The Four Greatest Shockwave Therapy Benefits

shockwave therapy benefits

Leading medical practitioners specializing in a wide variety of disciplines, such as podiatrists, chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, and physiotherapists, have been using shockwave therapy to great success in treating their patients for a variety of issues.

Here are four shockwave therapy benefits that show why.

Non-Surgical and Drug-Free

Shockwave therapy treats injuries without the need for drugs or surgery by enhancing the body’s natural healing processes.

Using a handheld device, a practitioner can target an affected area with strong energy pulses over short periods of time. These pulses create micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. As a result, cells in the body that are responsible for healing bone and tissue are stimulated.

And there are no side effects.


Shockwave therapy has been shown in clinical trials to provide results such as:

  • 91% improvement for overuse injury pain
  • 83% improvement for calcific shoulder pain
  • 90% improvement in heel pain
  • 80% improvement in elbow pain
  • 88% improvement in knee pain
  • 80% improvement for myofascial trigger points


In addition to these results, shockwave therapy can also treat the following indications:

  • Tendinopathies
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bone spurs
  • IT band syndrome
  • Scar tissue
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Turf toe
  • Tennis elbow
  • TMJ
  • Cellulite
  • Shin splints
  • Hip bursitis
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • And more
