Joint Health & Pain Relief

At MIMI we offer several treatments & interventions for joint & muscle health and pain relief, these include:

We often combine therapies to produce a synergistic effect and improved results.

Acoustic Wave Therapy - The Sound Approach to Pain Management

Acoustic wave therapy (AWT), also known as shock wave therapy (SWT/ESWT) or acoustic sound wave therapy, is a treatment that uses sound waves. It uses low and high-frequency sound waves to help the body to heal. AWT works by stimulating the natural healing process in the body, which dramatically reduces pain in the affected area.

AWT is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes focused pressure pulse wave technology. At MIMI this shock wave treatment is delivered using a StorzMedical Device, one of the best devices available. 

During treatment, you simply relax while the hand piece is moved over the surface of your skin, relaying the sound waves to the target area. Acoustic gel, very similar to ultrasound gel,  is used to transmit the sound waves better. During the procedure, you usually hear a loud clicking noise as the device works. This is normal. You will likely experience a tapping sensation, but the procedure is otherwise painless. If the sensation is ever uncomfortable, we can adjust the intensity of the pulse to your particular comfort level.

There is no electrical shock involved with AWT. Because of this, AWT requires no medication or anesthetics. Sessions usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Best results are obtained with several treatments. We usually recommend 3 consequtive treatments, once a week for 3 weeks initially.

AWT therapy has a high success rate. Most patients find it significantly reduces their pain.  The results are usually long-lasting. In addition, there is no downtime afterward. You can drive home after the treatment and perform light exercise, such as walking or stretching, on the day of the procedure and resume routine activities the following day.

In addition, we follow AWT treatments for musculoskeletal issues with laser and/or red light therapy producing and additive synergistic effect for pain relief.

If you have acute or chronic pain of the muscles, joints, and tendons, or dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED), you may benefit from AWT.

About our AWT device

STORZ MEDICAL AG was founded in 1987, it is located in the heart of Europe, on the Swiss shore of Lake Constance in Tägerwilen. Storz Medical continues to develop innovative shockwave systems and devices of the highest precision. 


The Storz D-ACTOR® utilizes advanced radial pressure wave technology (EPAT) and is a proven solution to treat a large array of acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain. 

Below are some of the main areas the D-ACTOR® can treat: 

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy 

How does PEMF therapy work?

Pulsed PEMF therapy sends magnetic energy into the body. These energy waves work with your body’s natural magnetic field to improve healing. The magnetic fields help you to increase electrolytes and ions. This naturally influences electrical changes on a cellular level and influences cellular metabolism. It works with your body’s own recovery processes to help relieve chronic pain. Best of all, it’s entirely safe.

Ultimately, the human body requires electricity to sign signals throughout the body and to your brain. PEMF therapy effectively can realign the electricity in your cells. When a cell is stimulated, it allows positive charges to enter a cell in an open ION channel. The inside of this cell becomes positively charged, which will trigger other electrical currents, turning into pulses. This can positively influence movement, healing, and sending of signals. Any disruption in electrical currents can lead to dysfunction or illness. Pulsed PEMF therapy helps restore this disruption in electrical current to the normal state, which promotes overall wellness.

Who do we recommend PEMF therapy to?

We recommend this to patients with pain or dysfunction in their:

We also recommend this pulsed therapy to patients suffering from:

During a consult, we can determine if your condition or injury warrants the use of PEMF therapy.

Benefits of PEMF therapy

Some of the most common benefits of this therapy include:

Recharge your cells and reduce inflammation and pain with PEMF therapy

When you’re looking for ways to improve your health and reduce pain and discomfort, PEMF therapy may be something to consider. To learn if you’re a good candidate for this therapy, call our office today.

Infrared (IR) Therapy

Infrared light waves, unlike red light, are invisible to the naked eye, but you can feel its warmth. Infrared light therapy’s most natural source is the sun. However, you can gain the benefits of infrared without risking sunburn.

Infrared light therapy is especially helpful if you experience acute or chronic pain, muscle issues and circulation problems. Because it penetrates deep below the skin layers, it provides a greater range of healing from the inside. The penetration ultimately increases blood flow, which helps to repair injuries or bodily trauma.

Infrared therapy has many roles in the human body including:

At MIMI our IR device is paired with one of our PEMF devices in a full body crystal mat (the Infinity Mat by Innergy Development). With this device you get 3 therapies in one. 

Laser & Red Light (AKA Photobiomodulation) Therapy

While NASA did not discover red light therapy (RLT) per se, they played a significant role in the development and research of light therapy technologies. This  included red light therapy for astronauts who might become injured or ill on long-term space missions. Light emitting diode (or LED) therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treatment for a variety conditions. 

Low-Level Laser Light Therapy (LLLT Class 3 B) lasers, emit light energy that can:

At MIMI we use MedX Red Light and Laser therapy devices.  All MedX Photo therapy low level laser devices have the following indications of use by FDA: 

"...the energy emitted provides temporary increase in micro-circulation, temporary relief of minor muscle and join aches, pains and stiffness, relaxation of muscles; for muscle spasms, minor pain and stiffness associated with arthritis."

Injection Therapy - under construction

We often preceed injection therapy with Acoustic Wave Therapy to enhance blood flow to the area we are treating. And, as with Acoustic Wave Therapy, most of our injection Therapies are then followed by Laser and/or Red Light Therapy as well, creating a synergistic healing response.
