⚙️ How Does Shockwave Work?
Shockwave Therapy creates Radial Pressure Waves and was first introduced as a medical treatment 20 years ago to eliminate kidney stones. It was discovered that one side effect from treatment was accelerated tissue healing in the area. The acoustic energy created by Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment method for long-term tendon injuries with very few side effects.
The pressure waves penetrate the tissue and reduce pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals (Gate Control Theory). It also increases cell metabolism and promotes the release of pain and inflammatory inhibiting substances. Revascularization of the area occurs with new blood flow promoting tissue healing and regeneration.
🔬 Does Shockwave Hurt?
I can be uncomfortable at times as it is applied directly to the injured area. However, it is usually well tolerated. The injured area will normally feel better after a treatment and then may become sore 24-48 hours post treatment. The soreness should dissipate over the following 24-48 hours and before your next treatment.

🤗 What should you expect from your first Chiropractic visit?
The first appointment will consist of a comprehensive assessment (physical and medical history), along with a diagnosis and treatment plan. Manual adjustments may be performed if declared a candidate for treatment by your Chiropractor. Your first adjustment will be minimal to best assess your tolerance and rate of recovery capability. Depending upon the diagnosis, it may also be recommended to seek other treatment such as massage or physiotherapy as these alternative forms of treatment greatly compliment one another. You may also be given stretches or home exercises to aid in recovery. Rest assured, there is always time to ask questions and discuss your health concerns and you will never feel rushed as your health is our number one priority.
Chiropractic manipulations have been proven to help restore mobility and tissue healing which can prevent re-injury to a specific area of the body. Chiropractic treatment also helps to reduce or eliminate acute or chronic pain and can improve function and performance of the spine and body.
Our Chiropractors at Genuine Athletics & Rehabilitation will help you improve your well-being and get you back to feeling your best through chiropractic care. The team will provide you with the highest levels of clinical expertise and unparalleled, personalized, one-on-one care in a comfortable and inviting environment. There are several ways of adjusting used by these chiropractors including gentle methods, massage techniques and the Activator® or Impulse adjusting instrument, which are a low-force method. We can even use heat to relax your muscles before beginning, so that you feel more comfortable. The “cracking” or “popping” noise you hear during a chiropractic session is no cause for concern. It is simply nitrogen air released when the joints are properly aligned.
