Shockwave Therapy is a very effective treatment used for tendon problems and trigger points. Shockwave is the application of a high-energy acoustic pulse generated by a pneumatic compressor. Shockwave works by increasing circulation to the injured tissue and breaking apart chronic scar tissue. Shockwave has been proven to be 80-90% effective for tendon problems like plantar fasciitis, tennis/golfers elbow, and calcific rotator cuff tendonitis and frozen shoulder. Shockwave can also be very effective for chronic trigger points.
