proven efficacy rate for High-energy Shockwave Therapy treatments
High-energy Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses focused, high energy acoustic waves to treat numerous musculoskeletal injuries. It is a proven, safe, and highly effective alternative to surgery for chronic overuse injuries after conservative treatments have failed as well as mild to severe osteoarthritis.
High-energy Shockwave Therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive alternative to surgery for chronic overuse injuries, arthritis and other musculoskeletal injuries after conservative treatments have failed. Common injuries include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendonitis, and tennis elbow.
High-energy Shockwave Therapy has been proven in numerous Level 1 studies (Randomized Control Trials) to be highly effective, with success rates as high as 93%. In studies that compared High-energy Shockwave Therapy to surgery, non-invasive Shockwave Therapy proved to be more effective and without the risks associated with surgery.
Most injuries only require a single session of High-energy Shockwave Therapy. Everyone is different, but a majority of patients have a significant reduction in pain immediately after their treatment that continues to improve over the next 30 days as their injury heals. Patients then ease back into high-impact activities and fully recover after a month or two. Because the injury heals, additional treatments are not needed unless the area is reinjured.
No serious or long-term side effects have been observed in over 30 years of use and research of High-energy Shockwave Therapy. Short term side effects include redness, swelling, and/or tingling at the treatment site that normally resolves within a few days. Unlike surgery, there is no risk of making the injury worse with Shockwave Therapy.
High-energy Shockwave Therapy costs less than half the average deductible for surgery. It also does not have the ancillary costs associated with surgery like physical therapy, braces, or time off from work for recovery. FDA approved High-energy Shockwave Therapy typically costs between $2,000 and $3,000.
While High-energy Shockwave Therapy is highly effective, no medical treatment is 100% effective. If Shockwave Therapy does not work, it simply does not work. Unlike surgery, there is no risk of making the injury worse or serious side effects.
Shockwave Therapy and ultrasound are very different. High-energy Shockwave Therapy uses powerful acoustic wave energy to break apart scar tissue/calcifications, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, and initiate the body’s healing response. FDA approved Shockwave Therapy can only be prescribed by a licensed medical doctor. Ultrasound uses high frequency acoustic waves to deliver heat to an injury and stimulate blood flow. It is often used by athletic trainers and physical therapist in conjunction with other treatments.
