laser beamAre you struggling with musculoskeletal injuries that have been resistant to traditional therapies? If yes, consider shockwave therapy, a cutting-edge method of care that uses advanced technology to stimulate healing, reduce pain, and restore your overall well-being.

At Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness, we believe in providing our patients with the ultimate in natural wellness through custom care plans tailored to their unique needs. With our unique approach and expertise, the many potential benefits of this new therapy make it a welcome addition to our range of services.

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy involves the use of a specialized device that emits sound waves. The device is equipped with a small hammer-like mechanism, which produces sound waves that can be broad or focused, depending on the specific area receiving care. These are then transmitted to the damaged tissues, stimulating the healing process and various other therapeutic effects.

Potential Benefits

Some benefits patients have seen with this advanced technology include:

  • Enhanced Tissue Permeability—promotes increased nutrient absorption in damaged cells, for faster and more efficient healing.
  • Improved Blood Flow—increasing blood flow to the affected area helps the healing process and reduces recovery time.
  • Scar Tissue Breakdown—sound waves break down scar tissue, allowing greater mobility and improved functionality.
  • Pain Reduction—overrides pain signals, providing relief and allowing patients to regain their quality of life.
  • Hormonal Stimulation—stimulates the release of growth hormones and pain-reducing hormones to speed healing.
  • Activation of Stem Cells—by activating stem cells, we promote the regeneration of damaged tissues.
  • Calcium Absorption—absorbing excess calcium in tendons and ligaments is beneficial for conditions such as arthritis.
  • Neovascularization—it promotes the formation of new blood vessels, enabling efficient healing of damaged areas.

Conditions Helped

Shockwave therapy has shown remarkable effectiveness in helping various conditions, including:

  • Tendinopathies
  • Stress fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic hip and back pain
  • Wound healing
  • Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow
  • Shoulder tendon problems
  • Osteoarthritis in the knees
  • And more

Mechanotransduction: Unleashing the Healing Power

The mechanism behind the numerous benefits of shockwave therapy lies in mechanotransduction. This process involves the conversion of mechanical energy from the device into biochemical signals within the cells. These signals stimulate cellular changes that drive the healing process, resulting in improved overall wellness.

Rest assured that shockwave therapy is a safe and FDA-approved treatment for musculoskeletal issues. It can be used across all age groups without any known contraindications. Whether as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with chiropractic
, our experienced practitioners are here to guide you through your healing journey.

What to Expect

At Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness, we’re committed to providing you with the highest level of care and expertise. When you visit our clinic, you will receive a thorough consultation and exam to determine the root cause of your condition. If shockwave is recommended for your specific case, we will design a custom care plan tailored to your needs. On average, patients undergo approximately six sessions, although this may vary depending on the severity and duration of your condition.

We understand the frustration when traditional therapies fail to provide much-needed relief. That’s why we’re excited to offer this innovative solution for those hard-to-treat conditions.
