Shockwave Therapy

Richmond Spine & Rehab, located in Chesterfield, VA, offers specialized Shockwave Therapy under the expert care of Dr. Sheehan. This non-invasive treatment is designed to alleviate pain and promote healing in patients suffering from various musculoskeletal conditions. The primary symptoms that bring patients to Dr. Sheehan for Shockwave Therapy include soft tissue injuries, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow.

Soft tissue injuries encompass a range of issues such as muscle strains, ligament sprains, and damage to tendons or fascia. These injuries often result from overuse, acute trauma, or repetitive stress and can lead to significant pain and restricted mobility. Shockwave Therapy works by delivering high-energy sound waves to the affected area, stimulating blood flow, reducing inflammation, and accelerating the natural healing process.

Tendonitis, characterized by inflammation or irritation of a tendon, is another common condition treated with Shockwave Therapy at Richmond Spine & Rehab. Patients with tendonitis often experience pain and tenderness near the affected joint, which can severely limit their daily activities. Shockwave Therapy helps by breaking down scar tissue and calcifications within the tendon, promoting tissue regeneration and reducing pain.

Plantar fasciitis, a condition causing sharp, stabbing pain in the heel and bottom of the foot, is frequently seen in Dr. Sheehan's clinic. This pain is usually worse with the first steps in the morning or after long periods of standing. Shockwave Therapy provides relief by targeting the plantar fascia with acoustic waves, which enhance blood circulation and promote the repair of damaged tissue.

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is another condition effectively managed with Shockwave Therapy. This overuse injury results in pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow, often affecting individuals who engage in repetitive wrist and arm motions. Shockwave Therapy helps by reducing inflammation, breaking up adhesions, and stimulating the healing process, thereby restoring function and alleviating pain.

Shoulder pain, shockwave therapy can break up calcium deposits that form on the tendons in the shoulder joint, which is a common cause of shoulder pain. This can reduce pain and the need for medication during treatment and recovery. Ongoing treatments have also shown improvements in mobility, range of motion, and strength.

Overall, Richmond Spine & Rehab’s Shockwave Therapy offers a promising solution for patients struggling with chronic pain and mobility issues related to soft tissue injuries, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow. Dr. Sheehan’s expertise and the clinic’s commitment to patient care make it a trusted destination for effective pain management and rehabilitation in Chesterfield, VA.
