Ever wonder why professional athletes heal so quickly? Team doctors consider a variety of therapies, from conservative to holistic to emerging, to get their patients back in the game. One such treatment that is endorsed by physicians across a variety of specialties is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). For the last 15 years, Perimeter Orthopaedics has been using shockwave therapy to help patients heal from a variety of conditions.
Shockwave Therapy is FDA approved and works by emitting high-energy pulses. These pulses of energy are delivered to the injured area using an applicator connected to the shockwave therapy device. The shockwaves activate the circulation of new blood and new nerve cells to the injured area. The pulses work by causing trauma to the tissue stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. The result is faster and more complete healing.
Shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment for many conditions.
