Shockwave therapy delivers high-powered energy to a focal location to try & speed the body’s natural healing. It influences cell inflammation and can improve blood flow to areas with limited circulation. The technology was developed in Munich Germany in the 1970s to break up kidney stones has shown promising results in orthopedic studies for tendon and bone injuries. The technology is generally very safe and non-invasive, so it’s a nice compliment to rehab in athletes looking to get on the field as soon as possible. It’s nice to have athletes share what goes on in the training room & their battles to overcome injuries and pain from repetitive sports at the elite level.
At the Orthohealing Center, we apply shockwave therapy for professional athletes as well as weekend warriors and everyday patients seeking natural pain reduction.
