What is Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy?
Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy (ECSWT) is an FDA cleared technology proven to increase the rate of healing for soft tissue tendinopathies and wounds. It is an advanced, non-invasive and highly effective treatment method that enhances blood circulation and accelerates the healing process causing damaged tissue to gradually regenerate.
What conditions can be treated with ECSWT?
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Shin Splints
- Foot ulcers and more!
How does ECSWT work?
When you experience chronic pain, your body no longer recognizes that there is an injury to that area. As a result, it shuts down the healing process
and you feel no relief. The ballistic sound waves of the Enpuls penetrate deep through your soft tissue, causing a micro-trauma or new inflammatory
condition to the treated area. Once this occurs, it then triggers your body's natural healing response once again. The energy emitted also causes
the cells in the soft tissue to release certain bio-chemicals that intensify the body's natural healing process. These bio-chemicals allow for the building of an array of new microscopic blood vessels in the soft tissue.
*What do studies show?*
There have been extensive studies done on Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy over the past 20 years. These studies show between a 72% – 80% success rate.
*How is ECSWT performed?*
The system is a machine with an applicator that looks like an ultrasound.
It is administered once a week for a series of 4 to 5 treatments.
Each treatment takes approximately 5 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated.
All treatments are performed by our physician.
The Doctor applies the applicator to the area and administers the ballistic waves by moving over the affected area in a very slow, circular motion.
During the treatment, there may be some minor discomfort. Painful areas are helpful in isolating the truly injured areas.
*Why consider Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy?*
ECSWT has a proven success rate that is equal to or greater than that of traditional treatment methods, including surgery, without the risks,
complications, and lengthy recovery periods. There are no incisions and no risk of infection, or scar tissue, like with surgery.
There is no need for anesthesia to be administered during the treatment, as opposed to high-energy shockwave therapy. Patients treated with ECSWT may be active immediately and resume their normal routine the same day. Many patients find a significant and immediate reduction in their pain. Some
patients will feel results gradually after each treatment.
*What are the possible side effects?*
There have been very few side effects reported. In rare cases, skin bruising may occur. Patients may also feel soreness in the area for a day
or two afterward, similar to a strenuous workout.
*Will I be in pain afterward?*
A day or two after the treatment you may feel a slight discomfort ( similar to bruising ) on or around the treat area.
*Is it covered by my Insurance?*
No. ECSWT is not covered by insurance plans, but ask our office about package pricing.
