Frequently Asked Questions About Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to initiate tissue repair and enhance blood flow. Learn how Shockwave Therapy can help relieve pain, accelerate recovery, and improve your quality of life, backed by clinical research and our extensive treatment experience.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to help alleviate pain and promote healing in injured or degenerated tissue. It is commonly used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

The therapy works by delivering shockwaves to the affected area, which stimulates the body's natural healing processes. These waves encourage blood flow, accelerate tissue repair, and promote cell growth and collagen production.

Shockwave therapy is effective in treating a range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Tennis elbow
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Shoulder tendinitis
  • Chronic muscular pain

Most patients experience a degree of discomfort during treatment, but this is generally tolerable and lasts only a few minutes. The intensity of the shockwaves can be adjusted to minimize discomfort.

The number of sessions varies depending on the condition and its severity, but typically, patients undergo 3 to 5 sessions, spaced a week apart.

Shockwave therapy is very safe, but some patients may experience temporary side effects such as swelling, redness, or minor pain in the treated area shortly after the session.

There is no downtime required after shockwave therapy. Patients can usually return to their daily activities immediately. However, it is advised to avoid strenuous activities for a few days after the treatment to help the healing process.

Some patients report immediate pain relief, but typically, significant results are noticed after a few sessions as the body's natural healing process takes over. Full benefits are generally realized within three months.

Coverage varies by insurance provider and plan. We recommend checking with your insurance company to determine if shockwave therapy is covered under your policy.

Consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is essential. Our specialists can assess your condition and determine if shockwave therapy is a suitable treatment option for you.
