Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a modern treatment option used to relieve the pain and symptoms of a number of different common conditions and disorders. These include:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis

The therapy is a non-invasive procedure that directs low energy shock waves at an area that is exhibiting pain. The procedure is safe and effective, as well as quick-an extracorporeal shock wave therapy session lasts about 15 minutes, and a course of treatment is typically three appointments. Because the procedure is non-invasive, patients can experience pain and symptom relief without the risk of true surgery.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is ideal for many patients, and can often result in a complete and comprehensive recovery from pain and other symptoms.
