Avoid Costly Surgery & Treat Your Pain With Shockwave Therapy

Pain, strain, and sprains are all some of the symptoms that we all experience here and their on our soft tissue, ligaments, and tendons. For some, pain subsides over time, but for many, it can lead to become acute and chronic pain. At K Wellness Medical, we offer extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), a noninvasive and safe treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to penetrate into affected soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing.

Shock wave therapy is a great alternative for athletes and patients who are looking for pain relief treatments that go beyond rest, ice, exercise, braces, medication, and especially costly surgery.

Shockwave therapy treatment has helped treat many conditions
such as:

  • Jumpers Knee
  • Painful Shoulder
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Heel Spur
  • Insertional Pain
  • Chronic Tendonitis
  • Hip Pain
  • Calcifications
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Lower Leg Shin Splints

After a gel is applied to the painful area, the shock wave therapy begins to treat the cause by enabling more blood flow to the affected area. The main goal of shockwave therapy treatments are to offer fast pain relief and mobility restoration while addressing the source of the problem and assuring the treatments lasts a long time. With an average of 6-8 treatments needed for patients that last about 8-10 minutes each, shockwave therapy is a quick and easy treatment to add into your routine if you are experiencing any acute pain. Treatment plan and length will vary depending on the patients pain level and severity.

Side effects of shockwave therapy are limited to bruising, swelling, pain, numbness, and tingling in treated areas. However, slight side effects will encourage healing quicker, and with an 80% success rate, shockwave therapy treatment can be the solution for your pain.
