Radial shockwave therapy is provided by our chiropractors and may be submitted under chiropractic benefits. Shockwave is a safe and non-invasive pain relief and tissue repair treatment. The benefits can be immediate and are often long-lasting. It is widely used by chiropractors, sports medicine specialists, and even veterinarians. It’s an excellent option for anyone with an active lifestyle, including athletes and hikers. Shockwave also helps to ease tension, stiffness and chronic pain that may result from repetitive postures or activities. If you spend a lot of time working behind a computer and suffer back, shoulder, wrist or elbow pain, you may benefit from radial shockwave therapy.
Shockwave works by directing high energy acoustic waves at injured, degenerated or stiff/tight tissue. The waves will accelerate the healing process for both acute and chronic conditions.
Our chiropractors use an advanced-technology instrument, the Storz Medical Masterplus Ultra Mp100. It is manufactured in Switzerland and stands out for its excellent performance.
The treatment takes only a few minutes. This means minimal disruption to your schedule, and you can get right back to your day after your appointment.
Your radial shockwave therapy session will follow a 3-step sequence.
