How Does ShockWave Therapy Work?
Shockwave Therapy induces microtrauma to the tissue that is affected by problems, which will initiate a healing response by the body. Shockwave treatment could be both high-energy and low-energy, and both forms can be used in the treatment of plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and calcific tendonitis. The LeJeune Integrated Medical Centers’ experts may suggest shockwave therapy if conservative measures have failed you. This type of therapy can be a safe alternative to surgery.
Focused Shockwave therapy is a quick and powerful non-surgical therapy for acute and chronic pain in muscles, ligaments, and joints.
A shock wave is a strong pressure wave that can be delivered by supersonic airplane, lightning, explosions, or other natural phenomena that make quick changes in pressure. Shockwave Therapy has been utilized in medication to treat kidney stones for a very long time. In the mid 1980’s, utilization of shockwave treatment to treat non-healing bone fractures was found. The tissue and cellular effects were turning out to be more well defined and obviously Shockwave Therapy could be utilized to stimulate healing and recovery of bone, ligament, tendon and numerous different tissues.
Lately, the utilization of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) in medicine has been portrayed favorably many times. Outcome in treating muscular problems has been well documented in countless studies.
Our Shockwave Therapy utilizes acoustic shock waves to target injuries at different profundities to pack and control the tissue. The results of this stimulus can lead to increased circulation and relief from pain – Key parts in the healing process.
