Shock Wave Therapy
Shock wave therapy is a nonsurgical chiropractic treatment that utilizes spurts of highly pressured acoustic (sound) waves to deliver a powered force to painful areas on the body. In addition to diminishing chronic pain, this state-of-the-art therapy may also improve range of motion and decrease muscle tension.
Experience Pain Relief
Highly effective, shock wave therapy promotes healing and may provide relief from a variety of painful conditions. These include:
• Achilles tendonitis
• Plantar fasciitis
• Tennis elbow
What Is the Process Like?
When you come in for a shock wave therapy treatment at Alpha Chiropractic, you’ll have a noninvasive probe affixed to your skin. Then, an energy wave that’s targeted toward the painful area will be created by an electrical charge. Healing of the area may result due to the shock waves generating a force on the tissues. The process is relatively quick, only taking approximately 15 minutes per painful or injured area. The best part? No anesthesia is required.
As every person responds differently to treatment, there is no guarantee that shock wave therapy will work for everyone. According to results seen at various chiropractic clinics, shock wave therapy may help up to 90% or more patients experience long-lasting pain relief.
