Last season, the Miami Heat’s elite shooting guard Dwayne Wade was allowed to rest his damaged knees due to presence of LeBron James. For 28 games, Wade was not participating on the court but in a “maintenance program” designed by trainers to keep him healthy for the playoffs. This season, however, the Heat is without the presence of James, pushing Wade to become the team’s consistent shooting guard. Wade was originally following a specific plan that involved shockwave therapy to prepare his body for a strong playoff run while also strengthening his knees for future seasons. He and the Heat are looking forward to see the extensive effects of the OssaTron shockwave therapy.
Shockwave therapy is a treatment commonly used to treat various injuries and conditions, particularly plantar fasciitis in the feet.

Shockwave therapy is a new treatment option designed to treat bone conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, and others. Shockwave therapy uses high intensity sound waves that are directed to the affected tissues of the body with pinpoint accuracy. The effects are very beneficial, leading to a production of collagen fibers, eliminating inflammation.
Who Benefits from Shockwave?
Shockwave is recommended for patients suffering from heel pain and associated problems. Heel pain is a common condition which can be caused by obesity, overexertion, and spending a substantial amount of time on hard floors with your feet exposed and unsupported.
Fast and Easy
The therapy is actually a simple process that can leave patients feeling better the very next day. Shockwave therapy is not as dramatic as it sounds. It enables more blood flow to effected areas, attacking the source of the problem so treatment lasts for a long time.
Treatment & Recovery Time
Shockwave treatment will enable your feet to recover quickly. This is especially important since surgery is not required. It is cost effective and does not require the use of anesthesia. This treatment is a better option to surgery, since it is proven safe.
