Reduces Chronic Pain

The sensation of “pain” is modulated by the presence of “substance P”, a neurotransmitter in the nervous system that processes pain. Higher level of substance P is found in chronic pain patients. It can be dispersed through the help of Shockwave Therapy.

Stimulates Collagen

Heeling tissue also requires a certain type of foundation to thrive: collagen. Collagen is the gel that unites healthy tissues together. Without it, the surrounding structures collapse and scar tissue develops. Shockwave therapy can accelerate pro collagen synthesis.

Dissolves Calcifications

Sometimes chronic tendinopathies can result in calcium deposits in the tendons of affected muscles, resulting in painful calcific tendinopathies, heel spurs, etc. The high amplitude sonic waves of Shockwave therapy assist in treating these conditions by increasing the body’s ability to reabsorb calcium.

Create New Blood Vessels

Damaged tissue requires oxygenated blood and necessary repair cells. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary microruptures and new blood vessel formation in tendon bone and muscle

Release Inflammation

Research has shown that mast cells are necessary to reverse chronic inflammation. When healing is dormant, these cells are not active. Mast cells can be stimulated and awoken with Shockwave Therapy.

Release Trigger Points

Shockwave Therapy can help resolve pain in chronic pain patients who tried everything to resolve resistant trigger points. Shockwave Therapy’s acoustic energy can unblock calcium pumps and reverse metabolic crisis in the muscle cells, therefore releasing the trigger points.

Absolutely amazing! I’m so glad that I found a place where I felt comfortable and Ramy does excellent work! This was my first time going to see a chiropractor so I was very nervous and skeptics, but they did not disappoint one bit! Excellent customer service and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t be happier with my experience! Read on Google

I was suffering from severe pain around my neck and down to my back for a year, which was caused by hard physical work and incorrect lifestyle. The pain had limited my activities considerably. Prior to me, my family had a very satisfactory experience with the Clinic, and were especially talking about Dr. Maryam Hassanzadeh's expertise, experience, and devotion to ... Read on Google

As an athlete, I've been seeing Ghaith for a hip impingement injury that was restricting me from sports/workouts. Ghaith helped me get back in the action! Its always a pleasure seeing him, as he's friendly & enthusiastic, he genuinely enjoys explaining the mechanics of the injury and discussing the big picture theory (which I love as a bit of a nerd & athlete). Thanks Ghaith & Kent Chiro-Med! Read on Google
