SoftWave Technology – An Alternative Treatment for Pain
Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care.
Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for at least 12 weeks; however, most sufferers of chronic pain are in distress for far longer than that. Chronic pain can be sharp and stinging, or dull and throbbing. Chronic pain can occur in almost any part of your body. It can seemingly come and go, with no apparent reason.
According to the CDC, as much as 40% of the US population suffers some degree of chronic pain.
Chronic pain can severely impact your quality of life. It can impair mobility and restrict daily activities, it can lead to anxiety and depression, and it is one of the leading causes of opioid dependence in the US.
It is that last one in particular –opioid dependence – that has caused sufferers of chronic pain to seek alternative, drug-free treatments. There are several alternative treatments for chronic pain ranging from non-opioid anti-inflammatory drugs to nerve blocks and surgery.
However, few if any other medications have had the pain-relieving or anti-inflammatory powers of addictive and dangerous prescription medications. While effective, surgical procedures for pain are invasive, require lost time at work, and carry various risks.
The truth is, for sufferers of chronic pain, there really has not been a safe and effective alternative to addictive drugs or risky surgical procedures available — until now. Recently a revolutionary treatment for chronic pain has been introduced that uses completely non-invasive soundwaves to treat chronic pain!
It is known as Acousana® Therapy, and it uses painless high-frequency acoustical waves to improve blood flow, stimulate healing, and reduce inflammation in areas of chronic pain.
How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Treat Chronic Pain?
Acousana therapy delivers gentle soundwaves that carry low energy impulses to painful or injured musculoskeletal tissues. The therapeutic energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues.
Acousana uses an FDA cleared acoustical wave therapy (AWT) device that has been clinically proven to increase blood flow and circulation to heal damaged tissue. The mildly pulsating acoustical waves penetrate deep into the tissue to promote blood flow, circulation, reduce inflammation, and eliminate pain in joints, muscles, and other tissues.
Acousana therapy also stimulates the action of your body’s stem cells and other natural healing factors, for long-term relief.
Benefits of Acoustical Wave Therapy
As opposed to other methods to treat acute or chronic pain, AWT is:
Requires little or no downtime
Provides long term relief
Has no risk of addiction, and few if any side effects
Immediately following treatment, patients report a significant reduction in pain, swelling, and inflammation, as well as improved range of motion. That makes Acousana therapy particularly attractive to patients with chronic pain because it provides not only immediate but also long-term relief.
In the first 2 months after treatment, there is an increase in the formation of new blood vessels and improved circulation, which continues to support the healing of soft tissue and bone.
Stimulation of the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response and stem cell migration to the treated area continues for up to 12 weeks post-treatment, providing continued healing and reduction of pain and inflammation.
86% of chronic pain patients say that their pain in the treated areas is entirely eliminated after a complete treatment protocol.
