Shockwave Therapy

Formally called Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, SWT is not a new, untested treatment:
  • It was born in the 1980’s out of lithotripsy, the use of acoustic waves to break kidney stones
  • Doctors noted soft tissue healing and bone density increasing after lithotripsy treatments
  • In the 1990’s, SWT began to be used on musculoskeletal injuries with amazing results
  • SWT is non-invasive and extremely effective;  eliminating the risks, downtime, and costs associated with surgery
  • In 2004, Sonex Orthopedics’ devices received FDA approval
The energy delivered to an injury by SWT has numerous biological effects on bones, tendons and other soft tissue.
  • Breaks down scar tissue, calcifications, and plaque
  • Increases blood flow through vascular growth
  • Immediately decreases pain with analgesic effects
  • Initiates your body’s natural healing process in the injured tissue, including the upregulation of growth factors and other healing factors
SWT has been studied and used extensively for over 20 years.
  • There are hundreds of studies proving the safety and efficacy of SWT for numerous injuries
  • No serious nor long-term complication has ever been observed
  • Sonex Orthopedics’ devices are fully FDA approved, Class 3, medical devices
  • Not all SWT is equal; with Sonex, you know you are getting true SWT that is both safe and effective
OrthoWave, OsteoWave and CorporaWave SWT treatments are non-invasive and completed in office.
  • Protocol and treatments vary based on the injury but a session typically lasts 20 to 45 min
  • You are positioned in the exam chair, ultrasound gel applied, and the SWT treatment head placed precisely against the injury site.
  • 3000 to 4000 shock waves are delivered at a specific frequency/energy level while ensuring your comfort.
  • Post treatment instructions are provided and you are able to leave immediately.
SWT is completely non-invasive so there is no lengthy recovery period, time off from work, nor risk of complications like invasive surgery.
  • Generally, high-impact activities need to be avoided for 30 days
  • Braces, boots, slings, crutches, etc, are not required
  • Most patients see a significant decrease in pain and increase in function immediately
  • Greatest improvement realized over first 30 days but healing continues for several months
  • Waiting 30 days is often hardest part as the injury quickly feels good for the first time in a long time…just give it some time to fully heal

Why Sonex Orthopedics

20 years

of Shockwave Therapy experience

Over 90%

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.
