Shockwave Therapy


Acoustic Wave Therapy may be right for you!

Storz acoustic wave therapy is a non-invasive pain management technique that utilizes advanced Acoustic Wave Technology (AWT), also referred to as Radial Shockwave Therapy (rESWT). Storz Miracle Wave 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.

HOW DOES IT WORK? The Miracle Wave works by sending high-peak acoustic pressure waves into injured or inflamed tissue, triggering the body’s natural healing response and processes. The acoustic wave (shockwaves) stimulate angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), stem cell proliferation, and collagen synthesis.  Three necessary processes for recovery.  Discs, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, meniscus, labrum, can be slow to heal if heal at all on their own as they have a poor blood supply, shockwave therapy will increase blood flow and increase stem cells and collagen production to help heal soft tissues.  Our clinic carries a storz focus and radial shockwave unit as is one of only 3 clinis in state to carry both units.  Radial shockwave is effective for muscle and tendons issues and focus shockwave for joint, ligament, cartilage, issues.


  • Effective pain relief and management
  • Accelerated recovery
  • Minimized re-injury
  • No anesthesia or drugs
  • Little to no downtime
  • Quick treatments

Conditions shockwave can help with

  • Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis (shoulder, wrist, knee, elbow, foot/ankle/Achilles)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Mild to moderate meniscus tears
  • Mild to moderate arthritis
  • Mild to moderate labral tears (hip and shoulder)
  • Stress fractures
  • Non-union fractures
  • Sports hernia
  • Trigger finger, dequervain’s tenosynovitis
  • Mild ot moderate rotator cuff tears
  • And many others

Most conditions respond to full activity with 4-8 treatments with shockwave. 


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-inflammatories and the application of laser and ultrasound).

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 cuff tendinopathies.

Plantar Fasciopathy Study — After one year, 98% of patients successfully responded to treatment and the one-year recurrence rate
was 8%

Patient quotes

“What a relief! I have been struggling with knee pain and patellar tendonitis for two years and was unable to run or lift weights.  After six sessions of shockwave therapy, I was able to return to the gym and have started running again.  I am so happy I found this technology” -Lindsey

“I am a golfer and have had elbow tendonitis over the past couple of golf seasons to where I can only play once a week because of the pain. After four sessions of shockwave therapy, I am playing three times a week without pain” -Steve

“This thing is amazing. I have struggled with plantar fasciitis for six months and have been unable to go on walks for more than a few minutes.  After six sessions of shockwave therapy, I am now walking pain-free” -Suzie
