Acoustic Shockwave Therapy For Joints

Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), also commonly referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is an out-patient treatment used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve the appearance of stretch marks, and treat chronic pain in joints and muscles.


Shockwave therapy is one of the most effective treatments of calcifications. Acoustic waves cause disruption of the calcified entities and support their resorption and elimination by the body. SWT significantly decreases treatment length and offers fast relief in chronic stages.

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain. 

Officially called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), the procedure is more commonly known as shockwave therapy.

Acoustic Wave Therapy has originally been used to treat chronic pain in joints, muscles and other painful injuries. Those suffering from these chronically painful injuries received AWT and most reported that after only a few treatments, there was marked improvement in mobility, healing and pain management.

The good news is that according to case studies, it has been medically proven that this therapy demonstrated real, measurable improvement in the reduction of cellulite and the appearance stretch marks.

After a series of treatments, the positive results from AWT may help:

  • Reduce the production and look of cellulite
  • Break down enlarged fat cells
  • Restore connective tissue
  • Improve muscle tone
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Promote lymphatic drainage (elimination of toxins/waste)
  • Improve blood flow/circulation
  • Promote increased production of collagen
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars
  • Tighten, firm and smooth out loose skin
  • Reduce symptoms associated with conditions such as plantar fasciitis, trigger finger, carpel tunnel, tendinitis, etc.

Multiple scientific papers have found that it can successfully treat conditions such as heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendinopathy.

Shockwave therapy is delivered directly onto the skin that covers the affected area. This kind of pain relief therapy uses low energy sound, or acoustic, waves, rather than electrical waves.

If you have scar tissue in the area, that’s contributing to your pain, shockwave therapy will also help to break down this thick, fibrous tissue. Scar tissue causes immobility in the surrounding tissues as unlike normal tissues, it isn’t very elastic. Breaking it down using sound waves helps to improve mobility and discomfort.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment
