Acousana Therapy for Pain Management: What You Need to Know
An estimated 20% of adults in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain. Many patients receive pain medication or other treatments to help manage their symptoms, but these come with potential side effects.
Acousana therapy is a non-invasive treatment option for pain management. It uses sound waves to target painful areas of the body. The sound waves work to reduce inflammation and stimulate healing.
If you want to reduce pain without medication or surgery, Acousana therapy might be the right choice. Keep reading to see if this treatment could make a difference in your life.
What is Acousana Therapy?
Acousana therapy is powered by SoftWave®, a patented technology to effectively reach and treat an injured area at a cellular level. Acousana successfully turns on the body’s natural healing process to increase blood supply, modulate inflammation and repair damaged tissue. It is a clinically effective treatment for chronic and acute pain and inflammation.
What Conditions Does Acousana Therapy Treat?
If you suffer from chronic pain, you know that it can seriously impact your life. The constant pain can make it hard to concentrate, sleep, or even eat. Chronic pain can also lead to depression and anxiety. In some cases, people with chronic pain may even become addicted to pain medication.
Acousana therapy can treat a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
Acousana’s Softwave Technology can treat many more conditions not listed here. If you are experiencing pain in your muscles, tendons, joints, or bones, consider Acousana as a possible treatment option.
How Does Acousana Therapy Work?
Acousana therapy locates and addresses the inflammation within your body through the use of sound waves. These sound waves work to reduce pain and stimulate your body’s natural healing resources to produce long-lasting relief.
The sound waves trick your body into responding as if the area has experienced an injury. Your body responds by sending more blood, proteins and other beneficial growth factors to the site. That, in turn, reduces inflammation, swelling, and consequently pain.
Is Acousana Therapy Safe?
Yes, Acousana therapy is safe! There are no known side effects from this treatment. Acousana is powered by Softwave Technology which is FDA-cleared and available here in Orem through our pain specialists at One Wellness.
Is Acousana Therapy Effective?
Acousana focuses on the source of the problem and addresses the inflammation that is the root cause of pain. If the pain is caused by inflammation, then it’s something our therapy can help with.
Does It Hurt?
Acousana distributes a high-energy acoustic wave which penetrates deep into the body to treat the affected area. If there is no active joint or muscle pain, there is rarely any discomfort. When the acoustic waves pass over inflamed tissue, a sensation is felt that is described by most as a deep tissue massage or a “pain that feels so good”.
Benefits of Acousana Therapy
Here are some of the many reasons to consider Acousana therapy:
Acousana therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that doesn’t require surgery or injections. And that means there’s no risk of infection or other complications.
No Medication Required
Acousana is far better than addictive opioids with harmful side effects. With Acousana therapy, there are no pills to take and no dangerous side effects.
It Isn’t Addictive
Unlike pain medication and opioids, Acousana therapy is not addictive. You can receive treatments as often as needed without worrying about addiction.
The number of treatments you need will depend on the severity and chronicity of your pain. Most patients experience a significant reduction in their level of pain after the first treatment and long lasting pain relief following a full treatment protocol. And there’s no downtime, so you can get back to your life quickly.
It Treats the Root Cause
Acousana therapy treats the root cause of your pain, not just the symptoms. It naturally improves blood flow and tissue regeneration. That means the pain relief is long-lasting, and you’re less likely to experience a relapse.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
The treatment process is very simple and similar to an ultrasound.You should arrive wearing comfortable clothes that allow our technician access to the treatment area. Most of our patients are in and out of the office in less than 30 minutes.
