Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Chiropractic Care

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Chiropractic care has been known to effectively alleviate musculoskeletal pain and promote overall wellness. With the advances in medical technology, Chiropractic treatments is no longer limited to manual adjustments and spinal manipulations. 

Shockwave Therapy is one of the advanced medical technology which is becoming increasingly popular in complementing Chiropractic treatments. At Live Well Chiropractic, we use the EMS Swiss Dolarclast Master Shockwave Therapy machine, it provides the highest quality radial shockwave therapy and Dolarclast has the research to back it up. Shockwave Therapy involves the use of high-intensity acoustic shockwaves to stimulate our body’s natural healing process and reduce pain. This treatment modality is known for dealing with issues like chronic pain, soft tissue injuries, and joint dysfunctions.

In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Chiropractic care.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Reduced Pain, Inflammation and Swelling

Shockwave therapy has been used to alleviate pain associated with various musculoskeletal conditions, including plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and calcific shoulder tendinopathy. The high-intensity acoustic shockwaves cause tiny vibrations in the tissue, which help to break up the inflammatory cells and promote healing. This can help to manage your pain and improve your quality of life.

Increased Range of Motion

By promoting tissue healing and reducing pain, Shockwave therapy can contribute to improved joint and muscle function, potentially leading to an increased range of motion. This makes it an excellent option if you are suffering from conditions like frozen shoulder or calcific tendinitis who often experience limited joint mobility.

Fast and Effective in Resolving Symptoms

One of the advantages of Shockwave Therapy is that it often requires only a minimal number of sessions to achieve symptom relief. In most cases, patients experience significant relief after just three to five treatments. This efficiency not only saves time, but also ensures a quicker return to a pain-free and active lifestyle.

Non-Invasive Treatment Option

Shockwave Therapy is non-invasive and it doesn't require surgery or injections. This can be particularly appealing to individuals who prefer conservative treatments and want to avoid more invasive procedures.

What are the Possible Side Effects of Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy has virtually no side effects. Some people may find Shockwave treatment to be uncomfortable, but most are able to tolerate it well. The treatment can be adjusted to your individual response or tolerance. Some discomfort or redness may develop after treatment, but this usually subsides within a few days. In addition, there are no restrictions after the treatment session, you may continue with your daily activities.

Are there any Contraindications to Shockwave Therapy?

There are relatively few contraindications to shockwave therapy; however, it should not be performed if you are pregnant, being treated for cancer, have an infection or wound at the treatment site or have had a steroid injection within the previous 6 weeks.

How Long does it take to Recover and see Results?

Typically, optimal results are achieved after approximately three to five treatment sessions, though some individuals may require additional sessions for full recovery. At Live Well Chiropractic, we customise the treatment based on your personal pain tolerance, and we usually conduct each session at one-week intervals, administering 2000 shocks per session.
