How Does Shockwave Therapy Work? Carlsbad

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Now that we know what Shockwave Therapy can treat, what exactly is it? Shockwave Therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), is a modern and highly effective treatment approach used in physical therapy, orthopedics, and sports medicine.

It involves the delivery of short, intense sound waves directly into the tissues that are injured, scarred, or painful. This therapy is renowned for its ability to significantly accelerate the recovery process and alleviate pain without the need for surgery or medication.

How Does It Work?

The therapy uses a device that generates shockwaves, which are focused acoustic waves that carry high energy to painful spots and musculoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic, and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues.

Shockwaves are characterized by a rapid increase in pressure, high amplitude, and non-periodicity. The energy created by these waves is delivered to the tissue, which stimulates a cascade of biological reactions including:

  • Neovascularization: The formation of new blood vessels helps to improve blood supply and oxygenation of the treated area, leading to faster healing.
  • Reversal of Chronic Inflammation: The waves induce mast cell activity and increase the release of growth and inflammatory inhibitory factors.
  • Stimulation of Collagen Production: Necessary for the repair of damaged musculoskeletal and ligament structures.
  • Dissolution of Calcified Fibroblasts: The waves break down calcium build-up, which is often found in chronic injuries.
