What is Shockwave Therapy and the Technology Behind This System of Care

During Shockwave therapy, your chiropractor uses a device that sends out high-energy soundwaves in small bursts. These pulses can penetrate various tissues, including connective tissue, muscles, and ligaments. The pulses reach the cells of a particular area of your body – one that’s likely in pain – and stimulates them. 

When cellular stimulation occurs, it encourages healing in the bones, muscles, and connective tissues.
