Shockwave Therapy – Evidence-Based Treatment for Heel Pain

Posted on

Safely provides immediate pain relief and long-term healing results.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave therapy uses high-intensity sound wave that travels through the skin to break down targeted scar/fibrotic tissue and stimulate tissue repair.

Shockwave is effective at treating:

  • Plantar Fasciitis / Fasciosis
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Shin Splints
  • Osgood Schlatters Disease
  • Tendon Injuries
  • Muscle Strains

How well does Shockwave Therapy really work?

80% of all patients report a substantial improvement of the condition after 3 treatment sessions.
