Shockwave is a treatment that goes alongside a Chiropractor visit.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Used primarily in frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis and tendonitis. Can also reduce trigger points in muscle and help wound healing.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Shockwave machine releases a series of low energy acoustic wave pulsations into the injured area. This process creates increased blood flow to the injured area which therefore speeds up wound healing. Generally the treatment is once a week for approx. 3 weeks with a later follow up.
