Pressure Wave Therapy (Shockwave)
Pressure Wave (Shockwave) therapy uses strong pressure to interact with the tissue and painful spots accelerating tissue repair, cell growth, pain relief and mobility restoration. The high energy of the acoustic peaks promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
It’s no surprise that the benefits of pressure wave technology as a non-surgical way of treating a wide array of soft tissue conditions, is clearly becoming the most popular treatment.
It's non-invasive and effective.
Pressure Wave Therapy is effective on:
- Back Pain
- Pain Relief for various conditions
- Elbow Pain (Lateral & Medial)
- Tennis & Golfers Elbow
- Hip Pain
- Neck Pain
- Achilles Pain
- Stress Fractures
- Overuse Injuries
- Tendon Pain
- Toe Pain

What is ShockWave or Pressure Wave Technology?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and highly effective treatment method where high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
What conditions can be treated with ShockWave Technology?
Acute and Chronic pain such as: Knee, Heel, Foot, Ankle, Hamstring, Back, Neck, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand. It is also used on Sports injuries and other painful conditions.
How is the treatment performed?
Gel is applied to the injured area; pressure waves are then released through the applicator as it is moved over the treatment area.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions needed depends on the condition that is being treated. Each treatments session takes 10-15 minutes and can vary depending on the condition that is being treated. Treatment be 1 or 2 times per week.
What kind of results can I expect?
Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The technology has a 91% success rate as per clinical studies. Patients treated report being pain free and/or have significant reduction in pain after only 1 or 2 treatments. There is no down time. The non-surgical therapy eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus improving quality of life.
What are the possible side effects?
This treatment has virtually no side effects. In some cases, patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days. Patients can return to work after treatments and in most cases, there is no down time.
