Shockwave Centers of America


Conditions Treated by Shockwave Therapy

The practitioner carrying out the treatment will apply ultrasound gel to the injured area and then place the applicator on the area administering the ballistic waves (compressed air impulses) over the affected area in a very slow, circular motion.

Most patients do experience a minor level of discomfort during the procedure, however, all measures will be taken to adjust the treatment to help manage any discomfort. Patients may also feel soreness in the area for a day or two afterward, similar to a strenuous workout.
