Shockwaves, also known as acoustic waves or sound waves, are one of the most efficient ways to dissipate energy. Using a revolutionary technique, we can introduce acoustic pulses to painful, inflamed, or weak areas of the body to improve blood flow and stimulate natural healing. Whether you are suffering from mobility issues, chronic pain, or sexual dysfunction, shockwave therapy is an incredibly safe, effective, and natural solution.

HOW Shockwave Therapy Works

Shockwave therapy is performed using a multi-application device that carries high-energy acoustic pulses to areas of the body afflicted by pain, inflammation, or poor circulation. As the wave hits the target area, it creates microtrauma within the tissue. This microtrauma triggers the body to release growth factors and produce collagen for healing. It also increases circulation and breaks up:

  • Fibrotic tissue
  • Scar tissue
  • Calcium build-up
  • Painful trigger points

FREQUENTLY Asked Questions

We understand that the term “shockwave” may sound a little intimidating, but the procedure uses no electricity, and most patients report no pain during their sessions. The sensation has been compared to a light tapping feeling, which could cause some discomfort depending on the sensitivity of the area being treated. If you are concerned about pain, we have a number of topical anesthetics and pain-reducing methods available for your comfort!

We will first palpate the target area to ensure precise delivery of your shockwave therapy. We will then apply a topical gel that will help efficiently transfer the acoustic waves. The shockwave device will touch your skin, and you will feel a mild tapping sensation. Treatments can take as little as five minutes, and you can go back to your daily activities with no downtime.

The number of treatments will vary depending on the condition that we are treating and your body’s healing response. Typically, the best results are achieved with 3–5 treatments, though patients often feel relief after just one session. We will discuss your treatment plan in depth during your visit, including the number of sessions you can expect to attend.
