Focused Shockwave Therapy in Chapel Hill, NC

Here at Ignite Wellness Chiropractic Center, we strive to stay up-to-date with the latest advances in natural pain and wellness solutions. For this reason, we are proud to announce that we now offer Storz Medical Focused Shockwave Therapy or Extracorpeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT).

This advanced regenerative therapy is non-invasive and drug-free.

Focused Shockwave technology can improve (and in some cases

eliminate) chronic conditions such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis, Achilles' tendonitis, and heel spurs

  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy/calcification and frozen shoulder

  • Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, and other tendinopathies in

        the forearm

  • Knee pain, knee arthritis, even "bone-on-bone" knees

  • Severe spinal arthritis, spinal stenosis

  • Greater trochanteric tendinopathy

  • Hand osteoarthritis and trigger finger

  • and much more!

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) introduces a highly specific and intense acoustic wave of short duration directly into the injured or diseased tissue. These specific and focused shock waves cause the body to release growth factors and increase blood flow to the affected area. Chronic conditions have been shown to have decreased blood flow and poor healing processes. ESWT accelerates healing within the body by increasing blood flow and stimulating cell metabolism so that the damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal. 


Originally shockwave therapy was made for disintegrating kidney stones. The therapy has been adapted for musculoskeletal conditions to allow complete regeneration and resolution of chronic conditions. And unlike the name suggests, shockwave therapy does not shock or hurt the patient. Many conditions only require 6 treatments over a 6 week period of time!
