Shockwave therapy involves the application of acoustic sound waves to target tissues to accelerate cellular repair, control pain, and restore mobility. Shockwave is one of the best research-backed treatments for chronic musculoskeletal conditions that have not healed properly. Shockwave is highly indicated for long lasting tendon and connective tissue problems such as tennis elbow, achilles tendinopathy, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciopathy, and jumper’s knee. Shockwave has a piston-like effect over the tissue it is applied to and can be uncomfortable during the application. Often patients will feel relief after their first treatment and can expect more significant changes within 3-5 applications.
