Shockwave Therapy Uses Sound Waves to Reduce Pain
If you have aches, pains, or injury recovery that is taking too long, shockwave therapy could be the answer.
The longer name for this acclaimed, highly successful treatment is extracorporeal shockwave therapy. The abbreviation is ESWT.
ESWT at The Guyer institute and Synergy Spa can do wonders for stressed, overtaxed muscles, ligaments, and tendons. A concentrated dose of these sound waves can reduce discomfort almost immediately.
Shockwave therapy works where other efforts to lower pain level just have not.
At the Guyer Institute, Kelly is our main therapist for the FDA-cleared treatment. She is also a certified medical assistant.
The ESWT treatments we do are noninvasive. After a gel is applied to the treatment area, an applicator is used release pressure waves over the affected area.
Shockwave therapy sessions usually last no more than five minutes. There is no downtime.
We have decreased the cost for this therapy: the cost of treatment for one area is now $100, with an additional $25 per area treated – not to exceed $150 total.
33-year old Helene is one of our shockwave therapy patients at The Guyer institute. “Hip pain had sidelined me from running,” she says. “I wasn’t sure how to proceed since I love to run. After my first shockwave therapy, there was immediate relief. I began my return to running following a second treatment. I’m incredibly pleased that a short, non-invasive treatment made such a difference.”
Treatment areas can include the knee, heel, foot, ankle, hamstring, back, neck, shoulder, wrist, and hand. Painful conditions such as rotator cuff deterioration, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis show demonstrative improvement after shockwave therapy.
ESWT accelerates the healing process by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to re-energize damaged tissue.
Some clinical studies show pain reduction in 90% of patients who undergo the shockwave therapy. Patient satisfaction approaches 80%.
