Shock Wave Therapy Is Available In Connecticut

An ever-increasing number of medical professionals are realizing just how powerful sound is for healing certain ailments of the body. By using non-invasive acoustic waves, they can treat patients who experience chronic, sub-acute, and acute pain, including ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones without having to resort to more painful remedies like injections or surgery. 

Effective and affordable, our Shockwave is performed on an outpatient basis and requires little-to-no downtime. With sessions lasting about as long as a deep tissue massage, you can get marked pain relief, reduced inflammation, and improved healing over time.

If you have had surgery or other types of treatment in the past, it can also help speed up the healing process and possibly improve your overall outcome with a non-invasive treatment plan individualized to meet your needs and goals.

People around the world have experienced the healing benefits that Shockwave therapy has to offer.  We are excited to be one of the only practices in the U.S. offering this patented shockwave technology to our patients who are searching for non-invasive healing alternatives that actually work.

How Does It Work?

The patented FALCON® applicator is held against the skin to administer a high-energy acoustic wave which penetrates deep into the body, sending pulses of acoustic energy to treat the abnormal area.

If no active joint or muscle pain is present, there is rarely discomfort. Treatments for erectile dysfunction, open wounds, scars, and most medical problems will be pain-free.

If muscular or joint pain is present, the focused shockwaves help find the source of the pain and the shockwave administer will use gentle pulses throughout the affected area. Some mild discomfort is associated with damaged tissue, but this discomfort remains quite tolerable for most patients. 

The soundwaves work to increase the blood flow to the injured area. This stimulates the body to kick off the healing process. The increased blood flow brings additional nutrients to the injured tissue, aids the formation of new blood vessels, and kickstarts the regeneration and reparation of bones and tissue.

This non-invasive therapy is quickly delivered on an outpatient basis. During treatment, you will either sit or lie on a bed and a medical professional will apply a generous amount of ultrasound gel to the injured area before placing the device on the targeted region. While the therapy is being delivered, you will experience slight discomfort but nothing unbearable. Afterwards, you are free to leave and go about your day though it is recommended to avoid anything strenuous for 48 hours.
