What is Shock wave Therapy?

A type of regenerative medicine, shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates the natural healing process of the body to relieve pain by healing injured ligaments, tendons, soft tissues, and other sports-related and musculoskeletal injuries.

Shock Therapy is a new treatment modality that has been developed in the world of regenerative medicine. It is performed through either focused shock wave therapy (FSWT) or radial shock wave therapy (RSWT). During the treatments, the medical experts use a handheld device to send shockwaves into the treated area that stimulate blood flow and promote the growth of new tissues. Resultantly, it reduces pain and heals tendinopathy.

Many patients who receive the treatment claim to observe significant healing. However, studies are still underway to comprehend the effectiveness of Shock Wave Therapy. Keep in mind that the treatment takes time to show complete results.

The treatment takes between 20-30 minutes to complete. We recommend 3 to 5 treatments for several weeks, depending on the patient’s condition.

The side effects of Shock Wave Therapy are rare and can be avoided if the treatment is handled by a professional doctor. The medical experts examine the patient’s health and injury before starting the treatment to avoid complications.

You may feel discomfort depending on the injury and proximity of the damaged tissue to the bone. A numbing cream will be applied during the therapy to make the treatment comfortable.

Shock Wave Therapy can treat many sports injuries, including but not limited to foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, elbow pain, and shoulder pain.
