What's Causing Your Shoulder Pain?


Shoulder pain is often caused by damage to the rotator cuff or arthritis. We'll get to the root of what's causing your symptoms and let you know if you are a candidate for our treatment. 

What is the Treatment?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a FDA approved treatment used by professional athletes to quickly heal their shoulder issues.  In many cases it is a faster and a more effective treatment then physical therapy, cortisone injections, and certain surgeries.

Shockwave works by emitting high energy pressure waves to the injured area using an applicator connected to the Shockwave device.  These acoustic waves cause a number of biological reactions inside the shoulder joint that both relieves pain and helps the shoulder to heal.


It is called shockwave because of the sound that the device makes.  The treatment does not involve any kind of "shock" sensation.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?


Some shoulders only need 1 or 2 treatments. Other shoulders need 3 to 6 treatments for optimal pain relief and healing. The number of treatments needed can vary depending on factors including your age and the seriousness of your condition.  The number of treatments needed is best determined after we examine your shoulder.   

But, is this Treatment Right for You?

Our treatment works wonders for patients whose shoulder fits a specific set of criteria. Our first step is always to do an in-office evaluation before admitting anyone into our treatment program. We will determine in advance if your shoulder(s) are likely to respond well and what results you are likely to see.

Here Is What Some Of Our Patients Have To Say:


Lake Worth

"I came to Dr. Rappaport a mess—had severe pain in my shoulder. I had to stop playing pickleball because of the pain. My shoulder was also making it hard for me to sleep because there was no comfortable position to sleep in. My friend Vicki had her shoulder treated by Dr. Rappaport last year and he got her better in just a few treatments.  I had about 60% relief after the 1st treatment and 100% after the 3rd.  I’m back to playing pickleball again without any trouble."

Chris Shoulder


Boynton Beach

"I had a torn rotator cuff and shoulder arthritis that had caused me years of pain.  I’ve done multiple rounds of PT that helped a little and had cortisone injections that only lasted for a few weeks.  I was told that I would need surgery to clean out the arthritis and fix my rotator cuff.  I saw an ad for Dr. Rappaport’s treatment and figured I’d check it out.  I finished the treatment 8 weeks ago and I just had my follow up with him. I’m doing great.  No more pain. No more weakness and NO SURGERY."



Boynton Beach

“Frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome, arthritis, tendinitis and bursitis.  Couldn’t lift my arm above shoulder height or get my arm behind my back.  My shoulder was in constant pain.  Cortisone didn’t help so the orthopedist told me to try PRP/Stem Cells injections.  It cost me $1500 and I was no better.  I may as well as flushed that money down the toilet.  I read about shockwave treatments on Dr. Rappaport's website and made an appointment.  He told me that he could help my pain, but that he only expected my range of motion to improve by about 70%.   It took 6 shockwave treatments to get rid of the pain and significantly improve my range of motion.  Should have done this instead of wasting my money on PRP/Stem Cells.  I would recommend this treatment to anyone with shoulder problems.”

Tracey Shoulder



“I’m a 'workout fanatic' and tend to overdo it at the gym.  I’ve hurt my shoulder before but the pain usually goes away.  A couple of months ago I did something to it and since then the pain was constantly there and getting worse.  The orthopedist wanted me to do PT and I told him I didn’t have the time or desire to spend an hour, 3 times a week for the next 4 to 6 weeks doing PT. Instead, I saw Dr. Rappaport and we did 3 shockwave treatments.  Shoulder pain… gone.”

Michael Shoulder



"I’m a diabetic. Everytime I had a cortisone injection for my shoulder pain, my blood sugar went out of control.  This time when I went to the rheumatologist, he told me he wouldn’t inject my shoulder any more.  He referred me to Dr. Rappaport for shockwave treatment.  The treatments were fast and easy and got rid of the pain without messing up my blood sugar."

Helga Shoulder


Boynton Beach

"The worst problem after I first hurt my shoulder was trying to sleep. To lay anywhere on my right side hurt and if I tried to lay on my left, then there was no position where I could hold my right side up that it wouldn’t hurt too. After the treatment, I can now lay on either side without pain."

Boynton Beach

"I had severe plantar fasciitis and a heel spur in my foot.  The shockwave fixed that very quickly.  I asked if it would help my shoulder and it worked for that too."



Delray Beach

"Could not bringing my arm up to fix my hair—now, no problem. Could not raise the arm to brush my teeth—now, no problem. Could not sleep for more than a couple hours—now, I can sleep up to 6 hours at a time. Could not lift the coffee pot with the right arm—now, no problem. Dr. Rappaport and his office manager Wendy are very nice."
