What Is Shockwave Therapy and How Can It Help You?

Shockwave Therapy is a new high tech, non-invasive form of treatment which has been shown to be highly effective in treating chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment. Clinical research has shown that there is a 70-85% chance that Shockwave will improve your condition. Large clinical trials have shown that there are no series of side effects or complications to this treatment

What Is the Difference From Radial vs Focal Shockwave?

Focused and Radial shockwaves differ not only in regard to their physical properties and mode of generation, but also in terms of the magnitude of the standard parameters (pressure amplitude, pulse duration, impact) used and the therapeutic tissue penetration depths achieved. The focal shockwave machine because of completely different technology are much more costly than the Radial.

Research has shown that there is approximately a 70-85% success rate for improvement in outcomes in using shockwave therapy.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwaves are short and intense energy waves that travel faster than the speed of sound. Shockwave therapy works by passing shockwaves into the affected tissues, this causes microtrauma, increases blood flow, and stimulates an acute inflammatory response, aiding and stimulating the healing process.

Does Shockwave Therapy Hurt?

There is usually only a small amount of discomfort during each Shockwave therapy treatment, but it really does depend on the level of pain a person is currently experiencing within that given area. The treatment lasts just 10 minutes, and the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session. However, having some pain during the treatment illustrates that shockwaves are having a positive effect.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

While improvements are often seen after the first session, the effectiveness of the treatment is cumulative. For full effectiveness the average treatments required is between 3-9 sessions undertaken a week apart.

Most patients experience very positive outcomes after third sessions.
