What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?
WaveTech uses sound waves delivered through a patented, FDA-cleared device to provide healing to conditions such as Erectile Dysfunction, Chronic Pain, Peripheral Neuropathies, Diabetic Wounds and Sports Injuries such as Tennis elbow. This therapy has been used in the United States since the 1980s. The first clinical use of the therapy was to break up kidney stones (Lithotripsy).
The sound waves used to break up kidney stones are concentrated high-intensity waves. Over 15 years ago a group in Germany, after years of research, began using the same technology but at a lower intensity to provide healing to soft tissue conditions.
How does Acoustic Wave Therapy work?
When the cells in the body are exposed to low-intensity sound waves several beneficial effects occur.
• Blood vessel and nerve cells are regenerated
• Inflammation is reduced
• Stem cells (healing cells) are recruited to the area
• Pain is reduced
• New blood vessels grow
What conditions does the therapy address?
Since areas impacted get improved blood supply, stem cell recruitment, decrease in inflammation and nerve regeneration the therapy is useful for many conditions.
• Erectile Dysfunction
• Peripheral Neuropathy
• Wound healing
• Chronic pain
• Tendonitis such as Tennis elbow and Plantar fasciitis
• Sports Injuries
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
• Loss of feeling
• Sharp pain
• Burning sensation

What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
What causes ED?
What can we do when ED symptoms occur?
What can I expect during my therapy?
For most conditions our trained staff uses the SoftWave applicator to apply 1500 to 2000 waves to the area of concern. The therapy is painless. Most therapy protocols consist of 2-6 applications.
Is it painful?
Not at all – it is pain-free. If we are dealing with a sports injury or tendonitis, there may be some discomfort in the injured area, but it resolves during the appointment. You are the guide during this process.
Is the appointment covered by insurance?
Not at this time. You may use your Health Savings Plan/Flexible Spending cards to pay for the appointment.
Do you offer financing?
Are consults free?
