Shockwave Therapy in Charlotte, NC

Struggling with persistent pain from a chronic condition or soft tissue injury that limits your daily activities or ability to return to your favorite sports? We’ve got you covered!

Here at Advanced Sports & Spine, we offer  extracorporeal shockwave therapy in Charlotte, NC, near Fort Mill, SC, to help you regain mobility, reduce pain, and get back to enjoying your life. This non-surgical (non-invasive) treatment utilizes ultrasound waves that penetrate the skin’s surface to promote cellular repair and regeneration.

Contrary to its name, shockwave therapy doesn’t involve electrical shocks. Instead, it uses pulses of acoustic energy to create microtrauma within the injured tissue, thereby increasing blood circulation and stimulating the release of growth factors that promote healing and reduce pain in the soft tissues.

Shockwave therapy is safe and highly effective for treating a variety of conditions without the need for surgery or medication. Dr. Ahmad can also use it with other regenerative medicine techniques like stem cell and PRP therapy to accelerate the healing of sports or soft tissue injuries.

Dr. Ahmad Uses The Intelect RPW2

Dr. Ahmad, our board-certified physiatrist in Charlotte, NC, uses the Intelect RPW2 to generate high-energy acoustic waves, which are then focused and directed to the desired treatment area. This innovative device allows him to adjust the shockwaves’ intensity, frequency, and depth to suit each patient’s needs, ensuring optimal therapeutic outcomes.

The Benefits Of Getting Shockwave Therapy in Our Charlotte, NC Office

Here are some of the benefits our shockwave therapy offers to patients suffering from chronic pain and musculoskeletal conditions:

Non-invasive: Unlike surgery or injections, shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment. This eliminates the need for anesthesia and minimizes risks associated with invasive or traditional treatments.

Painless: While some patients may experience mild discomfort during the treatment, it’s generally well-tolerated, and pain medication is usually not required.

Effective and safe: Studies have shown shockwave therapy to be a safe and highly effective option in treating various chronic pain conditions.

Faster recovery: Compared to traditional therapies, shockwave therapy has minimal downtime and can accelerate your healing process, allowing you to return to your daily activities sooner.

Long-lasting results: While some treatments offer temporary relief, shockwave therapy targets the root cause of the pain, promoting long-term healing and symptom management. Many patients experience long-term pain relief and improvement in mobility and function following shockwave therapy sessions.

Versatile Applications: Shockwave therapy can address various musculoskeletal conditions, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, jumper’s knee, chronic back pain, and more.

Affordable and personalized treatment: We put our patients first and believe in providing high-quality healthcare solutions that are not only accessible and affordable but also personalized to meet the unique needs of our patients. We are a non-facility fee office, so our practice is not controlled or owned by any hospital. That’s why our patients pay less compared to shockwave treatments received in hospitals and enjoy minimal wait times in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

frequently asked questions

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses the power of ultrasound waves to accelerate the healing of soft tissue injuries. This safe and non-invasive treatment promotes cellular repair and regeneration and offers fast, effective, and long-lasting relief from pain and discomfort.

How Much Is The Cost?

The treatment cost depends on two main factors: The severity of your condition and how many areas of the body you want to treat. Dr. Ahmad typically recommends 4 to 6 sessions for acute injuries (less than 3 months old) and 8 to 12 sessions for chronic conditions. After your initial examination and review of diagnostic findings, Dr. Ahmad will be able to determine the amount of sessions you need and your treatment cost.

Is Shockwave Therapy Covered By Insurance?

Unfortunately, most insurance plans do not cover shockwave therapy, so the treatments are self-pay. However, we offer the most competitive pricing in the Carolinas with many different financing options to make high-quality care available to everyone.

How Long Does It Last?

A single treatment typically takes about 15 minutes but can range from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the condition’s severity and the size of the treatment area. The effects of shockwave therapy can last for several months or even up to a year or more. However, the duration of these results depends on the specific condition being treated and how your body naturally responds to the therapy.

How Is The Procedure Done?

The shockwave procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment in our pain management office in Charlotte, NC, near Fort Mill, SC. Dr. Ahmad uses the Intelect RPW2 to generate high-energy acoustic waves, which are then focused and directed to the desired treatment area and adjusted to meet the patient’s needs.

When Do You Do The Procedures?

Dr. Ahmad and his team will thoroughly examine your area of complaint, review your medical history, provide you with a complete diagnosis procedure, and recommend the best course of action to help eliminate and reduce your pain.
