Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy uses sound waves to improve blood flow, breaking down scar tissue and reduce inflammation, which can speed up the healing process. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment for heel pain and plantar fasciitis. It is also shown to be effective in treating tendonitis.

If chronic pain and seemingly inescapable tension have taken over your life, Dr. Chung Seo at Tri Health Clinic of Aurora, CO, offers shockwave therapy and other techniques to set you free from your suffering.

Quick Guide to Shockwave Therapy

Pain and tension get to us all, but it can sometimes be relieved through stretching and rest. Other times, that is simply not the case, typically because it comes from a problem lying deep within the soft tissues. When this is the case, relief requires a treatment technique like shockwave therapy. Learn below why this is one of many effective methods of relief offered by Dr. Seo and the team at Tri Health Clinic of Aurora, CO.

What Is Shockwave Therapy, and How Does It Work?

You’ve likely noticed that when you get a paper cut, it begins to bleed. Likewise, if you fall or something hits you, you’ll develop a bruise. Both of these are natural processes that heal microtrauma in the body. In short, the body sustains an injury and sends blood and healing nutrients to the area.

While a paper cut and small bruise will usually be healed within a few days, there are often injuries deep below the surface that don’t heal as easily or quickly. Over time, that injury can create tension and scar tissue, which leads to chronic pain and suffering.

Shockwave therapy is a technique that helps break up these deep issues. Sound waves travel to the impacted area and create microtrauma in the tissues. This leads the body to send blood and healing nutrients to the area, just like it does with a paper cut. The treatment area can then begin to heal.

What Is This Technique Used to Treat?

Tension and scar tissue, along with other issues in the deep layers of tissue, can lead to various symptoms and conditions. These include but are not limited to:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee and other joint pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Myofascial pain and trigger points
  • Tendinopathy
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Neck and back pain
  • Limited range of motion and more

Your chiropractor will likely add other techniques to your treatment to ensure optimal healing. As the sound waves get to and break up the root of the issue, you can enjoy lasting relief.
