Shockwave Therapy at Madison Sports Injury Clinic

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that delivers radial waves to injured soft tissues to relieve chronic pain and stimulate faster healing while increasing the blood circulation in these areas.

Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst.

What are Shockwaves?

Radial Shockwaves are acoustic waves that are channelled into the body using a “transmitter” and a “handpiece,” moving through the body from the point of interest in an outward motion. The point of contact is shifted throughout your treatment to cover the entire area of pain.

What Do the Experts Say About Shockwave Therapy?

Clinical research has proven that there have been improvements in the following
conditions :

  • Myofascial Trigger Points (pressure on sensitive points causing pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Chronic Tendinopathies
  • inflammation of tendons causing pain
  • shoulder tendinopathy
  • tennis elbow
  • achilles tendinopathy

What are the Side Effects of Shockwave Therapy?

Does the treatment hurt? There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort.

Side effects may occur 1-2 days after treatment and subsiding after 5-10 days, and they may be

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Mild Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness

How Does Shockwave Therapy Benefit Me?

As the waves penetrate into tissues, it promotes healing, increased blood circulation and
allows for the construction of new blood vessels creating a better habitat for tissue repair
while aiding with pain relief in localized regions.
