Acoustic Wave Therapy - Advanced Non-Invasive Treatment


Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy Pain Treatment

A new, non-invasive treatment solution that uses high-intensity sound waves which interact with damaged or inflamed tissues of the body.

Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) has been used in the medical industry for decades (especially among Veterinarians in the US and healthcare professionals in Europe and Canada). Just recently AWT was recognized as an effective, therapeutic solution for application on the human body as well.

AWT works by sending low-energy pulses into the affected area of the injured tissue. These pressure waves may stimulate the natural bio-healing effects in the body.

Which ailments can Acoustic Wave Therapy help treat?

Acoustic Wave Therapy may aid in the treatment of acute, chronic or painful soft tissue lesions of the musculoskeletal system including:

  1. Knee Pain
  2. Arthritis
  3. Hip Pain
  4. Back Pain
  5. Foot Pain
  1. Shoulder Pain
  2. Difficulty sleeping from leg & foot discomfort
  3. Prickling or tingling feeling in feet
  4. Trigger Points In Muscles


Acoustic Wave Therapy
What are some of the benefits and effects of Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Our patients have reported post-treatment results such as:

  1. Relaxation of muscle and connective tissue
  2. Improved microcirculation
  3. Noticeably elevated stimulation across the injured area
  4. Acceleration of metabolic activity
  5. Heightened neurovascular performance
  6. Increased serotonin hormone release
  7. Significant stress reduction as a result of lowered cortisol levels
  8. Overall revitalization, following a patient’s completed course of treatment


How soon can someone see results from Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Almost immediately upon receiving treatment, many patients may notice improvements such as a reduction in pain and increased mobility.

These results may generally last for 5-8 days but some slight discomfort could, in some cases, return prior to a patient’s next scheduled treatment. Most patients, however, could become free of discomfort over the following 2-3 weeks, when the body’s natural healing process begins to take place.

Acoustic Wave Therapy is Not New

For years, Acoustic Wave Therapy has been used by veterinarians to assist with decreasing pain, alleviating injuries and even treating wounds. After decades of proof that acoustic wave treatment can aid in the healing process for animals, this similar wave technology is now available as a new non-invasive solution for humans to reap the same therapeutic rewards.

Acoustic Wave Therapy Common Questions


Is Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment similar to ultrasound therapy?

Ultrasound therapy is comprised of one continuous wave with a frequency range of 0.75–3 MHz, which is used to promote deep healing within the damaged soft tissues of the body. Acoustic Wave Therapy, however, consists of several continuous sound waves (or acoustic pulses) which have high amplitude, are very short in length and place negative tension on the body’s tissues.

Is Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment similar to laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a type of treatment that uses intense beams of light. Acoustic Wave Therapy uses sound waves (or acoustic pulses) instead, which are pressure waves similar in nature to thunder and lightning or an airplane breaking the sound barrier.

What are the possible side effects of Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Patients who have recently undergone Acoustic Wave Therapy treatment have reported no major side effects. Occasionally some swelling, reddening, hematomas, petechiae, localized increased pain, or skin lesions have been documented but are rare.
