Can Shockwave Therapy help you?

Can Shockwave Therapy help you?

neck-radial shockwave picShockwave Therapy is a revolutionary new technology which provides non-surgical treatment for many conditions that historically could only be resolved through surgical intervention.

Shockwave Therapy promotes healing of degenerated or injured tissue leading to reduced pain and an increase in joint function.

Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to be effective in resolving and treating a wide variety of medical conditions, improving the quality of your life. Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the body’s self-healing powers, particularly in cases where the body has been unable to do it on its’ own. It stimulates metabolism and enhances blood circulation which enables damaged tissue to regenerate and eventually heal.

Quote from Rupi

Many clients experience a decrease or complete absence of pain immediately after treatment. Bruising, swelling, and on rare occasions, skin breakdown may occur. There may be some soreness 1-2 hours afterwards due to an inflammatory response of the body to the shockwave. This is NORMAL and is your body’s way of healing itself and regenerating the targeted tissue. This discomfort usually subsides after 1-2 days

Research has shown that shockwave breaks down calcium deposits.

After 2-3 sessions, over 80% of patients report a significant reduction in pain.
