What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy has been clinically proven to accelerate metabolic functions and is a convenient alternative to steroids or surgery and other medication injections. It stimulates enzymes involved in pain reduction and accelerates the healing process, leading to a high success rate in healing complicated, typically chronic, and excruciatingly painful injuries.
Shockwaves are a natural phenomenon occurring in nature when lightning strikes or a plane exceeds the speed of sound. In medicine, it has been used to break up kidney stones without the need for surgery for 40 years. Over 25 years ago it was discovered shockwaves could cause bones that wouldn’t heal to spontaneously heal again. Scientists realized that shockwaves, a special type of sound, were able to cause bone, tendon, ligament and other cells to regenerate and finish healing in even the oldest of chronic injuries.
Until then, injuries like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, jumpers knee, hip bursitis, shin splints, stress fractures, calcific tendonitis deposits and others were often difficult to impossible to heal. Shockwave has emerged as one of the only treatments that reliably makes tendon to bone or ligament to bone junction injuries heal. The high-energy acoustic waves non-surgically penetrate the soft tissues, targeting damaged areas, stimulating new blood vessel growth and regeneration in bones, tendons and ligaments.
The Shockwave Therapy Process – How It Works and What to Expect
During the shockwave therapy process, powerful energy pulses are applied to the patient’s pain-causing region. The therapy uses precisely calibrated shockwaves to treat your wounded tissue, which causes microscopic bubbles in the tissue that burst and increase blood circulation, stem cell activity, and pain-relieving enzymes in the targeted area. Shockwave therapy relieves pain following treatment while also promoting long-term tissue stabilization and repair.
Shockwave therapy is a highly successful and useful treatment option when other treatments have failed. It is critical to rest the wounded area for 24 hours before and after therapy and keep doing the rehabilitation exercises that have been prescribed. The optimal results can take anywhere from six to ten weeks after the final treatment, depending on how persistently you do the exercises.
