Acoustic wave therapy is a natural, non-invasive treatment that administers pulses of sound waves using a specialized handheld device. This unique therapy is used to target peripheral neuropathy and other painful conditions.
These sound waves are able to travel through the skin, directly to the site of the injured or painful tissue. This promotes healing and provides pain relief. The benefits of acoustic wave therapy are available to patients who are looking for pain relief. As well as natural healing without having to undergo risky surgery or use prescription drugs to mask the pain.This treatment can also be used in treating certain conditions, including improving the appearance of stretch marks and reducing the appearance of cellulite, relieving joint pain, scar tissue, neck pain, and more. The small sound waves go into the injured tissue to promote an increase in the production of collagen, help improve blood flow and restore connective tissue.
Acoustic wave therapy is sometimes called medical wave therapy or shockwave therapy. All these terms refer to this same treatment.
Acoustic Wave Therapy for Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is often caused by nerve damage, where cells and tissue are unhealthy or damaged. Since the brain uses the nerves as communication channels to send its “orders” through to the cells of the body, those messages are unable to travel through the nerves as they should be doing. Many patients with peripheral neuropathy struggle from tingling or other painful symptoms in their extremities.
By increasing blood flow to the affected nerves, healing is encouraged. Patients may once again experience healthy, renewed nerve channels and be able to lead a more normal, pain-free life.
