If you are suffering from a painful musculoskeletal condition but are wary of undergoing invasive surgery, there is an effective alternative treatment option you should be aware of.
Acoustic wave therapy (AWT), sometimes called shock wave therapy, is a non-invasive regenerative treatment option that uses high-frequency sound waves to stimulate healing in affected muscles and joints. It is also an effective treatment option for erectile dysfunction (ED).
AWT has been used to treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions, including:
- Shoulder tendinitis, which causes pain and inflammation of the tendons of your shoulder joint.
- Tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain and tenderness in your elbow due to the overuse of the muscles and tendons in the forearms.
- Patellar tendinitis is a disorder that causes pain and inflammation of the patellar tendon, which connects your kneecap to your shinbone.
- Achilles tendonitis is a condition that causes pain and swelling in the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone.
- Planter fascia, which causes heel pain and stiffness due to inflammation of the band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes.
Let’s talk about how this innovative technology promotes healing and where you can go for this therapy in Caldwell, New Jersey.
HowDoesAcoustic Wave Therapy Work
Acoustic wave therapy is a non-surgical treatment option that requires no medication or anesthetics. AWT involves the use of a device that emits a high-energy acoustic wave in a focused, pressure pulse wave pattern when applied to the area in which you are experiencing pain. The acoustic waves travel through your skin and into the tissue, where they create micro-trauma that stimulates your body’s natural healing processes. It increases blood flow and promotes tissue regeneration.
As such, AWT offers an effective, non-invasive approach to restoring mobility and improving function in patients dealing with chronic and acute pain conditions, as well as those men with erectile dysfunction. In fact, clinical research shows that AWT therapy has a high success rate, with many patients experiencing significant and long-lasting improvement in their symptoms.
What’s more, the treatment is a quick, painless, and convenient office procedure with no downtime and minor, if any, side effects such as temporary swelling or soreness. If the sensation produced by the treatment is uncomfortable, the intensity of the pulse can be adjusted. Once your treatment session is over, you can drive home, and light exercise, such as walking or stretching, can be done the same day, and routine activity can resume the day after.
