non-invasive treatment in Wilmington NC

Using Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), this non-invasive treatment harnesses electro-hydraulically produced sound waves to stimulate the body's natural healing process. These high-energy waves penetrate deep into damaged tissue, swiftly reducing inflammation and pain while promoting increased mobility. Notably, shockwave therapy triggers a significant increase in blood vessel formation, enhancing circulation, and attracting the body's own stem cells to the treated area, aiding in tissue repair. With no known significant side effects, patients typically undergo 4-10 sessions spaced 5-7 days apart, experiencing no downtime, anesthesia, or activity restrictions post-treatment.


Shockwave Therapy benefits

Chiropractic Wilmington NC Shockwave On Knee

The therapy boasts several benefits, including pain reduction, stem cell recruitment, angiogenesis, and improved wound healing. Success rates are high, with studies reporting healing rates up to 85%, and over 80% of patients experiencing improvement after just one session. Additional "booster" treatments may be necessary for optimal results, especially for severe or chronic conditions, with healing continuing for up to 12 weeks post-treatment. Aftercare involves staying hydrated, complying with treatment recommendations, and avoiding ice, heat, or anti-inflammatory medications immediately after sessions. It's essential to understand that success with shockwave therapy is cumulative and requires patience as healing progresses over multiple sessions, with the added benefit of aiding in peripheral nerve regeneration post-injury.
