Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy

GET TO THE SOURCE OF YOUR PAIN WITH SHOCKWAVE TREATMENTS

Shockwave therapy in Orleans is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment which promotes accelerated recovery from soft tissue, bone, and joint pain. It is one of the most advanced and cost-effective therapeutic technologies currently available.

Shockwave therapy works by emitting high-energy, but comfortable, pressure waves into the painful areas of the body.  These pressure waves help the body to restore mobility by breaking down scar tissue, adhesions, trigger points and calcifications. Shockwave also improves blood circulation to the injury which enhances healing and regeneration of damaged tissues.

Relief typically begins within 1-2 treatments, and there is no downtime. 


CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE EFFECTIVELY TREATED IN ORLEANS INCLUDE:

  • Foot Pain (E.g. Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia, Heel Spurs)
  • Elbow Pain (E.g. Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow)
  • Shoulder Pain (E.g. Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, Frozen Shoulder)
