About Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy uses high-energy acoustic waves to generate accelerated tissue repair and growth in the affected area. Guided by a shockwave therapy applicator, these waves can be directed to the injured area to treat chronic conditions or injuries that cause severe pain. It can help issues affecting the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues throughout the body.
Studies show that the use of shockwave therapy can help ease trigger points that cause pain, reversing inflammation and promoting the production of new blood vessels and collagen. In one study, 90% of clients were satisfied with their treatment, and some reported a complete elimination of pain.
The benefits that our patients experience from shockwave therapy include:
- Noninvasive treatment
- No major side effects
- Less expensive than surgery
- Immediate relief from pain
- Treats various issues affecting the bones, tendons, and soft issues
The Treatment Process
During each treatment, acoustic waves will be transmitted through a wand-like device that comes in direct contact with the injured area. We will begin by identifying the injured area and applying a gel directly to the skin to assist in the transfer of the acoustic waves. Our therapist will then gently push the applicator against the treatment area.
The treatment process for shockwave therapy is simple, but can vary in duration depending on your specific condition and needs. Some injuries might see improvement after only a few treatments, while others may require weeks or even months of periodic sessions. Most patients require at least three to five treatments and each treatment is usually administered between three and ten days apart. This time frame may vary depending on how the tissues respond to shockwave therapy.
Although the treatment is not usually painful, some patients report discomfort in the area where the pain already exists. We are happy to adjust the level of the shockwaves that you receive to optimize your process and make it as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to help you on your journey towards a pain-free life.
