Shockwave Therapy FAQs

Shockwave therapy may sound like an intense medical treatment, but it is a perfectly safe procedure. At the Center of Natural Health & Rehabilitation, we have been sharing the benefits of Shockwave Therapy with residents of Lebanon, NJ for many years. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding shockwave therapy.

.

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is, first and foremost, a pain relief technique. It is typically used when all other forms of treatment have failed. Shockwave therapy is available in various medical departments such as orthopedics, sports medicine, and urology.

How Does it Work?

The shockwaves move directly to the area in which the patient experiences the most pain. The purpose of the wave is to revive the body’s natural healing process. Shockwaves depend on the kinetic energy stored within compressed air, which transfers through the applicator.

Who Needs Shockwave Therapy?

Here is a complete list of people who are eligible for shockwave therapy. If you have experienced any of these symptoms, ask your doctor if shockwave therapy is right for you:

  • If you have been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal condition
  • Having chronic pain that lasts more than six weeks
  • Diagnosed with tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, or jumper’s knee
  • If you experience chronic stress
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Retrocalcaneal bursitis

Does Shockwave Therapy Hurt?

Just like all types of pain, it varies per person. You may experience mild pain or discomfort during the procedure. If the pain is too much to handle, make this known to your technician. They will listen to your needs and lower the dosage to remedy the pain. Ask advice from your doctor and technicians on what to expect from the process.

What are the Benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is the last resort to many who experience chronic pain that will not go away. There are plenty of benefits such as:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved mobility
  • Limited side effects
  • More convenient than surgical intervention
