Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment using high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing and alleviate pain in various musculoskeletal conditions.

How Does Shockwave
Therapy Work?

Shockwave therapy involves using high-energy sound waves to increase blood flow to an injured area. When these waves reach the body, they interact with tissues, triggering the body’s natural healing response by stimulating cell regeneration.

What Injuries Can Be Treated?

FDA Approved

The Chattanooga Intelect® F-SW™ shockwave therapy device has FDA approval to administer noninvasive treatments for pain and post-activity recovery.


How long does shockwave treatment take?

Shock wave treatment is usually administered once a week over the course of four weeks, and this way we make sure you get the most out of your treatment. The recovery period typically takes 24 hours.

Are there side effects?

Side effects of shockwave therapy are rare, however some patients may
experience discomfort during the treatment process. Swelling, bruising, or surface skin redness may also occur.

Is it covered by insurance?

Many insurance policies consider this type of treatment as elective or non-essential, and as a result, regrettably, shock wave therapy is typically not covered by insurance plans.
