What is Shockwave (Softwave) Therapy?
Whether you have a chronic condition or an injury that isn’t completely healed, shockwave therapy can help.
Shockwave therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is non-invasive, using low-frequency, acoustic (sound) waves to kick-start your body’s natural healing responses. This is particularly effective for tissues that have not responded to other therapies.
If you are now considering surgery after trying medications, rest, steroid injections or other therapies, Shockwave Therapy may be right for you.
Function Better Physical Therapy Mega Center in Yorkville, NY, begins with a private, no-obligation initial consultation to ensure the shockwave therapy is right for your condition.
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
The hand-held device generates low-frequency waves. A conducting gel (like ultrasound gel) on your skin allows the transmission of these waves to the injury.
You will probably find your pain significantly reduced after the first appointment. Still, some patients need 4 to 6 sessions to feel much better. Your body continues to heal between treatments, so you’ll continue improving.
Shockwave treatments dilute neuropeptides that cause pain in injured tissues. Other chemical changes reduce tissue inflammation, which further reduces your pain.
Increased Blood Supply
Repeated shock waves stimulate the growth of new blood vessels that increase the blood supply to injured tissues. With more nutrients and oxygen, tissues heal faster and more completely.
Repair of inflamed tissues sets off a cascade of natural healing reactions in cells to stimulate tissue regeneration.
