Shockwave Therapy in Nashville

shockwave wand on legReferred to as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), shockwave therapy is a breakthrough, nonsurgical treatment that promotes healing and relieves pain. Shockwave therapy got its founding from ED treatments. The therapy was able to reproduce angiogenesis, which creates new vessels in the tissue, increases blood flow, and decreases inflammation.

The treatment also recruits mesenchymal stem cells to the area being treated, which promotes long-term healing. Those cells are dormant stem cells within your body being recruited so nothing foreign is being injected into the body. Instead, you can experience true, natural, internal healing.

The therapy uses spurts of highly pressured acoustic (sound) waves that travel around 3300 mph! These sound waves deliver a powered force to painful areas of the body to produce microabrasions that create the rest of the benefit.

Who Can It Help?

In addition to alleviating chronic pain, this state-of-the-art therapy may also help improve range of motion and reduce muscle tension. This non-invasive treatment promotes healing and may provide relief from various painful conditions, such as

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does each session last?

A session takes from 3-8 minutes.

Is the therapy painful, and are there any side effects?

There are no side effects associated with the treatment. There can be some slight discomfort during the session and slight tenderness may be experienced afterward. Any discomfort should be no more than 4 or 5 on the pain scale. We can control that as the treatment is tailored specifically to the patient and what they can handle.

We do find that often people get off the table and notice an immediate difference in how they feel in a good way!

Is the treatment suitable for all ages?

As there are very few contraindications associated with shockwave therapy, patients as young as 12 can have it. In fact, we successfully used the therapy on a 12-year-old boy with Sever’s disease, a common cause of heel pain in growing children. The therapy has provided a lot of relief.

Another patient, a woman in her late 80s, had knee pain, and wasn’t a candidate for surgery. Shockwave therapy was her only option. The patient experienced significant relief due to her treatment.
