Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-injection therapy that delivers strong energy pulses to the affected area.

This stimulates the cells in the body responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. It is gentle on tissue and can help alleviate pain long-term.

A gel is applied to the treatment area to allow the shockwaves to be passed into the body without any loss of energy. After this preparation, a wand is moved over the pain region in a circular motion, passing the energy impulses to the tissue.

Each therapy session takes between 5-10 minutes, depending on the disorder treated. For acute injuries, an average of 6-8 treatments are necessary at weekly intervals.

Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Commonly Treated Conditions

Magnet therapy is a new FDA-approved non-invasive procedure developed to treat musculoskeletal pain.

It differs from other forms of magnetic field therapy, such as pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) as it produces a higher oscillation frequency and stronger magnetic field, also known as “transduction power”. It was developed in Europe and has been approved for use in the U.S. by the FDA.

EMTT is largely a risk-free, side-effect free and pain-free treatment that penetrates deep into the painful area, initiating an anti-inflammatory response and reducing pain. Direct skin contact is not necessary so patients can remain fully clothed.

High energy magnetic pulses are then transmitted to your body in a session that lasts about 5-10 minutes, for about 6-8 sessions, depending on the diagnosis.
