Physical therapy is a key component of many patients’ recovery processes, and new technology is always being developed to make it even more effective.
Granite State Physical Therapy is proud to share that we will be working with Focused Shock Wave Therapy using Chattanooga devices.
The FDA-approved focused shock wave device is one such piece of equipment that is currently being employed by some physical therapy clinics to help their patients recover from pain and injuries.
Focused shock wave treatment, a non-invasive procedure, uses high-energy sound waves to support the body’s natural healing processes. The waves, which are focused on specific body areas like muscles or tendons, help to increase blood flow, lessen inflammation, and promote tissue regeneration. This treatment is currently gaining popularity in the United States despite having been successfully used for many years in Europe.
Chattanooga says on its website:
“The FDA Approved Focused Shock Wave is the next generation of ESWT Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment with patented focused “Cylindrical Source“ Technology available from Chattanooga. This unique device leads the industry in innovation and performance for the treatment of pain associated with chronic proximal plantar fasciitis.”
The many benefits of using the device to treat common issues such as:
- Foot and ankle issues
- Lower extremity injury
- Upper extremity injury
- Back and chest pain
- Shoulder Neck injury
- Myofascial trigger points
The most recent FDA-approved concentrated shock wave technology is designed to be even more effective than earlier versions. It employs a focused sound wave beam to target certain body areas, reducing the risk of damaging neighboring tissues. The new equipment’s improved energy efficiency allows for quicker and less painful therapy for patients. It’s an experience all its own, and we believe our patients will enjoy the results it brings.
By implementing this cutting-edge technology, physical therapy clinics are discovering that their patients recover more quickly and with fewer problems. Patients receiving focused shock wave therapy report significant pain reduction and improved range of motion. Among the problems that can be addressed with this healing technique are rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and more.
One of the key benefits of this treatment is that it is non-invasive and doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. Patients who receive focused shock wave therapy often recover from their therapies more quickly than people who receive more invasive procedures. For many people, this therapy is a safe and sensible option because its side effects are so rare.
