What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a modality that uses high energy pulses of acoustic energy to increase local circulation and breakdown calcifications at the site.


We treat a wide variety of conditions including plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinitis, and much more! 

Shockwave is used by Mayo Clinic to treat 

  • tendinopathies
  • fasciopathies
  • soft tissue conditions


Benefits of Shockwave Therapy in Prairie Village

Shockwave therapy promotes increased blood flow at the tendon-bone junction and stimulates cell proliferation, collagen synthesis, and tissue remodeling. It is great for patients who have failed traditional PT or injections.

I love Empower Physical Therapy & Performance! Each and every person is knowledgable and compassionate! Julie has been my therapist for scar tissue issues since my double mastectomy. She is beyond amazing!! She explains complicated scientific terms is understandable ways. She has also helped me with heel/ankle, shoulder, and hip issues along the way. When I’ve needed a physician referral, Julie has sent me to the best doctors in KC! She sees post surgical patients so she knows who’s the best in town. I highly recommend Empower!!!!

The team at Empower is fantastic! I’ve been working with Sydney and she is knowledgeable, curious, and very friendly. Each individual I have encountered has been nothing but professional. The location is perfect for me, with easy parking. I highly recommend Empower for your PT needs.

“I received 6 sessions of Shockwave therapy over a 2 month period. Prior to receiving treatment, I had already undergone surgery, 2 rounds of physical therapy, and chiropractic care with no success. Having been told by multiple physicians that I would likely never run again, I was skeptical about the treatment. I noticed a difference in my knees after the 3rd session. It has now been 4 months since my last session, and I could not be happier with my progress. Though mild pain is still present, my knees have strengthened to where I can jog and walk with mild symptoms. I am so thankful that I can keep up with my kids again!”
