Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive medical procedure that treats wounded body parts by using acoustic waves. Its goal is to lessen suffering and encourage recovery.
Similar to how kidney stones are broken down, ESWT uses shockwaves. But because it is just 10% as potent, it is actually quite safe for the body. Shockwave therapy in Edmonton is used to treat a number of injuries and has a wide range of applications.
The treatment encourages hyperaemia, or an increase in blood flow to a particular area of the body. Energy is produced, muscles are made more flexible, and myosin and actin path contacts are reduced thanks to an increase in blood circulation. This will lessen discomfort and muscle stress.
The primary protein present in connective tissues throughout the body is collagen. It aids elastin in giving the skin elasticity and shape. Additionally, it is necessary for any ligament repair procedure.
Acidic histamine is reduced and the body's metabolism is sped up via shockwave therapy. The procedure will instantaneously relieve pain by stimulating the nerves that transmit pain signals to the brain. Additionally, it will hasten the body's recuperation process and hasten the development of blood vessels in the injured areas.
It can be applied to soft tissue injury treatment. It does not require hospitalization and is non-invasive. Although occasionally uncomfortable, shockwave therapy is usually manageable.
