Tissue Therapy

When the pain of an injury slows you down, it can be frustrating and worrisome. Whether it’s muscle, tendon, bone-related, or caused by sports or repetitive motion, the pain of an injury is disruptive and holds you back. If surgery is on the horizon, the worry about recovery can be even worse. Now, there’s Shockwave soft tissue therapy to help you regain your footing, and Balanced Aesthetics Medspa has you covered.

Am I a Good Candidate?

If you’re suffering a sports or soft tissue injury, such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, and more, you may benefit from Shockwave soft tissue therapy. To learn if you’re a good candidate, schedule a consultation with the Balanced Aesthetics Medspa experts. Inform your provider of any prior or current injuries, medical history, and if you are pregnant. Relay what medications you have taken in the past 30-days.

What Results Can I Expect?

Most patients experiencing soft tissue injury and pain require multiple treatments for Shockwave to achieve the full benefit. Most clients average between 3-5 treatments. You may feel significant relief from pain within 6-8 weeks from the beginning of treatment, which peaks at 12 weeks. Be free from mobility issues and the pain that rules your life.

The acoustic energy of a shockwave, when delivered to myoskeletal tissues, can reduce the pain of injury and promote healing. The kinetic energy is created by compressed air and transferred through the Shockwave device’s applicator and into the treatment area.

Here’s how Shockwave works:

  • Increases blood flow through new blood vessel formation.
  • Enhances inflammation to initiate tissue regeneration and healing, then reduces inflammation as healing takes over, halting the inflammatory process before it becomes chronic.
  • Stimulates collagen production. Collagen fibers are the body’s most supportive protein, vital to the strength and integrity of ligaments and tendons. More collagen brings steadier joint support.
  • Dissolves calcified fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are responsible for collagen production, and when trauma occurs to a tendon, these structures can calcify in the micro-tears. Shockwave shatters the calcium buildup so the body can filter it out through the lymphatic system.
  • Delivers pain management by regulating Substance P, a neurotransmitter to mediate pain. Substance P is associated with intense, persistent, and chronic pain, which it relays through the central nervous system. The less Substance P there is to relay pain messages, the less intense the pain becomes. Shockwave reduces the concentration of Substance P, resulting in pain relief.
  • Releases trigger points responsible for pain in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, and legs. Taut bands of muscle fibers become extremely contracted, cutting off their own blood supply. Waste products begin to accumulate, which irritates sensory nerves, resulting in more muscle contraction. It’s a cycle of pain called “metabolic crisis.” Shockwave releases these contractions, relaxing the trigger points so the normal blood supply can carry away waste products.
  • Proven effective treatment for soft tissue injuries
  • Faster and long-term healing and regeneration of tissue and cell growth
  • Fast, non-invasive pain relief
  • Restores mobility
  • Reverses chronic inflammation
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Forms new blood vessels
  • Dissolves calcified fibroblasts
  • Release of trigger points
  • Treatment lasts on average 5-10 minutes for most patients

You may experience some mild discomfort during treatment depending on your already existing pain levels in the area of injury. Shockwave’s intensity can be adjusted based on your response to treatment. Swelling and redness in the 1-2 days after treatment are normal and may exacerbate your pain initially before you feel improvement. Avoid moderate-to-extensive physical activity for the first 48 hours following Shockwave treatment.
