Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses sound waves. This triggers a healing process in the soft tissues that have been damaged. The waves are generated and delivered to the affected area using a handheld device. Shockwaves help improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation, speeding up the healing process. Scarsdale shockwave therapy can treat various injuries, including heel and sciatic pain. The therapy offers many benefits, including:

1.      Increases collagen production

Collagen is a protein critical in healing damaged connective tissues. It is also responsible for supporting and strengthening the injured tissues as they heal. Shockwave therapy generates waves directed to the injured area’s tissue which triggers collagen production to repair and replace damaged tissues. Improved collagen production helps prevent further damage and facilitate proper healing.

2.      Breaks down calcification

Calcification occurs when calcium deposits build up in the blood vessels, body tissues, or organs. This build-up of calcium can harden and disrupt your body’s natural functions. Calcium is found in every cell and is transported through the bloodstream. Therefore, calcification can occur anywhere in the body. Shockwave therapy helps stimulate the body’s healing process, induces calcium deposit fragmentation within the tendons, and desensitizes nerve endings. This treatment is effective for conditions related to muscle tissues and damaged bones.

3.      Improves sexual health

Erections can look like an involuntary reaction, yet it is a coordinated and complex effort involving your brain, muscles, nerves, and blood. When you experience poor blood flow to your penis, shockwave therapy can solve this problem. Shockwave therapy delivers low-intensity energy waves externally targeting the affected areas. The wave goes through your skin, reaching the blood vessels, which strengthens and helps repair them. This will restore your normal blood flow and remodel the damaged tissues.

After therapy, expect the following:

  • Firmer erections
  • Improved sexual endurance
  • Heightened sensitivity
  • More satisfying sex
  • No more (or fewer) episodes of erectile dysfunction (ED)

4.      Non-Invasive treatment

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and safe procedure. The side effects are temporary and often minimal. This can be a good option if you are considering avoiding medication, surgery, or injection. The common side effects include:

  • Mild discomfort during treatment
  • Mild pain 2-4 hours after initial treatments
  • Mild bruising, swelling, or numbness

Unlike most treatments, there is no downtime following shockwave therapy. Once you arrive at the facility, treatment is administered (takes 15-20 minutes), after which you walk out. This means little to no disruptions.

5.  Can be combined with other treatments

Shockwave therapy is effective and can be combined with other rehabilitative treatments for optimal results depending on your circumstances and injury. Some treatments that can be combined with this therapy include PRP, physical therapy, and even laser technology.

6.      No medication is required

Shockwave therapy involves waves directed to an affected area targeting damaged tissue to encourage its repair. No incisions are made, and there is no need for anesthesia to reduce pain or medication you are required to take after therapy. This procedure helps you fight pain effectively without any extra hurdles.

If you are suffering from persistent pain or want to recover quickly, shockwave therapy could be your answer. Contact Healthy Therapeutics Medical Practice, PLLC, today to learn about shockwave and its benefits.
