Shockwave Therapy can be utilized by practitioners whose professional regulatory bodies authorize its use. We strongly recommend that these practitioners receive training from our institute to ensure the highest standards of care. Please note the Medical Shockwave Institute cannot determine eligibility, we are simply the course provider.

Eligible professionals generally include Medical Doctors, Registered Physiotherapists, Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine, Osteopaths, Registered Massage Therapists, Kinesiologists, or individuals with other Health Care Provider (HCP) designations. However, it is important you contact your provincial or state licensing body as rules may vary across different jurisdictions.

Additionally, Licensed Aestheticians, ideally those certified by the Medical Shockwave Institute, are qualified to employ shockwave therapy for aesthetic applications such as skin treatments, cellulite reduction, and body contouring. It is important to note that these aesthetic treatments are not covered as health expenses.

In several countries, including Canada and the United States, shockwave therapy is not under specific regulatory oversight. However, we are committed to ensure our courses align with the highest professional standards. To this end, we actively seek and maintain registrations with various associations that recognize shockwave therapy as a valid treatment modality for their members. Our team is continually working to uphold and renew these accreditations with relevant professional associations.

It is not mandatory to own a shockwave device to enroll in our training. However, we advise being aware of the device you plan to use eventually, as the training is tailored to specific technologies and device manufacturers. If you are uncertain about selecting a device, we provide consultation services to assist you in choosing the most suitable device for your clinic’s needs and professional scope

Selecting the right shockwave therapy device depends on the specific needs of your practice and the conditions you intend to treat. There are two main types of shockwave therapy: radial pressure wave therapy and focused shockwave therapy.

a. Radial Pressure Wave Therapy: a versatile, non-invasive option particularly effective for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and muscle pain. Radial pressure waves are generally more cost-effective and are known for their extensive list of treatment benefits, making them a popular choice for many practices.

b. Focused Shockwave Therapy: allow for a more targeted treatment, making them ideal for deeper seated issues and specific conditions that require precise application. Although typically more expensive, these devices offer high precision in treating certain conditions.

Both technologies have their unique advantages, and the choice largely depends on the range of conditions you intend to treat and your budget. If you are looking for a cost-effective solution with broad applicability for musculoskeletal conditions, a radial pressure wave device could be an excellent choice for your practice.

As a licensed healthcare professional considering offering Shockwave therapy, it is essential to ensure that this treatment modality falls within your authorized scope of practice. While the Medical Shockwave Institute provides comprehensive training in Shockwave therapy, the responsibility to verify its alignment with your professional practice standards rests with you.
Ensuring you are fully authorized to perform Shockwave therapy not only adheres to professional standards but also safeguards your practice and ensures the highest quality of care for your patients.

To determine whether treating men’s health conditions is categorized as a restricted activity in your professional practice, it is essential to consult with your specific professional association or regulatory body. They are best positioned to provide accurate and up-to-date guidance on whether authorization is required to address men’s health issues within your scope of practice. This step ensures that you adhere to the appropriate professional standards and regulations applicable to your field.

Absolutely not! Our commitment is to support your professional growth and success. If you decide to expand your practice with a focal shockwave device in the future, we will provide the additional training you need at a reduced rate. This is part of our dedication to ensuring you have the tools and knowledge to excel in your field without the burden of full-cost training fees.

The choice between the Fundamentals of Radial Shockwave Therapy course and the Ultimate Radial Shockwave Therapy course should be guided by the specific conditions you frequently encounter in your practice. We recommend examining the detailed curriculum of each course to identify which aligns more closely with the needs and scope of your clinical work. This will ensure you select the course that best enhances your ability to treat the conditions most relevant to your practice.

If cost is an issue for you, the Fundamentals of Shockwave Therapy is a great option for you to immerse yourself in the shockwave community.

If you are uncertain about shockwave device to choose, we highly recommend scheduling a consultation with Uran, the founder of the Medical Shockwave Institute.

Uran’s expertise will help ensure that you invest in a shockwave device that not only meets your current needs but also supports the growth and evolution of your practice.

Not necessarily. While our training provides comprehensive coverage of many conditions, the scope of shockwave therapy is continually expanding.
