Accelerate Healing with Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful areas and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. The basic technology involved with extracorporeal shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people. Therapy sessions are short, usually 10-15 minutes in length, and provide successful relief of chronic pain and restore mobility painlessly. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment.
There are no side effects with this non-surgical treatment and it is available at a reasonable cost. Shockwave treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain.
75% – 95% Success Rate
Conditions That Can Be Treated By Shockwave Therapy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Low Back pain
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Scar Tissue Treatment
- Stress Fractures
- Non-Healing Ulcers
- Chronic Pain
- Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Hip Pain
- Among many others
Acoustic waves with high energy peak used in Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration. All of these processes are typically employed
simultaneously and are used to treat chronic, sub-acute and acute conditions.
- New Blood Vessel Formation
- Reversal of Chronic inflammation
- Stimulation of Collagen Production
- Dissolution of Calcified Fibroblasts
- Release of Trigger Points
- Non-Surgical Treatment
- No Side Effects
- Accelerated Healing
What to expect for a shockwave therapy treatment –
- The area to be treated is located during your initial examination by using your history, physical examination, and palpation in order to deliver the therapy precisely.
- Your therapist will position you so you are comfortable and the area being treated is accessible.
- Gel is applied to the area located in step 1. Use of gel is necessary to transfer the acoustic waves efficiently and smoothly.
- The Shockwave applicator is slightly pushed against the area to be treated and the start button is pressed.
- Will shockwave therapy help me?
- Does the treatment hurt?
- What should I wear for the treatment?
- How many treatments will I need?
- Will I feel any pain after the treatment?
Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their problems.
There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about 10-15 minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this
discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.
Wear loose-fitting clothing that will allow your therapist to access the area being treated. The shockwave therapy is applied directly to your skin. Your therapist will drape and cover you with linens, as needed.
The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response.The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (8-12) treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first
Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.
