How does shockwave therapy work?
Shockwave therapy reduces pain and jumpstarts healing in soft muscle tissue by delivering a series of shock waves of energy to targeted pain points where there is injured muscle tissue. It speeds up the tissue repair process and cell growth, promoting healing.
Shockwave therapy is part of the physical therapy wheelhouse. It benefits you by relieving pain without having to undergo a risky surgery with a lengthy recovery period. It also means you won’t have any need for painkillers that can be addictive by nature.
Are shockwave treatments painful?
Fortunately, shockwave therapy is not painful. When you undergo shockwave therapy you may feel a small amount of pain, typically just a slight feeling of discomfort. Many people who have undergone the procedure say it has a similar feeling of minor pulsations on different parts of the skin. However, although you may experience some discomfort during the procedure, it doesn’t carry the risk of surgery or the pain that comes after surgery.
Shockwave treatments are an excellent non-surgical option for a wide variety of issues. This can include:
rotator cuff issues
tennis and golfer’s elbow
