Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy treats a variety of conditions using shock waves, or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) outside of the body.

The treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive.

This quick, effective procedure harnesses intense but very short energy waves to heal many chronic painful conditions.

The low-energy shock waves are not painful, or mildly painful. The high-energy shock wave treatments are quite painful.
