Shockwave Therapy Q & A

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a noninvasive treatment that uses low energy acoustic wave pulsations to trigger your body’s innate healing response. It’s a great way to achieve lasting results without the risks and recovery time of surgery and has numerous applications. 

Shockwave Therapy systems use compressed air to create kinetic energy, which is then moved into a transmitter on the treatment handpiece and delivered deep into your body’s tissues. Your body responds promptly to these sound waves and begins creating new cells almost immediately.

Treatments aren’t painful and don’t require any advance preparation or significant recovery time. A degree of soreness in the treatment area is normal after sessions, but there’s no need for anesthesia or restricted activities after treatments. 

What kinds of benefits can Shockwave Therapy create?

Shockwave Therapy is a popular treatment option in many sports medicine and orthopedic practices and is now becoming widely available in other medical settings, including medical aesthetics.

The physiological changes created by Shockwave Therapy include new cellular growth and tissue repair. Many people also report a reduction in pain and improved joint mobility. 

These are just some of the benefits researchers have noted after Shockwave Therapy:

  • New blood vessel formation.
  • Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts.
  • Trigger point release.
  • New collagen production.
  • Chronic inflammation reversal.

Many of these changes help reduce pain and enhance function in the treatment areas.
