Shockwave Therapy – NEW at Riverside Sports Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical device used in Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, and Sports Medicine to
relieve pain and restore the function of tendon, ligament and muscle.

Shockwave is an acoustic wave which is delivered to the painful tissue with the use of a handheld
device. The wave relieves pain and provides the energy necessary to initiate the regenerative response
of tendon, ligament and muscle.

The medical effects of Shockwave Therapy include new blood vessel formation, decrease of chronic
inflammation, stimulation of collagen production, destruction of calcified fibroblasts, decrease in pain
