According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States, 24% of all adults (or 58.5 million people) have arthritis.
It is a leading cause of work disability, with annual costs for medical care and lost earnings of $303.5 Billion.
These figures are pretty significant! Almost 1/4 of the nation's population is dealing with pain caused by arthritis, but not many of them know that shockwave therapy is an option for pain relief.
Shockwave therapy for arthritis is perhaps the most effective healing treatment available.
It works best when multiple treatments are provided over the course of several weeks with repeat follow-ups to maintain your pain levels.
Many patients notice reduced stress and pain after the first session. And, with consistent treatment combined with improving posture, exercise, and diet, patients may be able to live with only minor discomfort.
