Shock Wave Therapy for Soft Tissue Injuries

What is Shock Wave Therapy?

Extrcorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) works by essentially “re-injuring” a soft tissue area of one’s body with little or no discomfort in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

How Does it Work?

ESWT breaks down adhesions, calcifications, and scar tissue to encourage the creation of new blood vessels in Muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and other connective tissue. This increase in blood vessel production promotes enhanced blood and thereby nutrient flow to the affected area, allowing the body to more completely heal itself.
