Shockwave Therapy
at Midwest Sport and Spine

Shockwave on footShockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves the delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. Shockwave therapy consists of radial pressure waves, which are acoustic waves that generate oscillations in the tissue. The wave hits the body at the skin surface and travels radially into the body to a depth of about 2 inches. Next, the pressure waves stimulate metabolic activity and the body’s intrinsic healing mechanism.

Shockwave therapy is an addition to managing chronic conditions. Due to its depth of penetration and providing influence to the tissue through mechanotransduction, there is an opportunity to treat conditions effectively and efficiently than would otherwise have been a challenge.

The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

  • Short treatment time (minutes)
  • Treat large areas at a time
  • Non-invasive solution
  • No known significant adverse effects
  • Results in a few minutes
  • Cost-effective
  • Faster, easier healing
  • Alternative to medication

Shockwave therapy is a modality that is becoming more common. The treatment is non-invasive. First, a gel is applied to the treatment area. Second, an applicator is applied and manipulated to release pressure waves over the affected area. Treatment sessions typically last 5 minutes, but this can vary depending on the area(s) and condition being treated.

The shockwave therapy is a modern method used to successfully treat acute and chronic conditions. Shockwave therapy is most suited for people who have chronic (greater than six weeks) tendinopathies (commonly referred to as tendinitis), which haven’t responded to other treatments.

These conditions include

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shoulder pain, shoulder calcifications (Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendonitis)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Elbow tendinopathies
  • Chronic neck, shoulder and back pain (myofascial pain syndrome)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Scar tissue treatment
  • Jumper’s knee (Patellar tendonitis)

There are some tendon conditions that don’t respond to traditional forms of treatment. Having the option of shockwave therapy allows clinicians another treatment method.
