What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a modern and highly effective treatment method that uses acoustic waves to stimulate the healing process in injured tissues. Originally developed to treat kidney stones, this innovative therapy has expanded its applications to address a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain conditions. The acoustic waves penetrate deep into the tissues, promoting increased blood flow, reducing inflammation, and accelerating the natural healing process.

Conditions Treated with Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is versatile and can be used to treat various conditions, including but not limited to:

  1. Plantar Fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis, a common cause of heel pain, involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot. Shockwave Therapy helps to reduce pain and inflammation, promoting healing in the affected area.
  2. Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): This condition results from overuse of the elbow, leading to pain and tenderness on the outer side of the joint. Shockwave Therapy can help alleviate pain and promote tissue regeneration.
  3. Achilles Tendonitis: Achilles tendonitis involves inflammation of the Achilles tendon, causing pain and stiffness. Shockwave Therapy stimulates blood flow and healing in the tendon, reducing pain and improving function.
  4. Shoulder Pain: Various shoulder conditions, such as rotator cuff injuries and calcific tendonitis, can benefit from Shockwave Therapy. The treatment helps to break down calcifications and promote healing of the soft tissues.
  5. Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee) : This condition, common among athletes, causes pain and inflammation in the tendon connecting the kneecap to the shinbone. Shockwave Therapy reduces pain and stimulates healing in the affected tendon.
  6. Hip Pain: Hip bursitis and other hip-related conditions can be effectively treated with Shockwave Therapy, which helps to reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair.
  7. Stress Fractures: Shockwave Therapy can aid in the healing of stress fractures by stimulating bone healing and reducing pain.

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced pain management specialists. During this consultation, we will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a thorough physical examination. This assessment helps us determine if Shockwave Therapy is the right treatment for your condition.

Based on your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will outline the number of sessions required, the areas to be treated, and any additional therapies that may complement Shockwave Therapy.

During a Shockwave Therapy session, you will be comfortably positioned, and a gel will be applied to the treatment area to enhance the transmission of acoustic waves. The handheld device, which generates the shockwaves, will be applied to the affected area. You may feel some discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated. Each session typically lasts about 15-20 minutes.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and usually resolve within a few days. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your specialist to optimize your recovery.

Many patients begin to notice improvements after just one or two sessions, although a series of treatments is often recommended for optimal results. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the condition being treated and individual response to therapy. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
