Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy works by sending high-pressure pulses into specific areas of your body to break up scar tissue and adhesions while also improving circulation. Here at PTC we have found that shockwave therapy significantly speeds up the healing process and provides relief for various conditions.

Shockwave therapy works to break up adhesions in muscle tissue, which helps heal injured tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues, as well as aid in pain relief. Shockwave therapy helps break down calcified deposits in muscles, increase blood flow to the target area and work to reduce inflammation, which speeds up the healing process and increases the body's ability to generate new tissue. 

Conditions that benefit from Shockwave therapy

Shockwave can help treat a multitude of conditions such as

  • Upper and lower extremity tendinopathies.
  • Greater trochanteric pain syndrome.
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome.
  • Patellar tendinopathy.
  • Plantar fasciopathy.
  • Adhesive capsulitis.
  • Non-union of long bone fracture.
  • Avascular necrosis of femoral head.

How long does it take for Shockwave to work?

Depending on the condition, most people who get shockwave therapy will often see benefits almost immediately, and more long term benefits within one to three months. The initial results (within the first several weeks) can be dramatic. There is still not enough long-term research and data to say how long the treatment might last, or whether you will need additional treatment at a later time. Schedule an appointment today to see if you're a good candidate for shockwave!
