NOVOWave™ Therapy in Los Angeles, CA

You don't have to be a doctor with a diagnostic tool to know you have chronic pain - if it lasts longer than 12 weeks, it's chronic.

Whether it's degenerative or post-surgical, about 30% of Americans struggle with it, and many of them turn to highly addictive narcotic medication. Opioid drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. The other traditional treatment is surgery, which brings its own risks and doesn't always offer long-term relief.

That's why the regenerative specialists at Novus Anti-Aging Center offer non-invasive Shockwave Therapy. This innovative evidence-based therapy applies externally generated pressure waves to pain-plagued tissue almost anywhere in the body.

Our pain experts deliver non-evasive, non-electrical high energy waves into injured body regions to break down scar tissue, increase circulation, stimulate cell regeneration, and promote your body's natural healing ability.

If you've had it with chronic pain and all the risky traditional treatments that haven't provided long-term relief, try this regenerative solution by calling Novus Anti-Aging Center's highly-skilled, compassionate pain management specialists at (310) 954-1450 or contact us here.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Just like an airplane can shatter car windows by breaking the sound barrier with a supersonic boom our Shockwave Therapy may shatter your painful scar tissue and smooth it out.

Like glass, scar tissue is non-elastic, so it restrains normal movement, damages surrounding tissue, and causes pain.

Shockwave Therapy functions like a controlled explosion. Low frequency acoustic shockwaves travel painlessly through damaged tissue where they:

  • exert pressure on stimulated cells
  • create interaction between free radicals and bio-molecules in those cells
  • increase blood circulation in the target area
  • break down fibrous scar tissue
  • decrease calcification
  • stimulate cell regeneration
  • reduce pain
  • improve muscle spasticity
  • restore normal motor function
  • enable quicker return to sports

Whether you're struggling with orthopedic conditions, internal organ dysfunctions, or aesthetic concerns, Shockwave Therapy may help regenerate your damaged, scarred, or calcified tissue.

What conditions does Shockwave Therapy treat?

Because it functions on the cellular level, stimulating regeneration of tissues, bones, and organs Shockwave Therapy is useful for a wide range of conditions, some more clinically validated than others. These conditions fall into the following categories:

Orthopedic Conditions

Shockwave Therapy treats bone fractures, Jumper's knee, shoulder tendinitis, epicondylitis of the elbow and other orthopedic damage by activating mast cells which produce chemokines and cytokines that stimulate cell regeneration. A study published in the Journal of Orthopedic Surgery demonstrated that administered shockwaves led to comparable functional outcomes as surgery, but without the risks. Only minor complications like redness, swelling and migraine headaches were observed.1

Ischemic Heart Disease

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy serves a dual function while treating heart disease: first, shockwaves are delivered in synchronization with a patient's R-wave to avoid arrhythmias, then ischemic areas are identified and treated with those shockwaves.

Urological Conditions

The most common treatment for kidney stones in the US is shock wave lithotripsy, a technique that passes high energy waves through stones in the kidney and ureter to break them into pieces as small as grains of sand, which can pass through the urinary tract.

Sexual Health Conditions

Low energy acoustic waves can improve low penal blood flow, which is often the cause of erectile dysfunction, and can also break down the scar tissue and penal curvature caused by Peyronie's Disease.

Aesthetic Conditions

Skillfully applied low-frequency sound waves can break up cellulite - the persistent subcutaneous fat causing skin dimpling on hips and thighs.

Shockwave Therapy Procedure

Before their Shockwave Therapy session patients are usually given a topical numbing cream to help them remain still and reduce possible discomfort.

A Novus pain specialist will gently administer low-frequency sound waves, focusing the acoustic pulse directly on scar tissue cells to break them up, and to stimulate regeneration of dormant cells. Our skilled technicians are able to accomplish this with minimal collateral damage.

It often takes at least 6 treatments to resolve a chronic condition. We recommend you book consecutive weekly sessions to gain the full benefits of Shockwave Therapy.

There are no known side effects of this innovative treatment. Occasionally, patients have experienced mild pain within a few hours of treatment that lasted 24 hours at most. Many patients experience pain reduction by that time.

Who is not a candidate for Shockwave Therapy?

Although this therapy is regenerative, it may harm bodies with increased sensitivities or other conditions competing for immune response. Shockwave Therapy may cause contraindications in:

  • patients under 18 years of age
  • patients with infections
  • pregnant women or women trying to conceive
  • patients with open growth plates or metal pins
  • patients with malignant tumors
  • patients with nerve or circulation disorders
  • patients taking anticoagulant medications
