Reduces Chronic Pain

The sensation of “pain” is modulated by the presence of “Sub-stance 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

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

Common conditions that can be treated with Shockwave Theraphy

Painful schoulder, Jumperis knee, Tennis elbow, Heel spur, Plantar fasciitis, Insertional pain, Chronic tendinopathy, Medial tibial stress sydndrome, Calcifications ,Hip pain

Release Inflammation

Research has been shown that mast cells are necessary to reverse chronic inflammation.When healing is dormant,these cells are not active. Mast cells can be awakened by being stimulated with Shockwave Theraphy

Release Trigger Points

Shockwave Theraphy can help resolve pain in chronic pain patients who tried everything from massage to chiropractic to physiotheraphy to resolve resistant trigger points. Shockwave Theraphy’s acoustic energy can unblock calcium pump and reserve metabolic crisis in the muscle cells,releasing therefore the trigger points

Stimulates Collagen

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

Absolutely amazing! I’m so glad that I found a place where I felt comfortable and Ramy does excellent work!

Couldn’t be happier with my experience! 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
