Focus Shockwave Therapy

Focused Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) involves the targeted application of high energy acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s cellular and natural healing mechanisms. This specialized treatment employs a lens-focused wave that penetrates up to a depth of 4.7 inches into the body. Many may be familiar with lithotripsy, which uses high energy shockwaves to break up kidney stones, but ESWT utilizes a similar wave form at lower levels that do not cause tissue destruction. Instead, its purpose is to initiate mechanotransduction – an essential process that contributes to improved outcomes for various chronic conditions.

THE OPTIMAL NUMBER OF TREATMENT SESSIONS REQUIRED DEPENDS ON TWO SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTORS: the specific ailment being addressed and the responsiveness of the affected tissue. It is generally advised that a minimum of 3-6 treatments be completed in order to attain measurable progress, with potential alleviation of certain symptoms potentially achieved by the third session.

The initial treatment may yield improvements in both physical function and pain management, providing relief and promoting overall well-being. These positive outcomes can bolster an individual’s ability to perform daily activities when integrated into a comprehensive plan by a qualified rehabilitation specialist. We strongly recommend adhering to your physician’s guidelines for resuming regular activity levels even if pain relief has been experienced through our treatments.
