Focused Shock Wave, formally known as Focused-Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (F-ESWT), is a proven and effective, non-invasive treatment for chronic tendon and ligament injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders. It uses targeted, high energy, acoustic waves from outside the body to effectively break apart the bad tissue and stimulate the natural regeneration and repair process of tendons, ligaments, bones, and other tissue. With a higher efficacy rate than surgery, Focused Shock Wave is extremely effective at relieving chronic orthopedic conditions and is used extensively around the world for powerful pain relief and natural healing. Specific injuries that it treats include chronic plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, tennis elbow, shoulder tendinopathy, nonunion fractures, and numerous other orthopedic injuries.
A Focused Shock Wave treatment is a 30-minute, pain free, non-invasive procedure using the FDA approved Dornier Epos Ultra system. The Dornier Epos Ultra produces a true high-energy acoustic shock wave, with each cycle generating an acoustic pressure wave of 400 bars over a period of 2 microseconds (2/1,000,000th of a second). In a typical treatment, the Focused Shock Wave initially provides an analgesic effect as the pressure ramps up by overstimulating the area, helping to disrupt the pain cycle. Metabolic stimulation then occurs, increasing cell membrane permeability and causing the body to release numerous growth factors, initiating natural healing. The Focused Shock Wave also causes micro-cavitation bubbles to quickly form and collapse. This fractures calcium formations and breaks apart the scar tissue that impedes healing. The cavitation bubbles also stimulate vascular growth, increasing the flow of nutrient rich blood to the area. By doing all this, Focused Shock Wave helps your body replace calcifications and scar tissue with health tissue for natural healing.
Focused Shock Wave has been studied extensively over the last 20 years and has been proven to successfully treat chronic injuries. It is a non-invasive outpatient procedure that allows you to return to work, life, and fitness the next day. It is also often less expensive than surgery, especially when surgery’s disruptive downtime is considered.
