Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Treatment for Musculoskeletal Conditions

Shockwave therapy is available at the office of Dr. David Wheatcroft, a technique that treats pain with low energy shockwaves. Using sound or acoustic pressure on the compromised tissue, shockwave therapy treats immediate pain and discomfort while also stimulating the healing process deep within the tissue. The therapy is non-invasive and works on a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, especially those areas involving major connective tissue attached to bone.

  • Plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and Achilles tendonitis
  • Patellar tendonitis, jumper’s knee and shin pain

This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by the micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.

Years of research have gone into the development of the Impulse Instrument® to create gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages. Some of the benefits of this device include:

  • Extreme Speed: Impulse® is twice as fast as other adjusting instruments and 100 times faster than manual chiropractic adjustments. The gentle thrust is faster than the body’s tendency to tighten up and resist the adjustment.
  • Controlled Force: Impulse® has three different force settings for different parts of the body and to treat patients of all ages. The controlled low force thrust of Impulse® make treatments comfortable.
  • Frequency Tuned Waveform: Impulse® is specifically tuned to the natural frequency of the body that joins, muscles and nerves respond to, optimizing results for patients.
