Look no further than Shockwave Therapy at Dearborn Health, a modality that’s revolutionizing care for various conditions.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

A powerful therapy for chronic musculoskeletal conditions, this high-energy modality uses sound waves to promote healing in soft tissues. By breaking the sound barrier, it creates shock waves that penetrate deep into tissues, breaking up calcified tissue and adhesions to promote healing. It’s important to note that shockwave, unlike laser therapy, uses sound energy instead of light to stimulate healing.

A chronic pain solution, it addresses lingering injuries by triggering an increase in metabolism and blood circulation in the affected area. Once activated, your body’s
self-healing mechanisms take control and speed recovery.

This therapy is primarily used for chronic musculoskeletal conditions, which have proven resistant to other therapies. It helps break down scar tissue and calcifications, and promotes regeneration of bones, tendons and soft tissues. It has also been shown to help soft tissue injuries by stimulating muscle and tissue repair.

Some problems we have helped with this modality include

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Medial and lateral epicondylitis (golfer’s and tennis elbow)

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Morton’s neuroma

  • Chronic stress fractures (e.g., shin splints)
  • Calcific tendonopathy
  • And more

The benefits are numerous. Patients have reported reduced pain and irritation, improved range of motion, and increased functionality. When used in conjunction with other therapies, such as exercise therapy, patients achieve optimal results.

During the Session

Several consecutive sessions are necessary at first for best results, especially for chronic conditions. They typically last between five and ten minutes, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule. You may feel some discomfort during therapy, but most patients find it tolerable, and the level is adjustable. Afterward, you may experience some soreness, but this is temporary and should subside quickly.
