Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

An effective, drug-free, non-invasive treatment!


What Is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses acoustic shockwaves to deeply stimulate tissue, tendons, and bones. Also known as Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), this treatment is specifically designed for those suffering from chronic and acute musculoskeletal ailments. Shockwave therapy helps to repair, rejuvenate, and restore muscle tissues in a safe and straightforward manner and is a great option for individuals who have not seen results from other forms of therapy.


Shockwave therapy is completely drug-free and is 100% non-invasive, combating your pain at its source. By delivering focused extracorporeal shockwaves to muscles and tissues, we can help stimulate your body’s healing processes and root out the true cause of your pain. These treatments are suitable for treating acute and chronic pain all across your body and can penetrate deep into tissue while leaving you with little-to-no downtime.

Shockwave therapy can target many pain points:

  • Neck
  • Shoulder

  • Muscle sprains/strains


Is Shockwave Therapy Safe?

Shockwave therapy is absolutely safe! As a completely non-invasive and drug-free alternative, this treatment can provide real relief without the risk of serious side effects. As a matter of fact, shockwave therapy is frequently used in sports medicine for its minimal recovery period, allowing players and patients to return to their active lives sooner.


What to Expect During Treatment

Many patients say shockwave therapy feels like a series of pulses against their skin and muscles. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, sessions can be short and often allow patients to resume their normal activities immediately after their appointment! Many patients feel relief after as little as one appointment, but shockwave therapy’s benefits are often cumulative, building upon each successive treatment for steady decreases in pain. More than 80% of patients report successful outcomes and diminished pain after shockwave therapy.
