Effective Shockwave Therapy in Bay City, MI

Noninvasive Shockwaves to Heal Faster & Feel Better

Soft tissue and joint pain can debilitate anyone, from those who sit at a desk for extended periods to those who run marathons—or do both. Finding relief is critical to your lifestyle. Shockwave therapy can help. 

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), sometimes called Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), is a highly effective, state-of-the-art, conservative remedy for damage within the joints and tissues. Our Bay City chiropractic clinic provides shockwave therapy to many different kinds of patients, and we’ve seen the excellent results firsthand. 

If you’re suffering from chronic pain, motion loss, stiffness, or any other musculoskeletal discomfort, let us perform a comprehensive exam to determine whether shockwave therapy can benefit you.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a proven non-surgical procedure that has been offered to patients for nearly 15 years. It effectively treats chronic soft tissue conditions and musculoskeletal disorders, making it an ideal complement to chiropractic care for various complaints.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

ESWT uses high-energy acoustic waves delivered to the skin via a transducer with a topical gel. These waves activate circulation, break down scar tissue, and promote new cell growth, leading to faster healing. Treatment sessions typically last between five and 15 minutes.

Are There Side Effects from Shockwave?

Temporary swelling and tenderness at the treatment site are normal due to the body's healing response. These side effects are minimal, and many patients report significant pain relief after just one session.


When Will I See Results?

Results vary depending on the individual and the condition treated. After an initial consultation and exam, we can advise you on the number of sessions needed.

You’re unique, and so is your injury and how your body responds to it. Some conditions require only a couple of treatments, while others need five or six.
