Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy: Advanced Healing for Musculoskeletal Conditions at Atlas Spine Clinic

What is Shockwave Therapy?

If you’ve ever been on the mend after a sports injury or had a persistent discomfort that wouldn’t go away, you may have wished for some extra healing assistance. Shockwave therapy is here to help! It acts as a superhero for your body, reactivating its natural ability to rebuild new tissue. It’s also effective at relieving pain by nipping your nerves exactly at the location of the injury. The good news is that, despite its frightening moniker, most people find it merely mildly unsettling.

This treatment is frequently prescribed for patients suffering from sports injuries such as golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, or a strained hamstring. It’s also a good option for anyone suffering from soft tissue pain, such as that caused by plantar fasciitis – that annoying heel pain ailment. Consider shockwave therapy to be your dependable buddy on the way to recovery!

Which conditions are suitable for treatment with Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a fantastic treatment option that can really make a difference for a range of musculoskeletal issues. It’s especially helpful for those stubborn, long-lasting conditions that affect tendons and their connections to bone. Some of the conditions it can effectively address include:

  • Plantar fasciitis.
  • Achilles tendinopathy.
  • Retrocalcaneal bursitis.
  • Lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow
  • Medial epicondylitis or golfer’s elbow
  • Calcific tendonitis (like in the supraspinatus tendon).
  • Patellar tendinosis (commonly known as jumper’s knee).
  • Morton’s neuroma.
  • Chronic stress fractures or non-union fractures.

Our high-energy shockwave technology focuses the shockwave directly through tissue, causing several effects:

Tissue mechanical pressure and tension increase cell membrane permeability, microscopic circulation, and metabolism in the treated area. This promotes healing and may dissolve calcific deposits.

Pressure fronts create “cavitation bubbles”—small empty cavities. When bubbles collapse, they exert a mechanical force on tissue. Calcific deposits in damaged tissue are broken down by this force.

Shockwaves activate bone-healing and bone-forming osteoblasts, in addition it activate tendon-healing fibroblasts.

Reduces pain two ways. Hyperstimulation anesthesia reduces pain temporarily by overloading local nerve endings with stimuli. Gate-control mechanism—local nerves are stimulated to recalibrate pain perception and reduce pain over time.
