Shockwave is a noninvasive treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing.
Shockwave is ideal for CHRONIC patients whose injuries are not responding to first line treatments, such as rest, ice, therapeutic exercise, bracing and orthotics, but who are not yet ready to consider more-invasive or surgical options.
Shockwave is used to treat chronic or reccurent tendinopathy throughout the body. Shockwave helps by
Reduce muscle pain and aches
Temporarily increase blood flow

Distal quadricep tendonitis
Posterior tibial tendonitis and bursitis
