What is Shockwave Therapy?
Has your body been feeling a bit sore from a soft-tissue injury or maybe even normal wear-and-tear? Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive treatment that addresses many different forms of injury or chronic pain by sending sound waves through the inflamed musculoskeletal tissues. This treatment for sore muscles, stiff joints, and other forms of aches and pains is FDA-approved and can jumpstart the body's natural healing process for a quick recovery from injury. The treatment is completely noninvasive and can be performed in a matter of minutes right here at our facility in Asheville, NC. Contact Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine today to meet with Dr. Christie Lehman about the many benefits of this diverse treatment option.
"6 months post procedure: I'm walking and moving around so much better after Dr. Lehman gave me the platelet injection. My left knee has real bad arthritis and was ready for knee replacement surgery. i just didn't want that so I tried the injections and I'm doing so much better. The staff they have are super wonderful and helpful. I recommended them to 3 of my friends and they are all happy with their results...(neck, back, shoulders and knee). So much cheaper than surgery and the down time is only a day or two. I would highly recommend Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. Roberta Jennings"- B.J. / Google / Dec 11, 2023
"I've been back to this office about 4 times already. Dr. Lehman is TOP notch. Her staff, TOP notch. I live out of state and have to travel but the Dr. and staff just make the experience easier. No,getting poked a bunch of times isn't fun but this office is just awesome. HIGHLY RECOMMEND."- B. / Google / Jun 26, 2023

"Asheville Regenerative Ortho is the closest provider of Regennex treatment to my home. My company covers Regennex, and as an alternative to knee replacement (both knees) I decided to take a chance. Very happy I did. Had left knee procedure at the end of May, and that knee is almost entirely pain free now. Planning to do right knee soon. Dr Lehmann and all the staff are very professional, explained the treatment and its potential for my specific situation."- R.B. / Google / Sep 19, 2022
"I had the Regennex procedure on my left knee in May 2022. 3 months later it is nearly pain free (compared to highly painful prior). Planning to have right knee done soon. Dr. Lehman and entire staff were friendly, professional, and explained the procedure and likely outcome in detail. Very satisfied with the results so far, and hoping this delays the need for knee replacements for several years."- B.B. / Facebook / Sep 19, 2022

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
During your appointment, we'll lead you to one of our private treatment rooms and ask you to rest in a position that is both comfortable and allows us to access the injured area of the body. At that point, we'll use the shockwave handpiece to gradually go over the affected area as it subtly sends low-energy pulses of shockwave energy into the body. This can, in turn, increase blood circulation, break down calcified deposits, stimulate cell growth, and reduce pain in the area, making shockwave therapy ideal for people with joint pain, tennis and golfer's elbow, Achilles' Heel, back pain, shin splints, and more. The treatment typically takes no longer than 10 minutes and requires no downtime, allowing patients to return to their usual, daily lives.
