SoftWave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy in Westerville OH is a modality used for the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.


CONDITIONS TREATED BY SHOCKWAVE THERAPY in Westerville OH

Aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic painful conditions such as:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Retrocalcaneal Bursitis
  • Lateral Epicondylosis
  • Medial Epicondylosis
  • Calcific Tendonitis
  • Patellar Tendinosis
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Chronic Stress/Non-union Fractures
  • Erectile Dysfunction

Mechanical pressure and tension forces on the tissue have been shown to increase cell membrane permeability, thereby increasing microscopic circulation and metabolism within the treated area. This promotes healing and may result in the dissolution of calcific deposits.

The pressure front creates behind it a “cavitation bubble” which are small empty cavities created behind a pressure front. When the bubbles collapse they create a resultant force that has a mechanical impact on the treated tissue. This force helps to break down calcific deposits embedded in damaged tissue.

Shock waves stimulate osteoblasts, cells responsible for bone healing and new bone production.

Shock waves stimulate fibroblasts, cells responsible for healing connective tissue such as tendons.


Diminishes pain by two mechanisms

  1. Hyper stimulation anesthesia – local nerve endings are overwhelmed with so many stimuli that their activity diminishes resulting in a short-term reduction in pain.
  2. Gate-control mechanism – whereby local nerves are stimulated to re-calibrate perception of pain and result in a longer-term reduction in pain.
