Miracle Wave Therapy is a method of treating many conditions with sound waves that are low-frequency, high-intensity. The waves penetrate into the body, providing a non-invasive and painless treatment that is well suited for a wide range of conditions, including sports injuries, arthritis, muscle pain, and fibromyalgia. The technology used in Miracle Wave Therapy is also known as Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT).
Shockwave therapy can offer pain relief, from mild to chronic pain, and improve quality of life. Areas of the body and conditions that shockwave therapy can treat include:

Shockwave therapy starts with an initial consultation and diagnosis, during which time the patient discusses their symptoms with the doctor. If the patient is a good candidate based on the description of their symptoms, the doctor will review the patient’s medical history and perform an examination of the area needing treatment. If the doctor determines that shockwave therapy is ideal for their situation, they will discuss the expectations for the treatment.
Before proceeding with the shockwave therapy treatment, the performing doctor will locate the area to ensure it gets the attention it needs. After locating the treatment area, the doctor will apply a sufficient amount of gel on the surface of the skin to help the sound waves travel through the body tissues more easily. Once the gel has been applied, the shockwave therapy machine is placed adjacent to the area and turned on. The electrical charge created by the device produces a focused energy wave that targets the treatment area; these acoustic waves create a force on the soft tissues, inducing a healing response.
The time it takes for shockwave therapy to work is different in every situation and varies based on a number of factors unique to each patient, including:
– The condition being treated
– The severity of the condition being treated
– How the patient responds to the treatment
– The patient’s overall health
– The patient’s desired results
Over 90% of all patients feel an improvement on the first treatment. Because shockwave therapy is a manual treatment, it may take some time for the results to become apparent; some patients report feeling immediate pain relief following treatment, while others experience significant pain-relieving results after several weeks.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be used for nerve regeneration; it has been proven to promote nerve health in a variety of ways, including enabling a faster rate of axonal regeneration; improving the clearance of degenerated axons, and enhancing the ability to repair damaged axons.
For arthritis, shockwave therapy is one of the most effective treatments currently available. The exact mechanisms at play are not fully understood, however, shockwave therapy works in a variety of ways. For example, it is believed that the pressure from the shockwaves alters the cell properties, causing healing and restructuring. In addition, for the treatment of pain, the current scientific understanding is that the shockwaves stun the nerve responsible for transmitting signals to the brain, resulting in a reduction of pain. The last way that shockwave therapy works is by breaking up calcific deposits in the tendons and joints, leading to a reduction in pain levels.
