Orthopedic Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment option for painful musculoskeletal conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis Elbow, and Achilles Tendonitis. It uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing by triggering the body’s natural immune response system (inflammation). This allows for increased blood flow and decreased scar tissue.
We also offer Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT) as an add-on to Orthopedic AWT treatments. EMTT uses high-energy magnetic fields to regenerate and rehabilitate the tissue at a cellular level. This causes the body to initiate an anti-inflammatory response, reducing pain and inflammation in affected areas.
Together, Orthopedic AWT and EMTT are potent forces in reducing pain and rebuilding the body’s natural healing processes. Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and typically require several sessions to achieve optimal results, and are highly effective as part of a patient’s regular clinical care.
The sensation during Orthopedic AWT treatment can vary depending on the area being treated and the individual’s pain tolerance, but some people describe it as a deep, intense massage or a tapping sensation. Some may feel some discomfort or mild pain during the treatment, but it should go away after the treatment.
