We are the only clinic in Chicago utilizing the most advanced shockwave therapy devices available: the Storz Duolith focused shockwave and Miracle Wave radial shockwave. As such, we have developed many of the current shockwave protocols and host radial and focused shockwave seminars on an international platform. We treat significant conditions including joint degeneration, arthritis, scar tissue, and tendinopathies.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, rehabilitation service that stimulates the body's natural healing process. It helps relieve pain, promoting rapid recovery from sprains, fractures, and muscle pain. It accomplishes this by releasing growth factors in the injured tissue, which helps regulate tendon repair.
This treatment is considered more effective than corticosteroid injections with less risk and is more effective than stem-cell injections for regenerative effects in soft tissues and joints. As part of our whole treatment system for frozen shoulder, it is more effective than injections or surgery with a shorter recovery time.
Shockwave therapy speeds up your body's natural healing process by stimulating and enhancing blood flow to regenerate damaged tissue. It sends strong energy pulses to the affected area, triggering the body's natural healing response.
In 25-30 minutes of physical therapy, we use 8-15k of radial and focused shockwaves compared to our competitors, who only utilize 2-4k pulses over 5-10 minutes with a radial pulse machine. These pulses penetrate tissue, stimulating cell regeneration in the body.
Our patients receive both types of shockwave therapy:
● Focused shockwave therapy sends shock waves to a small area of the body.
● Radial shockwave therapy sends shockwaves to a broad area like, along the entire length of an injured muscle.
When used for athletic injuries, it can mean a quicker return to competition from traumas like sprains, pulled muscles, and fractures. As the only clinic in Chicago offering focused shockwave treatment, we are considered the gold-standard treatment for sports injuries.
If you suffer from one of the following conditions, you might be a good candidate for shockwave therapy:
● Plantar fasciitis
● Knee degeneration
● Hip degeneration
● Achilles tendinopathy
● Achilles tendon bursitis
● Frozen shoulder
● Tennis elbow
● Golfer’s elbow
● Calcific tendonitis
● Jumper’s knee
● Morton’s neuroma
● Chronic stress fractures
For many people, shockwave therapy is most effective when the body hasn’t been able to heal well on its own.
We help patients with chronic pain recover by overcoming pain and restoring ability. We do this with a detailed examination that provides clarity and a roadmap to recovery. We then use skilled physical therapy, joint and tissue manipulation, and rehabilitation to help the patient achieve consistent results.
What sets us apart:
● Two separate machines are used in treatment, providing focused and radial shockwave therapy and unparalleled results.
● A 90% plus success rate on all cases that we accept.
