Shockwave therapy is a regenerative therapy for musculoskeletal tissues, it has the ability to renew, regenerate and restore areas of damage in your body. It has been researched and shown to stimulate cellular regeneration and stimulate growth factors. That is, replacing old and damaged cells with new, healthy cells. It is also shown in research to influence your stem cell's ability to turn into cartilage in your joints. Shockwave therapy has also shown undisputable clinical success when addressing pain in soft tissues. It does so through complex pathophysiological mechanisms. Shockwave therapy can be used to identify and treat areas of dysfunction that aren't found in traditional imaging techniques. Trigger points, spasms and muscle tension, even referred pain patterns can be easily identified and treated using this therapy. Shockwaves can also induce the formation of new nerves, new capillaries and increase intercellular communication for improvement in overall function making it a great conservative treatment option for a variety of conditions.
Shockwave is clinically relevant for the following conditions:
After a medical exam of your condition has found it to be appropriate for shockwave therapy, a therapist will apply skin gel to the treatment area to allow the shock waves to be introduced into the body without any loss of energy. After these preparations, shock waves are applied as the therapy head is moved over the pain region in a circular motion. After only 1 to 2 sessions, many patients report complete pain relief or significant pain reduction. The therapy eliminates pain and/ or restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.
Each therapy session takes between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the disorder to be treated. In general, an average of 4 to 8 treatments are necessary at intervals prescribed.
After only 1 to 2 sessions, many patients report complete pain relief or significant pain reduction. The therapy eliminates pain and/ or restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.
Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance. In modern pain therapy, low-energy shock waves are applied to the painful body regions where they can exert their curative action. Shock waves can accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation; damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal. Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this therapy approach. If performed by qualified therapists, extracorporeal shock wave therapy of musculoskeletal pain has minimal risks and side effects.
