What is Shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy uses acoustic sound waves to produce strong vibrations or high energy shockwaves that promote reparative processes and regeneration of tendons, bones, and other soft tissues.
Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive treatment used successfully across varying branches of medicine, such as orthopedics, physiotherapy, urology, sports medicine, and veterinary medicine.
The medical team usually applies a gel to the area to help smoothly and efficiently transfer the acoustic sound waves. They gently push the shockwave applicator against the area, delivering the high-energy shockwaves in a simple, easy treatment.
You might have a tolerable feeling of mild discomfort during your treatment, and within 2-4 hours following your treatment, you may experience some soreness in the treated area.
Depending on the area being treated and the extent of the damage or injury, healing usually takes around six weeks.

What are the benefits of shockwave therapy?
New Body Medical provides shockwave therapy for its multitude of benefits, such as:
Fast pain relief
Nonsurgical and non-pharmaceutical alternative
Can treat both acute and chronic pain
Convenient in-office treatment
Most people experience benefits and pain relief right away, but multiple treatments are usually needed for the best outcome. The practice recommends that you avoid physical activity for about 48 hours after each treatment session.
Having nutrient blood flow is necessary to start and maintain the important repair processes of your damaged tissue. Shockwave therapy can stimulate new blood vessel formation, disperse certain pain mediator substances, release trigger points, lower chronic inflammation, and stimulate collagen production.
The acoustic sound waves used in shockwave therapy can also help to break up existing calcifications. Calcium accumulation is often the result of trauma or micro-tears to a tendon.
The team can discuss shockwave therapy in detail during your personal consultation.
