The Doctor’s View

Shockwave Therapy is particularly good at pain management or elimination.

The therapy is effective in reducing chronic musculoskeletal pain for three primary reasons:

  1. The Shock waves stimulate a metabolic reaction in the affected tissue, causing stress fibers to develop and/or change in their permeability.
  2. They generate cavitation bubbles that break down calcific deposits.
  3. They induce an analgesic effect by stimulating the brain’s gate-control mechanism which blocks pain messages. In many cases, patients feel no pain after a single treatment, and are able to resume normal physical activities quickly.
