Adding Shockwave Therapy with Physical Therapy treatment increases your chance of success in resolving your shoulder pain or other injuries or problems. This combination also speeds up your recovery. You will get better faster! Requiring less overall therapy sessions.
Shockwave Therapy is the NEXT THING in triggering a healing response in our bodies. For numerous conditions like shoulder tendonitis, Golfer’s elbow, Plantar Fasciitis, and even erectile dysfunction and cellulite, Shockwave Therapy has a place in rebuilding injured tissues.
What type of professional should I look for?
The Physical Therapy profession has a broad range when treating orthopedic or spine and extremity problems. They are trained in soft tissue or advanced massage techniques as well as spinal and joint manipulations. Their background in exercise prescription for injured tissues is also extensive, making this profession a perfect addition with Shockwave Therapy.
When picking a Physical Therapist or PT clinic that is offering Shockwave Therapy make sure they have done further study or residency training in manual therapy. A PT treatment that is manual therapy based is entirely hands-on and you will notice an immediate improvement in mobility, feeling a release of tension and reduction of pain that lasts more than a day. If you don’t feel any different the next day, or your mobility is back to being limited, then you have just experienced a placebo effect. It felt good while it happened but it was not lasting.

Every treatment has a placebo effect built into it. Treatments that have a 'real' effect on our bodies will have a measurable change that lasts. You will continue to show improvement that is progressive.
If you or a loved one are struggling with an injury or problem that is not getting better, if you have tried other treatments without success or failed to make a full recovery, Tissue Regenerative Therapy is something you should try.
What should I expect with my treatment?
Tissue Regenerative Therapy starts with a detailed evaluation of your problem including imaging with diagnostic ultrasound to ‘see’ into your body. Your doctor may recommend hands-on treatments combined with exercises you can do on your own. Shockwave Therapy is safe and is NOT painful. Most conditions are treated successfully within 5 therapy sessions. By the 3rd Shockwave treatment most people feel a 70-80% reduction in pain. If the clinic you are going to only offers one Shockwave treatment session this is not enough. You should have some positive effect, but you will be missing out on what Shockwave can really do.
