What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy – also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) – is a cutting-edge treatment option proven to safely and effectively alleviate chronic pain and to potentially provide long-lasting pain relief.

How does shockwave treatment work?

The effects of shockwave occur across several levels:


1. Cell-Level Change – shockwave stimulus affects the chemical environment of tissues at a cellular level. This causes changes to free radicals which boost the release of the substances that help to prevent pain and inflammation.


2. Blood Flow Change – Normal blood flow is critical to the healing process, and shockwaves create a revascularization effect. This type of stimulus redirects new blood flow into the affected area which improves soft tissue healing and regeneration.


3. Muscle Tone Reduction – Shockwave treatment reduces the contractile activity of muscle and can also break patterns of neuro-cognitive pain that are associated with chronic conditions.   This effectively decreases muscle tone and spasm and has specific benefits with eliminating trigger points.


4. Pain Reduction – Shockwave pulses directly affect the nerve fibers that transmit pain signals to our brain. Through the Gate Control Mechanism, shockwaves impact the interneurons in the A-β fibers which prevent the communication of pain.
