Officially called Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), the procedure is more commonly known as Shockwave Therapy.


WHAT IS FOCUSED SHOCKWAVE THERAPY AND HOW DOES IT HELP?

Despite the name, Shockwave therapy doesn’t involve electric shocks. Instead, it utilizes high energy acoustic sound waves. When applied to targeted areas, the therapy triggers a biological response, promoting tissue repair and regeneration.

This means that inflammation levels are decreased, allowing for improved blood flow and stimulation of oxygen-rich cells in the area. This leads to faster healing and recovery times, all with no downtime or discomfort!


HOW DOES FOCUSED SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORK?

Focused Shockwave Therapy utilizes an electromagnetic coil to generate a precisely targeted pressure wave. This wave provides optimal therapeutic benefit. Stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms by promoting cellular repair and regeneration to the area.

HOW IS THERAPY DONE?

Your Fort Worth TX Chiropractor will discuss your symptoms with you and locate the source of pain. They will determine the area intended for the Shockwave Therapy. Ultrasound gel is applied to optimize the contact between the application device and your skin. The handpiece delivers pulsations to the area for a number of prescribed pulses, depending on the condition. The therapy procedure is more comfortable than a deep tissue massage.

Depending on the severity and longevity of the condition being treated, Focused Shockwave Therapy is typically administered once a week. Each treatment session lasts between 5-10 minutes, and you may only need 4-10 treatments for an optimal outcome.
