A shockwave is defined as a wave with a rapid increase of pressure within a very short time and then having a gradual decrease of pressure with a small negative pressure phase. shockwave is aimed at the affected area that is the source of chronic pain, the influence of the shockwaves causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effect is relief from the pain.
1. By the targeted application of the shockwaves, stress to the surrounding tissues is quite insignificant.
2. The body not burdened by pharmaceuticals, except the short-term effect of local anesthesia is used.
3. The possibility of preventing the necessity of surgical intervention and its relevant hazards.
4. For some indications, such as tennis elbow, there is really no other effective treatment.

FAQs of Shockwave Therapy Machine
1.Does Shockwave work on cellulite?
Other than treating chronic pain, ShockWave Therapy has been studied and shown to be effective for cellulite treatment. Undergoing shockwave therapy disrupts the fibrous tissue responsible for the uneven appearance on the skin.
2.How is Schockwave Therapy Performed?
ShockWave Therapy (or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)) targets fat fibers with powerful sound waves in much the same way it’s been breaking up kidney stones for years. Our highly skilled practitioners use an FDA cleared soundwave device to direct vibrating waves against your fibrous tissue, shattering it, so your body can safely expel it.
3.Do I need anesthesia for the therapy?
ShockWave Therapy is done in a comfortable treatment room in the office without any need of anesthetic or pain medication.
4.Is Shockwave Therapy painful?
The providers at Contemporary Health Center minimize the discomfort of the treatment by skillfully manipulating the tissue and the direction of the pressure wave pulses. For most areas, such as the thighs and buttocks, the discomfort is minimal. You will feel a strong vibration during the procedure, but there won’t be any major discomfort.
The tenderness felt during or just after completion of the treatment may be moderate, but typically passes in 48 hours or less. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce the level of discomfort until it passes.
5.Are there side effects?
Unlike surgery or medications, Shockwave Therapy causes few or no side effects. You will feel a strong vibration during the procedure, but there won’t be any major discomfort. Afterward, you may experience slight discomfort, redness, hematomas, skin lesions with cortisone use,bruising, swelling, or sensitivity that will resolve on its own. Sensitivity and bruising may last up to 10 days before resolving. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce the level of discomfort until it passes.
6.When will I see results?
You may see some visible results after 1 session. Most patients, though, will see visible results after 4-5 treatments. It often takes 6 or more treatments to achieve more dramatic changes to the condition. Full benefits, though, will take up to 3 months to develop as the damaged tissue is expelled and new healthier tissue develops.
