What is Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy?
Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy is a state-of-the-art medical treatment that harnesses the power of acoustic waves to promote tissue repair and regeneration. This non-invasive therapy has gained recognition as a safe and effective method for various musculoskeletal and soft tissue conditions, as well as other sexual health conditions, making it a valuable addition to our comprehensive physical therapy services.
Experience the Advantages
Speed up Recovery
Say goodbye to prolonged healing times. LIST stimulates natural cellular regeneration, expediting your body’s ability to repair damaged tissues and get you back on your feet faster.
Chronic pain can be a significant hindrance to your daily activities. LIST has been shown to have analgesic effects, providing much-needed relief and improving your quality of life.
Release of Trigger Points
Trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder and limbs. Delivered acoustic energy through shockwave increases blood flow to muscles to allow for relaxation and the release of trigger points.
Enhanced Tissue Strength
Strengthen your tissues from within. LIST promotes collagen production, enhancing the structural integrity and stability of your treated area, preventing future injuries.
Safe and Non-Invasive
With Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy, there’s no need for surgery or invasive procedures. Experience the benefits of LIST with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Our skilled physical therapists will assess your condition thoroughly and create a tailored treatment plan to address your unique needs. Your well-being is our priority.
Conditions Treated with Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy
Tendinitis and Tendinopathies
Heel pain / achilles tendinitis, knee pain / patellar tendinitis (jumper’s knee), shoulder pain / rotator cuff tendinopathy, elbow pain / tennis or golfer’s elbow (lateral epicondylitis), and more can benefit from LIST, reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair in the affected tendons.
Heel Pain / Plantar Fasciitis
Find relief from heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis with LIST, as it targets the inflamed fascia and aids in healing.
Muscle Strains and Tears
LIST accelerates healing for muscle injuries such as hamstring strains or quadriceps tears, helping you get back to your active lifestyle faster.
Golfers and Tennis Elbow
Manage pain and inflammation around the elbow tendons with LIST, promoting healing for golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
LIST has shown promise in breaking down calcifications in the rotator cuff tendons, reducing pain and supporting healing.
Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
LIST can be a valuable addition to frozen shoulder treatment, alleviating pain and improving shoulder mobility.
LIST aids in the healing of stress fractures, supporting bone remodeling and tissue repair.
For certain non-healing fractures, LIST has been studied as an adjunctive therapy to promote bone healing and union.
Chronic Wounds and Ulcers
Benefit from the regenerative effects of LIST for chronic wounds and ulcers, promoting faster healing.
While not curative, LIST has been explored as a potential modality to manage osteoarthritis-related pain and improve joint function.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
ED is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activity. LIST has shown promise in improving erectile function by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and increasing blood flow to the penis.
Peyronie’s disease is a condition characterized by the formation of fibrous plaques in the penis, causing curvature and sometimes painful erections. Low-intensity shockwave therapy has been investigated as a treatment to break down the plaques and reduce penile curvature.
Vasculogenic Erectile Dysfunction
Vasculogenic ED is a form of erectile dysfunction caused by insufficient blood flow to the penis. LIST can potentially help by promoting angiogenesis and improving penile blood circulation.
Post-Prostatectomy Erectile Dysfunction
After prostate cancer surgery (prostatectomy), some men may experience erectile dysfunction due to nerve damage and reduced blood flow. Low-intensity shockwave therapy has been studied as a treatment to aid in nerve regeneration and promote penile blood flow.
Pelvic and Genital Pain
Whether you’re experiencing pain in the penis, testicles, vagina, perineum, tailbone, or rectum, LIST can help promote tissue healing and improve blood flow to expedite the healing process and reduce inflammation.
Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)
Research is limited, but initial studies show promising outcomes for people suffering from distressing symptoms of PGAD/GPD with unrelenting, unprovoked feelings of arousal, pain or other dysesthesia (numbness or tingling), by helping to reduce inflammation around the spinal nerves that regulate genital functioning.
Vulvodynia / Vestibulodynia
LIST may provide a pain-free and effective treatment option for people who suffer from provoked vestibulodynia (PVD). People with PVD feel pain whenever the vestibule (the area of tissue just before the entrance to the vagina) is touched, however minimal the contact may be (e.g., having sex, doing a routine pelvic exam, or inserting a tampon).
Female Sexual Dysfunction
While most of the research on low-intensity shockwave therapy has focused on male sexual health, some studies have explored its potential benefits for female sexual dysfunction. It is hypothesized that LIST may improve genital blood flow and sensitivity in women.
