Having an injury can be extremely frustrating, especially a musculoskeletal injury. These types of injuries can often take six weeks or even several months to fully heal and can affect tendons, muscles, ligaments, and bones.

Shockwave therapy for musculoskeletal injuries is an effective treatment option to speed up the recovery process while being completely non-invasive. By applying acoustic waves to the injured area, more blood flow can access the area, promoting healing and providing pain relief.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), applies high-frequency pressure waves to the injured area. This creates microtrauma in the tissue, triggering an inflammatory response that increases blood flow to the injury. The body then works to repair the tissue, speeding up the healing process and reducing pain. The exact amount of pressure applied can be adjusted based on your specific needs.

As mentioned, musculoskeletal injuries can be painful and take several weeks (or months) to heal due to the lack of blood flow to the injured area. With shockwave treatment, injuries can potentially heal faster.

Types of Injuries Treated

Shockwave therapy can address a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries, including:
  • Tendonitis
  • Chronic pain from injuries

What To Expect with Shockwave Therapy Treatment

During your shockwave therapy consultation, your provider will conduct a medical evaluation, listen to your specific symptoms, and assess the injured area. If found to be a candidate for treatment, your provider will create a customized treatment plan and provide you with the specific number of sessions you’ll need.

Shockwave therapy uses a specialized device that is applied to the injured area, which emits shockwaves that will trigger an inflammatory response so that the body can produce more blood flow to the injury. Each session will last approximately 20 minutes. Shockwave therapy is an outpatient procedure with no downtime, enabling patients to drive after each session and resume their normal activities. Many patients receive additional treatment sessions over the course of several weeks to experience the full benefit of treatment.

Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?

Most clients report minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. The exact intensity of the shockwaves can be adjusted to the comfort level most well-tolerated. A numbing cream can also be applied to minimize any potential discomfort.

How Long Do the Benefits Last?

The exact amount of time the benefits of shockwave therapy last will vary based on each individual person. In many cases, clients experience injuries that heal more quickly.

Shockwave therapy for musculoskeletal injuries is most effective when combined with physical therapy sessions, rest, and/or specific lifestyle adjustments.

What are the Potential Side Effects?

Common side effects are temporary and mild, including redness at the location where treatment was applied, and potentially bruising and/or swelling. More severe side effects, while very rare, can include blistering or increased pain.
