumper’s Knee
- Painful Shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Heel Spur
- Insertional Pain
- Chronic Tendinopathy
- Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
- Hip Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy uses waves of sound to:
- Increase the flow of blood to specific regions of the body
- Boost cellular metabolism
- Activate muscle repair and stimulate muscle regeneration
What can I expect after Shockwave Therapy treatment?
While most patients allow themselves a couple of days rest from activity in the painful area after treatment, no prolonged recovery time is usually required.
Are there side effects to Shockwave Therapy?
Side effects can include mild tingling, bruising, or pain after treatment. However these are not common, and very mild when compared to surgical interventions.
