Degeneration and Injury are the 2 Common Causes of Pain. Shockwave Therapy can help.
If you’re feeling pain on a regular basis, it’s possible that it’s a result of either degeneration or injury. It’s very common for one (or both) of these two things to happen over the course of our lives, and often, an untreated injury can lead to accelerated degeneration down the line.
Whether you’re physically active or live a primarily sedentary lifestyle, it’s impossible to avoid injuries! Injuries can be caused by daily activities, sports, exercise, and even sitting or remaining stationary. When injuries occur and don’t recover properly, or are in the process of recovery, they can become inflamed and painful, and reduce your ability to move and interact with the world in the way that you’re used to.
Common injuries that we treat with shockwave therapy include tendonitis, neuropathy, scar tissue, overuse injuries, top-of-the-foot pain, heel pain, frozen shoulder, Morton’s neuroma, and many, many more!
Degeneration occurs when a part of the body, often a joint or cartilage, begins to deteriorate. This can happen due to overuse or underuse, nutritional deficiencies, age, and genetic predispositions. Common examples of degeneration that we treat with shockwave therapy are arthritis, bone spurs, disc issues, joint pain, hand and finger stiffness, knee pain, knee stiffness, and much more.
