Piezoelectric Impulse Therapy
Piezoelectric Impulse Therapy (or Piezo) is an electromagnetic impulse that has the capacity to stimulate one's body to recover from both acute and chronic injuries. Through this unique approach of electromagnetic impulses or shock waves, Piezoelectric Impulse Therapy stimulates the muscle, tendon, bone, and cartilage to begin the healing cascade. The impulses from the piezoelectric system are delivered directly to the injured tissues. The focus of the healing cascade is now at reducing inflammation and pain to the injured region, promoting quick and aggressive healing and minimizes (or even eliminates) poor or scarred recovery.
Piezoelectric treatment is a new and innovative treatment that has only recently become available in the United States for patient care.
Dr. Thomas Hecker uses the most advanced shockwave system. Unlike other methods that use low impact air impulse, Piezo is a unique electromagnetic impulse system that stimulates tissue, requiring fewer treatments with greater success.
