Shockwave is an incredibly effective tool for reducing pain and accelerating the healing process. The shock is a physical sound wave rather than electrical. This shockwave triggers a release in scarred or fibrotic tissue. By increasing the metabolic activity in the area, we can stimulate and accelerate the healing process.
Although this tool shares a lot of overlap with k-laser therapy, the applications are different, and we always provide the most up-to-date and current modalities for our San Diego patients. The K laser is great for patients unable to withstand much physical touch or pressure while shockwave can block the transmission of pain and can effectively break down scar tissue and even calcification.
