It is a new, highly effective treatment whereby high-energy sound waves are applied to injured, degenerated, and/or painful areas of the body to dramatically reduce pain and increase mobility and function. This treatment accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation and cellular repair to regenerate damaged tissue. The healing energy wave created by this device penetrates tissues and stimulates stem cells and growth factors in the body that are responsible for muscle and connective tissue healing.
How are Treatments Performed?
Acoustic Wave or “True” Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT) is noninvasive and painless. Gel is applied to the treatment area and acoustic waves are then released over the treatment area.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on the condition that is being treated. In many cases, only 3-5 treatments are needed. Each treatment session takes between 10-15 minutes.
What Types of Results Are Expected?
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only one or two treatments. Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The technology has a high success rate per clinical studies. Patients treated report being pain-free and/or have a significant reduction in pain. ESWT can eliminate pain, restore mobility and improve a person’s quality of life. True acoustic wave therapy can also dramatically increase the results of other regenerative treatments.
What are the Possible Side Effects?
A truly amazing feat, this device has virtually no side effects. Patients can return to work immediately after treatment and there is typically no downtime. In rare cases, patients may get dizzy from the flashing light that occurs during treatment.
