    What is Shockwave Therapy?

    Non-Invasive Treatment That Brings Patients Back to Health Sooner

    Shockwave Therapy Benefits:

    • Non-invasive, non-surgical treatment.
    • No shockwave therapy side effects.
    • Accelerates healing.
    • Can be used by all healthcare professionals.
    • Affordable.
    • Coverage available from most insurance companies.

    How Shockwave Therapy Works

    We know shockwave therapy is effective – but how exactly does it work?

    Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.

    Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.

    In many instances, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

    Shockwave Therapy

    Shockwave therapy, an acoustic pressure wave is transmitted to the body tissue and, consequently, to the painful area. The pressure wave created at the point of contact transmits radially inside the patient’s body.

    Shockwave Therapy Treatments

    Shockwave therapy was initially introduced as a way to break down kidney stones without direct contact. It then evolved to treat non-healing bones by activating osteoblasts.

    Today it treats a wide range of medical conditions, including:

    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Achilles tendinopathy
    • Jumper’s knee (Patellar Tendonitis)
    • Treatment of tendinopathy
    • Hamstring muscle injuries
    • Myofascial trigger points
    • Bursitis
    • Stiff big toe (Hallux Rigidus)
    • Non-healing ulcers
    • Tendonitis
    • Scar tissue
    • Calcific rotator cuff tendonitis
    • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
    • Broken bones that have failed to heal (non-unions)
    • Shoulder pain
    • Tennis elbow
    • Heel spurs
    • Shin splints
    • Stress fractures
    • Enhancing bone healing
    • Muscle and connective tissue injuries
    • And more

    Shockwave Therapy Side Effects and Timeframes

    A shockwave is an intense, but very short, energy wave travelling faster than the speed of sound. Because it is so powerful, most patients who undergo shockwave treatment recover faster than those treated by other methods.

    Shockwave therapy sessions are usually 20-to-30 minutes long and provide successful relief and restore mobility painlessly. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment.

    Most patients require three-to-six sessions. There is no downtime for recovery.

    There are no shockwave therapy side effects. Treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, and joint pain.
