Chronic Pain and Pain Relief Using Shock Wave Therapy

Medical science is discovering new ways through innovations that replace the painful methods of treatment with pain freeways, and it is pleasing to say that they are succeeded. Chorionic pain is a prevalent issue of every second person you will meet. To come over with chronic pain and to get relief from it the best method to choose, that is pain-free as well as “shock wave therapy.”

Shock wave therapy is the most common method in physiotherapy. It is a non-invasive method, in which waves are transferred through the skin into the affected area using a gel as a medium by using shockwave therapy machine. The good thing is that one does not need injections or painkillers with it. Shock wave therapy helps the body to recover through its natural healing process.

Shock wave therapy is an easy procedure usually done in three steps. First is the identification of area with pain, second is to apply the gel on that part, and last is to use shockwave therapy machine and put pressure on the area to be treated.

How does the shock wave therapy help to relieve the pain?

It stimulates the production of collagen

Production of a proper amount of collagen is necessary for the repair process of the damaged ligamentous and myoskeletal structure. Shock wave therapy helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the body with the help of acoustic waves.

Help the blood vessels to form

Sometimes the blood flow is vessels becomes slow, which create hindrance in repairing the issue and relief the pain. Here shock wave therapy works to maintain the blood flow in capillaries and to repair the damaged tissues.

Release of trigger points

The real problem with the pain in the back, neck, limbs, and shoulders is the compression of trigger points in the body. You can call them a principal cause of the pain. Through shock wave therapy, acoustic waves are entered in the body and helps to release the trigger points, which ultimately minimizes the pain.

It means there are no harm or side effects of shock wave therapy.  Chronic pains never let a person perform his duties well, and you cannot take off for long until you are relief from pains. Shock wave therapy is effective and fast in relieving pain.

A group of 150 patients, in one study, were asked to rate their pain level on a scale of 1 to 10. The average pain level before treatment was 7.7.

After receiving shock wave therapy from a shock wave therapy machine, the patients were asked one year later to rate their pain level again on a scale of 1 to 10. The patients who reported had an average pain score post-shock wave therapy of 0.6. This is a 92% reduction in pain and a much higher rate of success than any non-surgical or surgical procedure. More importantly, shock wave therapy is very safe.

Thousand plus people reported positive results and improvement in their pain due to shock wave therapy. At the start, one may feel swelling or soreness, but it will vanish with the time. There is no need to start using anti-inflammatory tablets if they feel some swelling.  The pain usually doesn’t last beyond 24 hours and during that time you should avoid vigorous activity.
