In November of 2009 the American Academy of Orthopedic surgeons reported that the non-invasive use of “Shockwaves” were equally as effective as surgery for difficult to heal non union bone fractures.
Non-unions remain a major problem in the US and are still treated with invasive surgery utilizing plates and screws. Governments in several European countries have mandated the use of extracorporeal shockwave therapy before surgery. The FDA is currently evaluating this technology for use in the United States.
Low intensity shockwave therapy does not require any needles, anesthesia or cause pain or any discomfort and can be done quickly and discreetly in six, ten minute treatments in a physicians office.
This life changing therapy is now available in the Low Country. Apollo Wave utilizes a patented technology called Softwave which can easily be shown superior to all other technologies on the market. Softwave technology uses Electrohydrolic sound waves – the same type of sound waves that have been the Gold standard for 40 years to disintegrate kidney stones.
Patients need to research the device that is being offered for treatment!! There a lot of cheap devices on the market sold as “Shockwaves” that can be very painful and ineffective. Softwave technology is the current market leader in quality and outcomes.
Apollo Wave will offer this is incredible technology which promotes healing in all parts of your body.
