Choice Chiropractic is proud to be one of the only Chiropractic Clinics in the Ventura County offering Shockwave (Radial Pressure Wave) Therapy. Shockwave is a revolutionary new treatment utilizing acoustic wave technology that generates oscillations in the tissue. These oscillations penetrate about 2 inches into the body and stimulates metabolic activity which reduces muscle pain and aches, increases blood flow, and activates connective tissue repair.
