What is Focused Shockwave Therapy?
Focused Shockwave Therapy is an advanced and effective non-invasive treatment method approved by the FDA.
This proprietary technology uses high-energy sound waves to target and stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
This advanced treatment option accelerates healing, reduces pain, and improves overall foot function.
Focused Shockwave Therapy is used as an alternative to traditional treatment methods in podiatry, including injections and surgery. It improves the regenerative potential within the human body, rather than further damaging an area that has degenerated because of poor blood flow, tissue injury, overuse, or weakness.
When performed by a qualified healthcare professional, Focused Shockwave Therapy treats the root cause of your pain or injury and improves blood flow, thus improving your mobility and quality of life with minimal risks or side effects.
