Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that gets to the root of your pain, facilitating healing and accelerating your recovery. Shockwave improves your body’s regenerative potential, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse or weakness.

Active Release Techniques may help the body...

Accelerate Healing

Stimulates soft tissue & bone repair, nerve regeneration, & increased cellular metabolism.

Drug-Free Pain Relief

Decreases pain intensity and pain pressure thresholds quickly and effectively.

Restore Function

Improves range of motion, release tissue adhesions, calcifications and helps correct soft tissue dysfunction.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy, also referred to as radial pressure wave (EPAT) and focused shockwave (ESWT) is today’s most innovative approach to treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and connective tissue disorders. It’s backed by evidence and works in tandem with a range of other regenerative solutions for exceptional outcomes. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive clinic based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Shockwave has virtually no risks or side effects. In some cases, patients may experience some minor discomfort which may continue for a few days. It is normal to have some residual pain after intense exercise or a full day of work. We are proud to offer both groundbreaking technologies, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) and Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT).

The single most effective treatment for tendiopathy.

Physiologic Benefits

Accelerated Healing

Stem Cells have a high therapeutic potential and are therefore used in various areas of regenerative medicine. Several studies have found that radial shockwaves significantly promoted the proliferation and self-renewal of mesenchymal stem cells in vitro and safely accelerated the cartilage repair and proliferation of cells in bone, tendon, cartilage, nerve and connective tissue, indicating favorable clinical outcomes.

Pain Relief

Extracorporeal Shockwave has an analgesic effect through several mechanisms. Research has shown that it reduces nerve sensitivity, and hinders nerve conduction of pain causing nerve fibers. In addition, shock waves alter the composition of chemical mediators around nociceptors and mimic the effect of capsaicin by reducing substance-P concentration. Substance-P causes pain through a process known as nociception. A nociceptor is a sensory neuron that reacts to potentially damaging stimuli by signaling the spinal cord and brain causing the perception of pain and has proinflammatory effects.


Research have shown that ESWT stimulates the release of nitric oxide (NO), which regulates vascular tone and enhances the distribution of local blood flow & microcirculation. In addition, it promotes the activation of molecular and immunological reactions, increases cell oxygen carrying, stimulates angiogenesis, and has an anti-inflammatory action with suppression of proinflammatory markers.

Increase Range of Motion

Research shows that ESWT can help improve range of motion and mobility in those with musculoskeletal disorders. Shockwave therapy can produce a cavitation effect between tissues, causing intertissue release, promoting the separation and release of adhesive tissue. It may also improve range of motion because the therapy reduced pain by causing changes in the metabolism of cells and the penetrability of endothelial tissues. In addition, it may stabilize the tissues by stimulating and reactivating the healing process of soft tissue and their surrounding structures by creating new muscle fibers through facilitating the secretion of angiogenic substances around the affected region and increasing blood flow to the region.

What to Expect During Treatment

Treatment sessions last about 5-10 minutes and many patients experience dramatic reduction in pain and increase in range of motion after their first treatment. Shockwave Therapy has virtually no risks or side effects.The procedure can eliminate pain and restore full mobility, thus improving your quality of life. More than 80% of patients treated report to be pain free or have significant pain reduction.
