What is Shockwave Bone Healing Therapy?

Under normal circumstances, your body may take up to 3 months to heal a bone fracture. The healing function is a complex, tightly coordinated process that reconnects the fracture, so you once more have a healthy, unified, and strong bone.

Several aspects, including age, medications, lifestyle choices, and comorbidities, can result in delayed or interrupted bone healing. For example, research shows that individuals who are smokers, have diabetes, a poor diet, and insufficient blood flow to the injured area may experience stalled bone healing and may require intervention. Surgical and non-surgical techniques are available for delayed and nonunion bone fractures, with revision surgery being the most frequent approach.

At LaSara Medical, we believe in offering minimally invasive yet effective treatments that can support your body's natural healing process and allow for bone healing. Shockwave bone healing therapy treatments at LaSara Medical Group utilize focused shockwaves to stimulate blood flow, promote cell regeneration, and encourage healing.
