Experience better movement and reduced pain naturally.
Orthopedic Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment option for painful musculoskeletal conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis Elbow, and Achilles Tendonitis. It uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing by triggering the body’s natural immune response system (inflammation). This allows for increased blood flow and decreased scar tissue.
We also offer Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT) as an add-on to Orthopedic AWT treatments. EMTT uses high-energy magnetic fields to regenerate and rehabilitate the tissue at a cellular level. This causes the body to initiate an anti-inflammatory response, reducing pain and inflammation in affected areas.
Together, Orthopedic AWT and EMTT are potent forces in reducing pain and rebuilding the body’s natural healing processes. Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and typically require several sessions to achieve optimal results, and are highly effective as part of a patient’s regular clinical care.

Orthopedic Acoustic Wave Therapy.
The sensation during Orthopedic AWT treatment can vary depending on the area being treated and the individual’s pain tolerance, but some people describe it as a deep, intense massage or a tapping sensation. Some may feel some discomfort or mild pain during the treatment, but it should go away after the treatment.
Sessions are 30-40 mins and frequency depends on your goals and the recommended number of treatments given to you during your initial consultation.
Our experienced experts can work with you to determine the best number of sessions based on your needs and goals. Book a consultation today to learn more about the different options available for your treatment plan.
Orthopedic AWT sessions are usually quick and easy, but recovery time can vary. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately, but some may feel soreness or stiffness for a day or two. You may be told to avoid strenuous activities for a short time.
Results can vary. Some patients may improve after the first session, while others may need several sessions. Results can last for weeks, months, or years, depending on the symptoms’ severity and the patient’s overall health status.
