Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy | Concord Chiropractor

When you have chronic pain, it can affect everything you do in your life. Having daily pain is no way to live, especially when the pain is in an avoidable area. At Olson Chiropractic, we offer a form of therapy to help you recover from injuries and overcome the related pain quickly. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a safe treatment alternative to surgery and may benefit patients who have found no success with traditional treatment approaches.

ESWT has been around as a physical therapy modality for 20 years. Professional athletes in respected organizations like the NBA plagued by injuries have received ESWT and recovered with great success for many years. This therapy has been shown to effectively treat sports injuries, shoulder injuries, tendon injuries, ligament injuries, Golfer’s and Tennis elbow, Jumper’s knee, chronic heel pain, muscle pain, and other soft tissue injuries.

 

Benefits Of Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy improves many injuries by providing the following benefits:

  • Stimulates blood vessel and collagen production
  • Increases blood flow and nutrient delivery to injured tissue
  • Increases lymphatic drainage
  • Reduces pain and swelling
  • Completely non-invasive
  • Has no downtime

 

How Acoustic Wave Therapy

Acoustic Wave Therapy is a trigger point treatment that uses acoustic waves or shockwaves to induce microtrauma to injured tissues. This microtrauma stimulates repair processes by the body, such as neovascularization, which is the formation of new blood vessels. Neovascularization helps increase blood flow to damaged tissues, deliver essential nutrients for healing, and relieve pain symptoms.
