What is Sonocur Shockwave Therapy and How Does it Work?
Sports related injuries can have a devastating impact on a person’s ability to participate in the things they love! An injury can not only greatly hinder your ability to perform at your best, but also to complete everyday tasks.
Often after suffering an injury, surgery seems like the only option for a full recovery but it isn’t.
Alternative solutions, such as Sonocur Shockwave Therapy, can help you heal without surgery.
What is Sonocur Shockwave therapy?
A non-evasive therapy treatment, Shockwave therapy uses shockwaves to regenerate tissue and heal muscle. It also helps to break down scar tissue, a crucial element in the healing process.
The use of low energy shock means that the process is relatively pain-free and can be done without anesthesia. It works by sending acoustic shockwaves into the bone or soft tissue, rejuvenating the area on a cellular level. With repeated treatments, the controlled re-injuring of the site allows for regeneration of blood vessels and bone cells.

What are the effects of Sonocur Shockwave Therapy?
Researchers working with shockwave therapy have stated that it can:
- Cause cell membranes to change, thereby inhibiting the sensation of pain
- Allow chemical compounds to form which help with the reduction of pain
- Increase blood supply in the treated area, which can help speed the healing process
Since the treatment works to regenerate new blood and bone cells, shockwave therapy heals many of the common soft tissue injuries experienced by athletes.
Shockwave therapy is not surgical, so you can return to work immediately following treatment or can continue playing the sports you enjoy. Shockwave therapy eliminates the chance of post-surgical scarring, as well as removing the risk for potential nerve damage or post-operative complications and risks.

Unlike surgery, which almost always requires a period of rest and reduced activity, shockwave therapy doesn’t require this kind of downtime, so you don’t need to take time off work to recover from it.
Also, because shockwave therapy is relatively pain free, you are able to enjoy the benefits of treatment without the pain and care needed for post-op recovery.
Sometimes surgery is the only option when you are dealing with a sports related, soft tissue injury.
However, alternatives such as Sonocur Shockwave Therapy give you the choice to undergo treatment that not only reduces recovery time but also gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you are receiving professional and efficient treatment without operative and post-operative risks.
