Shockwave therapy is a completely noninvasive alternative to surgery. If you suffer from joint or tendon disorders, it may be the ideal care for you. Also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, it provides a boost to your body’s natural healing abilities.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

The acoustic shock waves are sent into bone or soft tissue. It stimulates at a cellular level to break up scarring in the tendons and ligaments. A metabolic reaction in the affected tissue causes the stress fibers to change and develop. Cavitation bubbles form that break down calcium despoils. An analgesic reaction results, which blocks messages of pain.

In turn, your body can regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. This process will lead to quicker healing. In some cases, it may mean a return to preinjury activity levels.
