Focused Shockwave Pain Therapy

Do you suffer from chronic pain and have tried countless treatments without finding relief? If so, you may be a candidate for our Focused Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, highly effective treatment option for individuals with chronic pain caused by conditions such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and calcifying tendinitis. Our Shockwave therapy helps treat a wide range of pain and discomfort issues, including arthritis pain, neck/back/knee pain, shoulder/elbow pain, plantar fasciitis, bunion pain, and sport-related injury. Also, it improves other medical conditions such as prostate enlargement, erectile dysfunction, and women's urinary incontinence.

 

What is Shockwave Therapy? Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge medical treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate the healing process in damaged tissue. This non-invasive therapy is performed by a trained medical professional and is designed to reduce pain and promote healing by increasing blood flow to the affected area.

 

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work? The high-energy sound waves generated by shockwave therapy penetrate deep into the affected tissue, promoting the release of growth factors that help to stimulate the healing process. This increased blood flow helps reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and encourage new tissue growth.

Who is a Good Candidate for Shockwave Therapy? Shockwave therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals with chronic pain caused by conditions such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and calcifying tendinitis. It is also a suitable option for individuals who have not found relief from traditional pain management treatments such as medications, physical therapy, and surgery.

What Can I Expect During a Shockwave Therapy Session? Shockwave therapy sessions are performed in a medical office and typically last between 20 to 30 minutes. The medical professional will apply the shockwave device to the affected area during the session. You may feel a tapping or pulsing sensation during the therapy, but most patients do not experience significant discomfort.

 

What are the Benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

  • Non-invasive: Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require surgery or the use of pain-relieving medications.

  • Practical: Shockwave therapy significantly reduces chronic pain and promotes healing in damaged tissue.

  • Quick: Most shockwave therapy sessions last only 20 to 30 minutes and do not require any downtime or recovery time.

  • Safe: Shockwave therapy is a safe treatment option with a low risk of side effects.
