  • Other types of musculoskeletal pain

ADVANTAGES OF SHOCKWAVE THERAPY:

  • Decreases Inflammation

  • Forms new blood vessels

  • Stimulates natural healing

  • Increases mobility

  • Stimulates stemcell production

  • Non-invasive procedure

  • No risk of infections or other complications

  • Takes only a few minutes per session

  • Effective for numerous conditions

  • Helps you avoid surgeries and medications

  • Decreases pain very quickly

  • No harsh side effects or downtime

  • Breaks down calcium deposits

Treatment consists of 3-5 sessions over 5 weeks and full healing can take up to 3 months. Each treatment is 15 minutes or less with minimal downtime needed after each session. Only 3 contraindications to treatment: pregnancy, cancer in the treatment area, and cortisone shot within the last 6 weeks or ibuprofen use that day.

Q & A

POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS?

The most commonly reported adverse events related to Shockwave Therapy are temporary local pain, and in extreme cases intolerance, petechiae, local erythema, and hematomas.

DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?

Although slight bouts of discomfort may be present during its treatment, the intensity of Shockwave therapy procedures can be easily adjusted. Acoustic wave emissions also typically only last around 5 minutes, so patients will have an easy time tolerating any pain.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

Because the treatments are progressive, patients will usually be all set for recovery after just 3-5 sessions. Of course, the exact number of Shockwave therapy sessions will depend on the body’s overall response. Full healing will continue to take place over 12 weeks. 

WILL THERE BE PAIN POST-TREATMENT?

Within 2-4 hours after treatment, patients may experience some mild discomfort in the treated areas, but no intense pain.

WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Although patients will experience immediate pain relief after the treatment, they should avoid any strenuous activities for at least 3 days after each session.

ShockWave Therapy is a non-invasive regenerative therapy that accelerates healing in as little as 3 sessions. It utilizes high-energy acoustic waves to promote healing and repair of a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain.

ShockWave stimulates the body’s natural healing response by:

  • Increasing blood flow to reduce inflammation, disrupting pain signals, and stimulating the release of natural painkillers in the body. This can lead to significant pain relief, even in cases where other treatments have failed.

  • Breaking down scar tissue and relaxing muscle spasms, increased pain-free range of motion is noticed almost immediately after treatment.

  • Stimulating your body’s own production of stem cells, joint and tissue repair is now available without surgery or injections. Research validates the effectiveness of ShockWave therapy and shows very successful treatment rates.

  • Promoting nerve regeneration, helping protect against neuropathy, and neuronal degeneration.
