In the past, patients suffering from chronic or acute pain due to disease or injury were often faced with a difficult decision. Either they were prescribed habit-forming medication with potentially harmful side effects, weeks of intense physical therapy, or forced to undergo risky surgery depending on the source and severity of their discomfort.
A Natural Treatment for Managing Pain
AWT is a natural, noninvasive treatment approach in which mechanical vibrations are applied directly to the skin, stimulating the injured or painful area. Acoustic waves resonate at a frequency that stimulate soft tissues in the body including:
- Blood vessels
AWT utilizes focused pressure pulse wave technology delivered by a patented medical device. This method causes the tissues to vibrate and contract, thereby resulting in cell renewal and faster healing. Besides stimulating soft tissue function, AWT also increases circulation which, in turn, accelerates recovery from injuries or trauma by providing more oxygen-rich blood to the affected area, reducing inflammation and swelling.
Typically, patients will experience a tapping sensation during acoustic wave therapy, but not pain. If the sensation is uncomfortable, the intensity of the pulse can be adjusted to your comfort level. However, there is no electrical shock wave involved. Once the treatment is over, you can drive yourself home and do light exercise, such as walking or stretching, the same day. You can resume your routine activity the day after.
Who Benefits From AWT
Acoustic wave therapy is an effective treatment for a wide variety of painful conditions, including:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc herniation
- Joint pain
- Ligament tears
- Muscle pain or spasm
- Neck or back pain
- Nerve pain
- Pre- and post- surgery recovery
- Sports injuries
AWT is especially beneficial for both professional and amateur athletes in preventing injuries and speeding their recovery after practice and games. The acoustic waves target any injured areas with concentrated pulsations, thus improving circulation, reducing swelling, and helping heal torn of strained muscle tissues. It hastens recovery by increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients that reach joints, tendons, and muscles, thus accelerating cell regeneration and helping minor strains heal faster.
As such, AWT can be used after any physical activity or sports, such as:
- Track and Field
