ESWT is a mechanotherapy that involves pressurized sound waves that can reverse and reduce damage to tissues or promote healthy tissue homeostasis. It can serve as a viable alternative option to invasive procedures such as shoulder, hip, and long-bone fracture surgeries. ESWT is also effective in treating joint inflammation, plantar fasciitis, nerve pain, and tennis elbow, among other conditions.

Shockwave Therapy Treatments

At Well Within Chiropractic & Shockwave, we understand that chronic pain can significantly impact your daily life regardless of your activity levels. Our Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that can help restore functionality and mobility in your muscles and soft tissues. We use high-powered acoustic waves that eliminate complications and break down scar tissue deposits while stimulating new blood vessel formation and tissue repair in affected areas. This accelerates the healing response, and patients can recover in no time.

It’s essential to note that your body goes through wear and tear due to everyday activities, and this can lead to chronic injuries and pain. Traditional treatments such as painkillers and surgery may not offer long-term healing solutions. Painkillers may help manage pain, but their effectiveness decreases with time. Surgery can effectively reduce pain and restore mobility, but it often takes a long time to heal fully, and the rehabilitation period can be even longer. Additionally, surgery carries risks such as infection and tissue damage.

At Well Within Chiropractic & Shockwave, we offer alternative treatments that can help you regain control of your body without invasive procedures. Shockwave Therapy, which was first used as a treatment for kidney stones, has been effective in treating chronic pain that usually occurs in joints, tendons, and soft tissues. With high-powered acoustic waves, the therapy targets the root cause of pain and stimulates your body’s natural healing processes to restore functionality and mobility in affected areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most commonly reported adverse events related to Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) are local pain, especially with high-energy applications. In extreme cases, patients may experience intolerance, petechiae, local erythema, and hematomas.

While patients may experience slight discomfort during ESWT, the intensity of the therapy can be adjusted to minimize any pain. Typically, acoustic wave emissions last only about 5 minutes, making it easy for patients to tolerate.

Most patients can expect to complete their recovery with 3-5 progressive sessions of ESWT. However, the exact number of treatments required will depend on each patient's response to the therapy.

Patients may experience mild discomfort in the treated areas within 2-4 hours of the therapy. However, they should not experience any intense pain.

After ESWT, patients should avoid strenuous activities for at least 3 days to allow for proper recovery. While the treatment provides immediate pain relief, patients must follow the recommended restrictions to avoid complications.
