The mechanism by which ESWT might relieve pain associated with musculoskeletal conditions is thought to disrupt fibrous tissue with subsequent promotion of revascularization and healing of tissue. It has also been hypothesized that the shock waves may reduce the transmission of pain signals from the sensory nerves and/or stimulates healing (Huang, et al., 2000).
ESWT is becoming a more favorable treatment option for a variety conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders and wounds/soft tissue injuries, such as: shoulder tendinosis, achilles tendinosis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, patella tendinosis, and rotator cuff injuries.

Running is my favorite hobby. Chronic knee pain was keeping me from what I love. Old athletic injuries coupled with overuse left me with pain and stiffness in my knee. At times it was even painful to walk. After three shockwave treatments at Addison sports clinic my knee is virtually pain free. The first treatment I noticed a significant reduction in my pain along with increased mobility in my knee joint. Two weeks after completing three treatments I ran a half-marathon with no knee pain during the race or after. Shock wave therapy has helped me enjoy running again!

I am a regular cross fitter going to the box 5-6 times per week. Squats are my favorite lift. During one of my workouts, I began experiencing left knee pain. The pain persisted for a few weeks after. I tried rest, icing and modifications to my lifts. The pain was worsening, and I was concerned that it was going to prevent me from continuing what I loved doing throughout the week. I had been been seeing Dr. Jason for sports chiropractic care. During one of my maintenance treatment sessions, I told him about my knee. He did an examination and diagnosed me with runners knee. He explained shockwave therapy as a highly successful non invasive treatment option. I decided to try the therapy and was amazed at the results! My knee pain completely resolved and even felt stronger. I highly recommend this therapy to anyone looking for resolution to their chronic pain.

Golf has been my passion for years, however I developed really painful elbow symptoms about one year ago. After rest, ibuprofen, cortisone, physical therapy, chiropractic, and two trips to the orthopedist, I was pondering surgery. A friend mentioned shockwave therapy to me, and I will admit I was skeptical. After the consultation with Dr. Jason, I decided to try four weeks of treatment. It took two to three sessions to begin experiencing relief. After six sessions, my pain level reduced by 70-80%. This therapy is a game changer.
Jim, Marietta, GAI have been a chiropractic patient at Addison Sports Clinic for a year. Dr. Jason knew that I have been experiencing foot pain for over 15 years. Due to the nature of my job, I constantly experienced pain throughout the day. He suggested that I try shockwave therapy to relieve my plantar fasciitis. After 7 or 8 sessions, my pain level reduced by 80%. I highly recommend this treatment for anyone experiencing plantar fasciitis.
