Shockwave Therapy

Relieve your pain and promote faster healing with shockwave therapy.

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment for acute and chronic pain in deep layers of soft tissue, like muscles, bones and tendons. This treatment helps restart the healing process in old injuries, resolve chronic inflammation, break up scar tissue, increase mobility and ease pain.

Most patients notice a difference after the first treatment.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), uses high-energy sound waves that penetrate deep into soft tissues that can’t be reached using standard chiropractic techniques or tools. It stimulates blood flow and the body’s natural healing processes.

It is considered one of the most advanced and highly effective treatment options with an up to 90% success rate in many cases.
