Shockwave therapy is a dynamic non-invasive pain relief solution used in orthopedics and physiotherapy. Shockwave therapy involves delivering acoustic waves into the injured tissues to stimulate natural regeneration and healing. This treatment boosts recovery, alleviates acute and chronic pain, and makes you feel better. The fact that it’s completely non-invasive makes it that much more attractive. Cohen Medical Aesthetics performs highly personalized shockwave therapy to alleviate pain and improve your quality of life.

Alleviate chronic pain with shockwave therapy
Shockwave therapy uses acoustic waves to alleviate chronic/ acute pain and improve mobility. The shockwave device delivers high-energy acoustic waves into the painful spots and injured tissues on the body. The acoustic waves promote cellular regeneration and tissue reparation, leading to the gradual healing of bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues. Shockwave therapy triggers and catalyzes your body’s natural healing properties, allowing you to recover from injuries and chronic pain conditions faster.
Shockwave therapy stimulates the following regenerative processes:
- Facilitate the formation of new blood vessels
- Reverse chronic inflammation
- Stimulate collagen production
- Dissolve accumulated calcium
- Disperse the pain-transmitting neuropeptide
- Release the trigger points
Benefits of shockwave therapy:
- Non-invasive chronic/ acute pain relief
- Improve mobility and range of motion
- Comfortable and painless treatment
- Stimulate natural cellular regeneration
- Concludes within 30 minutes
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Resume your daily activities and work immediately
- Completely natural form of pain relief
- No opioids or surgeries
Shockwave therapy: onset and longevity of results
The results of shockwave therapy are gradual and cumulative. Some patients experience considerable pain relief after one session, but most patients need multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal and long-lasting pain relief. Since this procedure catalyzes your body’s innate healing processes, you need to wait for your body to heal the injured tissues.
Most patients need 3 to 5 shockwave therapy sessions spaced a few days apart for optimal results. However, shockwave therapy doesn’t treat chronic illnesses and diseases at the heart of your symptoms. If you have severe or persistent pain caused by underlying spinal conditions or injuries, they must be addressed separately.
Shockwave therapy: side effects and recovery
You may experience mild discomfort during shockwave therapy, but it’s tolerable. You will experience immediate pain relief after the treatment, but you may experience mild soreness after 2 to 4 hours. You can resume daily activities and work after your treatment, but you should refrain from physical activities for about 2 days.
