During acoustic shockwave therapy, high-energy acoustic waves are delivered to the targeted area using a specialized device. These waves help to break down scar tissue, promote blood flow, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the production of collagen, facilitating tissue repair and regeneration.

Acoustic shockwave therapy can be effective in treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, and more. It is also used for conditions like erectile dysfunction and cellulite reduction.

Acoustic shockwave therapy may cause some discomfort during treatment, but it is generally well-tolerated by most patients. Your provider can adjust the intensity of the treatment to ensure your comfort level.

A typical acoustic shockwave therapy session lasts between 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the specific condition being treated and the area of the body involved.

The number of sessions needed can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated and how well the individual responds to therapy. Typically, 3 to 5 sessions spaced over several weeks are recommended for optimal results.

Side effects of acoustic shockwave therapy are usually minimal and may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the treatment site. These effects typically subside shortly after the session.
