Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT combines radial pressure waves, focused shockwave treatment, and vibrational therapy. At Functional Health Institute, we use this technology to deliver a simple, non-surgical treatment for chronic musculoskeletal problems, persistent pain, or joint issues.
Shockwave Therapy can be used to improve damaged connective tissue and cellular damage. Other benefits of Shockwave Therapy are:
- Reduces chronic pain
- Increases blood circulation
- Accelerates tissue repair
- Stimulates cell growth
- Promotes collagen production
- Reduces calcification
Shockwave technology accelerates the body’s healing process by stimulating the metabolism and boosting blood circulation to restore damaged tissue. When the energy pulses created by this technology are applied to the affected area, the vibrations create small vapor-filled cavities that expand and burst. The force penetrates tissue and stimulates the cells in the body that heal bone and connective tissue.
