What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy — which is also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy — is administered to a tendon or muscle through the skin with a small, handheld device that’s similar to an ultrasound wand.

Shockwave is a modality that delivers sound waves to the injured soft tissue. The sound waves stimulate blood flow to the treated area of your body. Increased blood flow causes a small amount of localized inflammation. Your body will work to naturally heal this inflammation, which stimulates the repair and generation of cells.

Shockwave Therapy Benefits

Shockwave therapy is often prescribed as a treatment for patients who have sports injuries like a golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, or pulled hamstring. It’s also administered to patients who experience pain in their soft tissues, such as that caused by plantar fasciitis — a painful condition that affects the heels of the feet.

Shockwave therapy may be used to:

  • Reduce pain by overstimulating nerve endings in the affected area
  • Break down calcified deposits (like kidney stones)
  • Muscle recovery
  • Groin pain
  • Stimulate cells that generate new bone tissue and connective tissue
  • Stiffness
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shoulder joint tendon inflammation

Secret Weapon Against Cellulite

Numerous research studies provide scientific evidence that Shockwave therapy is the only treatment that works in reducing the effect of cellulite versus any other treatment technique.

Shockwave therapy operates by effectively breaking down fat cells and rejuvenating the flexibility of connective tissue within the affected areas. This dual action not only reduces the dimpling and uneven texture characteristic of cellulite but also leads to skin that appears tighter and smoother. With numerous research studies backing its efficacy, Shockwave therapy continues to offer hope to those seeking to achieve a more confident and radiant appearance.
