The first thing to know, if you suffer from chronic pain, is that you are not alone. On the low end, about one in five patients suffers from chronic pain; it’s defined as pain that lasts longer than six months. The different types of pain vary considerably from mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous to merely inconvenient or completely incapacitating.

It is also clear that chronic pain is not only about physical pain but also takes a significant emotional toll on the individual. The most common sources of chronic pain stem from headaches, joint pain, pain from injury and backaches. However, there are many other types of chronic pain which include the following: tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pain affecting specific parts of the body, such as the shoulders, pelvis, and neck. Generalized muscle or nerve pain can also develop into a chronic condition.

The origin of chronic pain or Chronic Pain Syndrome, as it is sometimes called, is variable. It commonly originates with an initial trauma/injury or infection however this is not always the case. Chronic pain is challenging to treat medically and is considered to have an unclear etiology. Some people suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage.

Because of the mind-body links associated with chronic pain, effective rehabilitative treatment requires addressing psychological as well as physical aspects of the condition. It is normal to experience pain after suffering an injury. However, it is important to take control of your injuries before they become chronic.

What We Offer
Medical Effects

Acoustic waves with high energy peak used in Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration. All the processes mentioned in this section are typically employed simultaneously and are used to treat chronic, sub-acute and acute (advanced users only) conditions. 


New Blood Vessel Formation

Nutrient blood flow is necessary to start and maintain the repair processes of damaged tissue. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary microruptures in tendon and bone.

Reversal of Chronic Inflammation

Mast cells are one of the key components of the inflammatory process. Their activity may be increased by using pervasive acoustic waves.

Stimulation of Collagen Production

The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is a necessary precondition for the repair processes of the damaged myoskeletal and ligamentous structures. Shockwave therapy accelerates procollagen synthesis.

Dissolution of Calcified Fibroblasts

Calcium build-up is most often the result of micro-tears or other trauma to a tendon. Acoustic waves break up the existing calcifications. 

Dispersion of Pain Mediator “Substance P”

Substance P is a neurotransmitter that mediates pain information through the C-fibers. This neuropeptide is generally associated with intense, persistent and chronic pain.

Release of Trigger Points

Trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder and limbs. Delivered acoustic energy unblocks the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis in the myofilaments and releases the trigger points.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Will Shockwave therapy help me?

Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their problem.

Does the treatment hurt?

There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–5) treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.

How often will I need the treatment?

Most indications require 3–5 treatments which are done 3–10 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response.

Will I feel any pain after the treatment?

Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.

Are there any restrictions after the treatment?

It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity, especially one that would involve the treated region, for about 48 hours following each treatment session.
