Do you live with chronic muscle pain or a lingering injury that has resisted traditional treatments? If so, Softwave regenerative therapy from MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, FL my be the answer you have been looking for. Keep reading to learn more about this revolutionary new technology and how it can work to improve your quality of life.
What Is Softwave Therapy?
This relatively new technology uses unfocused extracorporeal shock wave (uESWT) to encourage tissue regeneration. It does this by promoting physical and biological responses, which facilitates wound healing and recovery.
Softwave is FDA-approved to treat burns, diabetic foot ulcers and several other common types of injuries to connective tissue. It is also widely used to increase the number of blood vessels (and therefor, circulation) within injured tissue, to improve the appearance of scars, and reduce pain.
How It Works
Acoustic sound waves are directed at a general area of your body. This reduces pain and inflammation in the treatment area relatively quickly. Many people experience an improved range of motion shortly after treatment. However, at this point, the healing process is really just beginning.
The waves applied result in the shearing of cell membranes, which activates natural healing processes within the body. As a result, blood vessels begin to regenerate in the treatment area over the next several weeks. This increases circulation and oxygen delivery to the tissue. The body also recruits stem cells to improve regenerative processes.
What Does It Treat?
There is a wide range of conditions that can be treated using uESWT. A few of the applications where it has been successfully used include:
- Frozen shoulder
- Scar removal
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Chronic soft tissue pain
- Muscle strains and sprains
Keep in mind that while pain and swelling may be relieved right away, most results take time. It often takes up to 12 weeks for you to see the full benefits of acoustic therapy treatment.
Who Should Consider Treatment?
Ultimately, whether or not Softwave is right for you is a personal decision. It should only be made after an in-depth consultation with your provider. However, there are some signs it might be a good option to consider. For example, it is an excellent choice for injuries that have resisted other healing modalities.
In general, if you can relate to any of these statements, then it may be time to learn more about the treatment:
- You have chronic pain in soft tissue
- You have a major wound that has resisted healing on its own
- You want to lessen the appearance of scars
- You are looking for a natural, regenerative approach to healing
- You want to avoid invasive surgical procedures
People with certain health conditions or who are taking certain medications may not be good candidates for uESWT. Talk to your provider to determine if this is a good choice for your treatment plan.
