Acoustic Wave Therapy is a non-invasive pain management technique that utilizes advanced Acoustic Wave Technology (AWT), also referred to Radial Shockwave Therapy (rESWT). This therapy is gentle on tissue and can help to alleviate pain on a long-term basis. AWT is clinically proven to be effective for many tendon, ligament and muscle conditions / injuries.

Acoustic Wave Therapy works by sending high-peak acoustic pressure waves into injured or inflamed tissue, triggering the body’s natural healing response and processes.
Here are just a few of the hundreds of scientific studies that show the beneficial results of Acoustic Wave Therapy:
Tennis Elbow Study — After 30 days, patients treated with AWT
reported higher improvement in all parameters, concluding that AWT
yielded superior results compared to classical physical therapies
(including the use of anti-inflamatories and application of laser and
Tendinopathies and Shockwave Therapy Study — Vasileios Dedes,
et al., showed that AWT (including rESWT) provided significant and
lasting pain relief, increased functionality, and improved quality of
life for plantar fasciitis, elbow, Achilles and rotator
Plantar Fasciopathy Study — After one year, 98% of patients successfully
responded to treatment, and the one-year recurrence rate
