Shockwave Therapy in Toms River

laser beamIf you’ve been sidelined by chronic pain and are looking for a drug-free, non-surgical way to get relief, we offer shockwave therapy at Family First Chiropractic.

How Does It Work?

Shockwave therapy promotes healing by focusing high-energy waves on areas afflicted by chronic pain. This therapy can effectively manage persistent inflammation and discomfort by improving blood flow and vessel growth, encouraging collagen production, and expediting cell growth and tissue repair.

Who Can Benefit?

One of the fantastic benefits of shockwave therapy is it can address so many conditions, and it’s especially beneficial for those with chronic issues that have been resistant to other therapies or treatments.

If you have any of the following, you may benefit from shockwave therapy:

  • Ankle pain
  • Back pain
  • Golfer’s/tennis elbow
  • Hamstring injuries
  • Heel spurs
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tendonitis

Please note that shockwave therapy is not recommended for patients with certain medical contraindications.

Customized to Your Needs

The shockwave therapy machine at our office has a user-friendly interface. The machine features a body diagram on its screen, allowing Dr. Rob to select the specific body area for treatment, automatically adjusting the settings accordingly.

While the machine’s default settings are generally comfortable for most patients, causing only slight pressure or a mild pinching sensation, we can further customize these settings. For example, if a patient experiences more discomfort, we can adjust the frequency, intensity, and even the choice of the tip.

Sometimes, patients may experience some soreness after the first session, but it’s similar to what you may feel after working out for the first time in a while. With shockwave therapy, we can modify the settings to reduce any potential discomfort in future treatments. We always aim to ensure patient comfort throughout the therapy while using the appropriate settings for each treated area.

FAQ

How long will a session take, and how many will I need?

Each session takes about 3-5 minutes, and we recommend patients come in twice a week, but we are adaptable to schedules and budgets. Typically 8-10 sessions are needed for significant improvement.

Is maintenance care needed?

No. Unlike regular chiropractic adjustments, shockwave therapy doesn’t require ongoing treatment once the course is completed. Some people opt for maintenance sessions for peace of mind, although it’s not always necessary.

Is there any downtime required afterward?

No, patients can return to their daily activities without restrictions after therapy.
