Accelerate Healing With Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave treatments are non invasive and promote accelerated recovery of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries, bone, and joint pain.


Shockwave therapy does NOT produce “shocks” to the body, instead it uses a very short energy wave that promotes healing at a cellular level. This is done by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. In many instances, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.


With the adjustments we are doing, we are confident we are getting proper nerve supply to the different area of your body. When there is a chronic issue, the problem is that there is damage in that area. And here is what Shockwave does:


  • It will bring blood supply into the area to bring more nutrients to heal the area and decrease inflammation and this will make it feel better
  • More importantly, it will tell your body that this area is a freshly damaged area. It’s going to grow new blood supply to the area so you can bring all the healing nutrients
  • It’s going to stimulate your body to create stem cells. Stem cells are the blue print to build a brand-new tendon or muscle cell, this is re-growing the area, this is called regeneration. You have heard about people doing stem cell injections? Similar thing here, without the injections and they are your own stem cells.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative and most patients will notice an improvement within the first 1-4 sessions, some may need 6-10 sessions. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.

How often will I need the treatment?

Depending on the diagnosis and the tissue response, you may come 1-2 times per week.

Are there any restrictions after the treatment?

It’s actually recommended to be active after the session such as stretching the tissues to maintain the gains. Depending on your case, your doctor may give you some restrictions, stretches or exercises.

Does the treatment hurt?

The treatment does not hurt. There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about 4-5 minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this mild discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.

How will I feel after the treatment?

Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. Rarely some may experience some mild soreness in the treated area (like you did a workout) as we are stimulating new cell generation and healing. This temporary soreness is tolerable and not limiting.
