What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shock wave therapy is a type of chiro care used to help with pain management and healing. Shockwave therapy uses low-intensity sound waves to stimulate the body's natural healing process. The sound waves are applied directly to the affected area. When the sound waves move through the affected tissue, it signals the brain to start a healing response. This healing response involves new cells forming in the area. These new cells will replace the old damaged cells. It is quite literally like giving your body a clean slate.
Who Needs Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is useful in treating many types of conditions. For those looking for pain relief in specific parts of the body, this type of treatment could be a good option. It is especially helpful for those who are dealing with joint pain. This therapy will stimulate the ligaments and muscles surrounding joints so that they can generate healthier tissue. It has also been used in injury recovery as well.
Shockwave therapy is not recommended for people who have significant heart problems. It will be important to discuss your medical history and overall health with the chiropractor before starting this type of therapy.
What Can I Expect When I Visit the Chiropractor?
When you first visit the chiropractor, you will be evaluated for your overall health and wellness. After this, diagnostic tests will be done to determine the exact cause of your pain. The doctor will then develop a personalized chiropractic care plan for you. This plan may incorporate other types of treatment as well as shockwave therapy. Other types of treatment can include spinal adjustment, massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, or others.
