What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy utilizes high energy acoustic Pressure Wave technology to non-invasively treat Cohen Centers patients. This state-of-the-art and effective treatment successfully addresses acute and chronic pain.
Treatment with Shockwave Therapy is beneficial for patients because there is no downtime after the procedure, so time missing work, school or sports practice is not an issue for patients.
How does Shockwave Therapy Work?
The unique Pressure Wave technology utilizes pneumatic pressure waves that are delivered to the damaged tissue. The inflamed tissue that causes pain will begin to regenerate because of increased blood circulation created by the treatments. This hand-held device allows Cohen Centers providers to address connective tissue, muscle, and interstitial pain, providing relief to our patients. Many patients see an improvement in their pain levels after as few as one or two sessions of Shockwave Therapy.

What Type of Results does Shockwave Therapy Offer?
