Family member after family member, including myself, have benefited so beautifully from the services we have received from Joy Wellness Partners. Procedures that promoted healing for a torn tendon made it possible for one member to avoid surgery. Chronic back pain after a car accident was alleviated for another, whereas traditional medical intervention was not able to help. Another was able to avoid carpal tunnel surgery through the help she received at Joy Wellness. Balance has been achieved on several different levels, from injury to trauma to inflammation. I highly recommend the services Joy Wellness offers.

One shockwave treatment that lasts not very long at all, is worth a two-hour massage in my world.


Shockwave Treatment – A Message of Healing to Your Body

Shockwave therapy is an innovative therapy that uses sound waves to get to the root of the problem. It treats tendonitis, joint pain, plantar fasciitis and other musculoskeletal conditions without using pain pills and surgery. With sessions each lasting about 10 minutes, it can be a “lunch break” therapy that offers instant relief and long-term healing.

Shockwave therapy works wonders for muscle aches, joint pain, sports injuries and plantar fasciitis by delivering sound waves – like rapid, healing text messages – directly to your tissues. These messages signal your body to activate natural healing mechanisms, fostering repair and easing discomfort. This swift 10-minute treatment not only provides immediate relief but continues to rejuvenate your joints and tissues for weeks, providing long-term benefits.

Our Shockwave treatment sends healing sound waves directly to the affected areas, encouraging your body’s natural recovery. It is a comforting, massage-like therapy that initiates immediate and ongoing improvement.

During and After Treatment

During Treatment
Some patients might feel a tapping sensation that can become uncomfortable, particularly if the treated area is already sensitive or in pain. Patients can communicate throughout the session to ask the practitioner to increase or decrease the intensity for desired tolerability.

After the treatment, there may be some transient soreness or swelling, which is a normal response as the body begins its healing process. This typically resolves within a few days.

Enhancing Safety and Comfort

Trained Professionals
It is essential that Shockwave therapy be administered by a trained and experienced healthcare professional who can ensure the correct application and manage the patient’s comfort level.

Patient Selection
Not everyone is a candidate for Shockwave therapy. Prior to treatment, a healthcare provider will screen for contraindications such as bleeding disorders, pregnancies or the presence of certain medical implants.

In conclusion, while Shockwave therapy for joint pain is considered safe and can be administered with minimal pain, individual experiences may vary. Before beginning this therapy, we recommend a detailed discussion with a healthcare provider to understand the risks, benefits and expectations of the treatment.

Patients typically see improvement after a course of six sessions, which may consist of several sessions over a few weeks. However, as with any medical therapy, individual results can vary; this option may not be effective for everyone. It is always best to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if Shockwave therapy is the right course of action for your specific case.
