Looking for Shockwave therapy?

You can contact MoveWell for shockwave therapy!

Shockwave forms part of the most recent innovation in the therapeutic world and is now being used as a gold standard for many complaints. MoveWell has two of the latest shockwave devices in practice.

What is shockwave therapy?

A shockwave device focuses targeted sound impulses at a painful spot in or around a muscletendon or joint. Sound waves contain energy, which travel deep into the body and interstitial fluid. This starts the process of metabolism and blood circulation, with the goal of repairing the injured tissue.

How often do I need a shockwave treatment?

It’s difficult to determine the exact number of treatments necessary because your treatment plan typically depends on the specific type of tissue injury. For example; a heel spur has a different recovery time than tennis elbow. On average, it takes 4-5 treatments to notice an improvement. A single treatment requires five to ten minutes to be effective.

There are two types of Shockwave devices. Radial Shockwave and Focal Shockwave. At MoveWell, we utilize both devices in practice. They are the most innovative devices available today. Focal shockwave transmits a targeted sound impulse to a specific spot on the tissue injury. Your therapist will determine which form of therapy best suits your complaint.

Radial Shockwave

Radial shockwave is most commonly used in all practices. It reaches more superficially than focal shockwave, but still has high intensity. At MoveWell we use the Endopuls 811.

Focal Shockwave

Focal shockwave releases more waves into deeper structures than a radial shockwave. In addition, the name says it all; it is more precise and targeted than the radial shockwave therapy. To guarantee precisionultrasound is used to locate the depth and exact location of the injurythereafter shockwave is applied. Ultrasound could also be used during treatment plan to determine tissue healing and improvement. The focal shockwave device, we use at MoveWell is the Piezowave 2.
