shockwave therapy
Shockwave therapy - a non-surgical treatment of soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain.

Shockwave therapy, commonly referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (EWST) is a new treatment modality designed specifically to treat chronic tendon injuries.  Shockwave technology technology was originally developed for breaking up kidney stones, and was later modified for orthopedic uses.  Shockwave therapy is not electrical, rather a series of high energy acoustic pulses transmitted into the injured area of the body.  

How Shockwave Therapy Works
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. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and 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.

Each Shockwave treatment works to increase the metabolic activity around the site of pain or discomfort, stimulating the body’s healing process, thus reducing pain.  The standard Shockwave treatment involves the application of 2000 sonic pulses to the injured area for a short period of time.  These impulses reproduce the acute inflammatory reaction.  This brings new blood supply to the area and gives the body a second chance at healing the injury. Resolution of the injury is generally achieved in only 3 to 6 sessions.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically.

There are numerous benefits from Shockwave Therapy.

  • Non-Surgical
  • Minimal Side Effects *
  • Accelerated Healing
  • Ease Of Use
  • Affordable
  • Covered By Most Insurance Companies

The beneficial effects of Shockwave Therapy are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments. The therapy eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.

* The unwanted side effects of Shockwave therapy are quite minimal.  Some patients report redness at the site of treatment and rarely bruising.  These generally disappear within a few days.  We consider these side effects to be minimal when compared to the side effects of prolonged use of anti-inflammatory medications or multiple cortisone injections.
