Shockwave Therapy

Every week, patients come to our offices from all over New Hampshire and even Maine looking for answers for their chronic foot pain. Most have been suffering for months; a few have had symptoms for years. And nothing they’ve done has seemed to help.

If chronic foot or ankle pain is part of your life, an advanced treatment called shockwave therapy may be precisely what you need.

This breakthrough, FDA cleared, and scientifically backed procedure helps injured, inflamed tissues repair themselves faster and more effectively—all without injections, anesthesia, drugs, or significant side effects!

Shockwave therapy is highly effective in treating inflammatory soft tissue conditions such as:

What Is Shockwave Therapy? How Does It Work?

Shockwave is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment that uses pressure waves to stimulate metabolism, enhance blood flow,, and accelerate healing that gradually regenerates and eventually heals damaged tissue.

 What Can I Expect During Shockwave Therapy Treatment?

Individual treatment sessions usually only take about 5-10 minutes, although it depends on the size of the area that requires treatment. We’ll apply a thin layer of gel to the skin to improve contact with the applicator and ensure even distribution of pulses.

Most people do not experience any significant discomfort during or after the procedure. Some mild soreness or light bruising can sometimes be present for a few days afterward. 

How Soon Will I Feel Results?

Some patients report immediate pain relief but it can take 4-6 weeks for pain relief to begin. The effects of treatment are cumulative; therefore expect to see improvements as you proceed the treatment plan. 80% of patients report resolution of pain or have a significant reduction. 

How Often Are Treatment Sessions?

You start with one treatment per week for the first five weeks. After that you will move to a monthly schedule with one treatment per month for the next 11 months. We offer 12 month treatment plans with a low monthly payment so you can get the Shockwave treatments you need. 

Although shockwave therapy may not work for everyone, 4 out of 5 people say they are satisfied with the treatment. It’s also extremely safe, with minimal side effects and very few contraindications.
