Shockwave therapy has proven to be an important treatment in the medical industry for the treatment of multiple musculoskeletal and soft tissue problems. It is a valuable treatment option for clinicians to offer their patients, and can be an alternative treatment to surgery.
Shockwave therapy has been approved by NICE for many conditions.
Shockwave URTOSIX EMC is a safe and effective treatment option for many patients with musculoskeletal injuries or chronic pain. Using non-focal shockwave therapy high-energy sound waves stimulate healing in the body. Benefitting musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain and soft tissue damage.
Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) and is a noninvasive medical procedure that stimulates the body's natural healing and regeneration processes by using high-energy waves into the bone and soft tissue. These waves are acoustic waves which are produced by a device, and administered to the patient by a hand piece, which then directs the waves to the problem or injured part of the body.
Shockwave Therapy was originally designed and used for the procedure to dissolve kidney stones, and was inspired by lithotripsy. It has evolved greatly and today is used to treat a variety of problems, including soft tissue injuries, tendinopathies, and musculoskeletal issues. It has been shown in many clinical studies to be a successful treatment option in relieving pain and increasing functionality and quality of life.
Shockwave therapy is an effective and advanced treatment procedure that, through the function of the device, stimulates the body's healing and metabolic processes, giving pain relief and improving function.
The high-energy acoustic shock waves pass through the skin breaking up soft tissues, calcifications, enhance collagen synthesis, release growth factors and provide pain relief. The waves damage the tissue, by generating microscopic tears that trigger the body's healing process. In addition to this, shockwaves enhance blood flow to the injured area, increasing the level of delivery of nutrients and oxygen that are required for healing.
At the initial level, shockwaves enhance the release of growth factors and cytokines, which are vital for tissue regeneration. This technique has been clinically proven to speed up the healing of damaged tissues.
By preventing or disrupting the transmission of pain signals and activating the body's natural painkillers, known as endorphins, shockwave treatment is a very useful tool for clinicians to treat people with pain.
Shockwave therapy is effective for treating a variety of stubborn musculoskeletal conditions , including chronic musculoskeletal pain, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis. It works by encouraging the body's natural healing processes to provide long-lasting pain relief. It is said to be one of the most effective pain killers to ever exist in the history of medicines. Patients with musculoskeletal issues have shown improved tendon function and joint mobility after receiving shockwave therapy. Increased mobility results from the reduction of scar tissue and the promotion of tissue regeneration which makes it highly adaptable for the patients as well as the healthcare sector.
For athletes and active people, shockwave therapy has the potential to revolutionise their lives. People with sprains, strains, and tendinopathies recover faster, which enables them to return to their preferred sports sooner. Compared to many alternative treatments, shockwave therapy has fewer side effects. Minor discomfort, such as bruising or pain, is typical but normally goes away quickly. It does not have any long-term side effects like other oral painkillers. Side effects are usually minor, making shockwave a safe treatment. For many conditions, shockwave therapy provides a non-invasive alternative to surgery. It is a safe and non-invasive option prior to more invasive treatment options. Many studies have shown that most patients get relief from this treatment which often eliminates the need of surgery.
Shockwave therapy works in many ways that come with numerous benefits. The non-invasive nature of shockwave therapy is a key advantage. It does away with the necessity for incisions, a frequent surgical procedure element that can result in infection and delay the healing process. In many instances, patients can resume their activities as soon as their treatment is completed. Shockwave therapy is widely tolerated.
