A noninvasive treatment that promotes healing
Pain relief and mobility restoration.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy uses an acoustic wave that carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute and chronic conditions. Created by compressed air, this kinetic energy is transferred from the ESWT machine to the applicator into the tissue. The wave promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues. This process causes accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, as well as mobility restoration.
What is the process of Shockwave Therapy?
To deliver the therapy precisely, the doctor will use palpation to locate the area to be treated. Then, a sufficient amount of gel is applied to the area. The use of gel is necessary to transfer the acoustic waves efficiently and smoothly. The Shockwave applicator will be slightly pushed against the area throughout this treatment. This treatment will last about 10 to 20 minutes.
Patients might experience a slight discomfort during the treatment depending on the pain level the patient is already experiencing in the area. Typically patients will experience a reduced level of pain in their condition after the treatment, but mild and diffused pain may occur a few hours later, and this pain will subside after a day or so.
