stemwave therapy

At Fitness Genome, we are proud to offer StemWave® Therapy treatment to our clients.

StemWave® Therapy is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment that utilizes an electrohydraulic system to send acoustic waves through the body to stimulate it’s natural healing processes, targeting areas affected by pain, injury, or chronic conditions. This innovative therapy is grounded in the science of Extra-hydraulic Shock Wave Therapy, which has been extensively researched and proven to be effective in treating various musculoskeletal disorders.

The technology behind StemWave® Therapy involves generating low-intensity shock waves that penetrate the skin and tissue, promoting increased blood flow, collagen production, and the breakdown of calcified fibroblasts. This process not only accelerates tissue repair and regeneration but also reduces inflammation and alleviates pain without the need for medications or surgery.

At Fitness Genome, we utilize the latest in StemWave® technology to provide our San Diego patients with a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment option, setting them on a faster path to recovery and improved physical wellness.  If you are suffering from acute or chronic pain or inflammation, StemWave® Therapy can give you the relief that you’ve been looking for.
