If you’re an athlete, you dread an injury or condition that can sideline you for a season: a pulled hamstring, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, or Achilles tendon tear, for example. If you’re not an athlete but you’ve been in an accident, you know how long and painful the recovery can be for back, neck, shoulder or other neuromuscular injuries.

Call or book an appointment online today with Dr. Streeter to see how Pressure Wave/Shockwave technology can benefit you.
Modern technology is changing the way physicians treat neuromuscular pain. Instead of surgery requiring lengthy post-op recovery time, a new procedure, Pressure Wave/Shockwave technology, heals damaged soft tissue.
The technique is successfully addressing acute and chronic pain. It’s a new way to treat sports injuries and many other painful soft tissue injuries. According to physician testimonials, professional football and baseball teams are using the technology with good results.
Pressure wave therapy unleashes high-energy sound waves on painful parts of your body. Dr. Streeter uses a patented device that delivers pulses of energy to the painful area. The pulses create and then bursts bubbles within the soft tissue. The reaction stimulates the cells in your body that are responsible for healing connective tissue. It loosens tight, knotted tissue from your injury. The treatment enhances blood circulation and helps renew damaged tissue.
Pressure wave technology nonsurgically treats a variety of soft tissue problems such as overuse injuries in athletes or injuries from accidents. The technology activates damaged muscle and connective tissue. Treatment covers the following body parts, which include most of your body:
