With active lifestyles, many injuries or chronic pain can become a part of our daily lives. From knee, ankle & foot pain or injuries to back, neck & shoulder, these unfortunately common pain points can prevent us from doing what we love. If you suffer from one of these issues, then the StemWave™ therapy may be right for you!
StemWave™ is a non-invasive FDA-cleared therapy that delivers Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) high energy sound waves to the area of pain or injury. These sound waves kickstarts the body’s healing process & creates more blood circulation & stem cell activity that helps regenerate damaged tissue. This treatment is great for eliminating pain, restoring muscle mobility & much more.
This treatment is most effective for:
- Knee pain
- Post knee replacement pain
- Heel pain
- Foot pain
- Ankle pain
- Achilles Tendon injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Hamstring pain
- Back and neck pain
- Tennis and golfers’ elbow
- Shoulder pain
- Rotator cuff problems
StemWave therapy is also great for when an injury or pain point is not improving with the typical ice & rest regimen, but the injury is not ready for surgery. There is no downtime with this treatment & improvement can be seen after 3-4 treatments.
There are mild side effects associated with this treatment, but patients may experience swelling, pain, numbness or tingling or mild bruising. Overall, the side effects are mild compared to those associated with surgery.
Don’t let chronic pain keep you from enjoying everyday life. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of the StemWave, call Total Body Therapy of Georgia.
