If you suffer from chronic soft tissue muscle pain or are experiencing a bout of acute soft tissue pain, you know how debilitating it can be and how dramatically it can affect your quality of life. The great news is that you can now get relief from your pain without medication or invasive treatments at EsthetixMD in Bend, OR with ZWave shockwave therapy!
What is ZWave shockwave therapy?
While the phrase “shockwaves” may sound intimidating, it simply means that the ZWave system generates a mechanical pressure wave in the target tissues. This wave then radiates through your tendons or muscles, which absorb the energy. This places a mild stress on your tissues to stimulate a variety of natural healing and recovery mechanisms, reducing pain due to issues such as:
- Strains and sprains
- Muscle pain
- Foot pain
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Soreness from sports and physical activity
Many medical studies have been conducted on this type of treatment to help clinicians understand why it is so effective. These studies have shown that the mechanical energy:
- Regulates muscle tone by stimulating the muscular spindle and tendon
- Helps stimulate cellular activity
- Changes the permeability of the cell membrane
- Enhances the cell building process to improve the cell’s mechanical structure
- Stimulates the release of endorphins, which help to dull pain
In short, by absorbing the mechanical energy of the shockwaves produced by the ZWave system, your body’s aching tissues are triggered to reduce pain, increase mobility, and expedite healing and recovery. With reduced muscle spasms, improved blood flow in the treatment area, and strengthened connective tissue, after ZWave therapy, you will feel like a new you!
What to expect
One of the best parts about ZWave therapy is how quick and effective it is — it only takes about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the treatment area. The ZWave treatment may be slightly uncomfortable at first, but many patients rapidly acclimate to it and it becomes completely painless. We will work with you to determine the right number of treatments for your specific needs and level of pain.
