Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a breakthrough, noninvasive treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to quickly reduce pain and promote healing. ESWT allows damaged tissues to regenerate and heal faster versus other traditional treatments that you may have tried without success.
ESWT is one of the most advanced and highly effective treatment methods available and is based on a set of pressure waves that stimulate tissue metabolism, enhance blood circulation, break up scar tissue and calcifications, and accelerate the healing process.

Do I need a doctor’s referral?
No referral is needed for ESWT treatment. However, if we have not seen you before and do not know your medical history, the initial treatment session will be combined with an initial evaluation with one of our physical therapists to diagnose your pathology and determine the best approach for ESWT treatment. Afterwards, if only ESWT treatment sessions are needed, follow up appointments can be a short as 30-minutes!
What are the results?
- Pain relief, restored mobility, and improved quality of life
- In just a few sessions, you’ll be able to return to your favorite sport or activity!
