Cutting Edge Tissue Regeneration Therapy At Revive
Our practice specializes in providing modern and non-invasive treatment options for orthopedic pain. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is determined to be safe and efficient treatment procedure in orthopedics and sports medicine. In fact, Olympic and University team physicians are some of those who have added ESWT to their services. Our company is excited to extend our patients the exact same innovative technology. The newest version ESWT machine utilizes softwave therapy to encourage your body to be self-regenerative. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of ESWT, please ask any member of our team.
The definition of ¨shockwaves¨ means sound waves with a very unique wave form.(shown below and compared with radial pressure and ultrasound wave forms)
Different radial pressure wave therapies, softwaveTM therapy invades deep into the skin, to the site of injury. The biological signaling effect of pressures is higher than both the radial pressure waves and ultrasound, making it clinically more effective. The instant change in pressure created by the shockwaves, prompts the cell to activate as it would to trauma. Meaning, the shockwaves prompts a biological healing feedback. Studies have shown the release of growth elements, anti inflammatory agents and a better blood supply in response to ESWT.
Cellulite Treatment • Shoulder Injuries (e.g. rotator cuff) • Golfer’s and Tennis elbow (epicondylitis) • Chronic heel pain (plantar fasciitis) • Jumper’s knee (patellar tip syndrome) • Tendon and ligament injuries • Muscle pain • Erectile Dysfunction • Peyronie´s Disease
The procedure is about 5-10 minutes in length. It is similar to an ultrasound procedure, the area needing treatment will be surrounded with gel to verify good shockwave transmission. Following connecting the therapy head to the body, the therapist will send a diagnosis exact amount of pulses. The energy will be applied at a comfort level specifically for you. Over 80% of patients reveal improvement after one treatment. Pertaining to your personal conditions, you will most likely be arranged for 3-5 sessions. The outcome at the end depends on many different elements, but studies reveal a healing percentage of 65-85%
