Sound can pulverize a kidney stone, shatter glass, view into the body and even help a bat navigate a dark cave. Now the power of sound has reached new heights with Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) and it is available at V.I.P. Chiropractic Care.
Maybe you’ve used your joints, tendons and ligaments too hard mountain biking in the Hill Country, running a half marathon downtown or just living the Austin tech lifestyle. The result could be an acute or chronic overuse injury.
Shockwave therapy is a safe and effective solution to get rid of the pain and repair the damaged tissue. With shockwave therapy, high energy acoustic (sound) waves are sent into the tissue. Normal tissues will ripple like the waves made in water when you throw a stone into a pond. Scar tissue and calcified fibroblasts are brittle and break in the wake of the pulsations and high energy micro bubbles that are released in the tissue. This allows for angiogenesis, or blood to come back into the area, and tissue regeneration to take place. Massage therapists would need to bruise the skin to even begin to be able to break up the scar tissue.
The PiezoWave 2 is a better, more comfortable option, that goes deep into the cells of tissue, without getting bruised. With Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, joints stay more mobile and lubricated.
