Shockwave Therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process in injured areas. Using high-energy sound wave pulses, this treatment stimulates the metabolism and enhances blood circulation to promote tissue healing and pain relief from injury.
Our chiropractors perform this non-surgical, non-invasive technique by applying gel to the treatment area, then releasing high-energy sound wave pulses through an applicator. The pressure from these shockwaves creates cavitation bubbles which then burst, resulting in a force that helps to break down calcific deposits embedded in damaged tissue. Translation? Faster healing, reduced inflammation, decreased pain in the affected area, and less swelling.

Depending on your condition, you can expect treatment to be completed within three to six sessions, lasting 10 – 15 minutes each. We’ll be sure to space them out at least seven days apart. Even better? Shockwave Therapy allows you to return to your daily life immediately; there are virtually no side effects, aside from possible minor discomfort or bruising for a few days. No need for a referral! This effective, affordable treatment is covered by most insurance companies.
