At Nevada Spine and Disc, our highly experienced Chiropractors help our patients with a variety of ailments, using a wide range of treatment and therapy options. One of the therapies used to relieve the pain of chronic ailments without the need for injections or surgery is Shockwave Therapy (SWT). Not only do we see patients find relief from chronic conditions, but have prolonged relief, especially when combined with other treatments.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy directly to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues experiencing any range of pain. These may be subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy used promotes regeneration and the reparation processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Acoustic waves generated by the Shockwave trigger biological effects which lead to faster and long-term healing and regeneration of the tissue. Shockwave therapy (SWT) covers a wide range of indications.

There are a number of different types of Shockwave Therapy (SWT) options to focus their benefits directly or in combination with other other therapies and treatments.
