Shockwave therapy for hip pain

Hip Pain Treatment in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, CA

The hip joint is the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint, and it allows for fluid motion while walking, sitting, or squatting. The hips are a very durable part of our anatomy, but even they can’t withstand the effects of time and the body’s wear and tear. If you are experiencing hip pain, soreness, or stiffness, you know just how uncomfortable and life disruptive it can be. Fortunately, treatments like LaSara Medical Group’s extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) can help you feel pain-free so you can get back to enjoying your life.

What is
Hip Pain Treatment?

Many different factors can cause hip issues, but the discomfort is usually accompanied by inflammation and pain that is sometimes debilitating. LaSara Medical Group’s shockwave therapy for hip pain offers a non-invasive way to reduce hip pain and inflammation and restore mobility.

Shockwave therapy works by delivering singular pulses of energy to the affected area to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. The pulses of energy create micro-damage that evokes the body’s healing processes, encouraging cell regeneration, promoting blood flow, and improving mobility. The treatment is performed with a handheld device that delivers targeted shockwave therapy to the affected area to provide relief in a comfortable setting.

FAQs About Hip Pain Treatment

Shockwave therapy has been well researched and studied in connection with hip pain treatment. Studies suggest upwards of 91% success rate of short-term pain reduction following treatment, often making surgery unnecessary. Most patients require at least three treatments and report improvement in their symptoms after just one session. However, you can expect full results within 12 weeks of completing treatment.

Shockwave therapy has very few limitations, and patients can expect to go back to their regular activities immediately after treatment. Shockwave therapy is a popular treatment for those patients who do not wish to have a prolonged recovery period after the procedure.

Shockwave therapy helps reduce pain by decreasing the number of chemical messengers responsible for receiving and transmitting pain. Additionally, shockwave therapy helps improve blood flow to the affected area by encouraging new blood vessel production. Shockwave therapy is a well-studied treatment method for hip pain that can provide long-lasting results with no medication and no downtime.
