Shockwave Therapy at Laguna Bay Chiropractic - Revolutionising Pain Relief and Mobility Restoration

At Laguna Bay Chiropractic in Noosaville, Queensland, we are proud to offer Shockwave Therapy, an innovative treatment that utilises high-energy acoustic waves to target and heal painful musculoskeletal conditions. This non-invasive therapy is known for its rapid effects on pain relief and mobility restoration, making it an excellent choice for conditions that are typically difficult to treat.

How Shockwave Therapy Works

Shockwave therapy involves the delivery of high-energy pulses to the affected areas, which propagate as acoustic waves. These waves carry high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic, and chronic conditions, promoting regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues.

The Benefits:

Shockwave therapy is not only effective but also affordable, especially when compared to other treatment options for chronic conditions. Each session at Laguna Bay Chiropractic is priced to provide accessibility without compromising on quality.

New Blood Vessel Formation

The shockwaves induce micro-ruptures in capillaries in tendons and bones, encouraging new blood vessel growth, which improves blood supply and oxygenation, resulting in faster healing processes.

Reversing Chronic Inflammation

It helps normalise inflammation by stimulating the body’s natural inflammatory response, aiding healing.

Breaking Up Calcifications

Effectively breaks down calcium build-up in soft tissues, which is then cleared by the body, alleviating pain.

Pain Reduction

Reduces concentrations of Substance P, a neurotransmitter associated with persistent and intense pain, leading to pain relief and reduced oedema. 

Mobility Restoration

Helps restore mobility by breaking down calcifications and leading to tissue regeneration.
