Shockwave therapy for muscle strain

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

There are many different causes of muscle pain:

exercise, prolonged sitting or laying down, strains, and sprains, to name a few! Unfortunately, muscle pain can adversely affect your ability to do daily activities, exercise, and even perform your job.

No one likes to be in pain, and when it’s something as severe as a muscle tear, or an injury of the muscle or tendons, the pain can be debilitating. LaSara Medical Group offers extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) to effectively treat muscle pain and tears, helping you move through life pain-free and with ease.

What is Shockwave Therapy for Muscle Strain?

Painful sports injuries can range from inconvenient to debilitating, but muscle pain and tears don’t have to mean lengthy recovery. Shockwave therapy offers a noninvasive approach to treating pain and supporting your body’s recovery.

Shockwave therapy works by delivering focused energy waves to injured soft tissues to reduce pain and promote healing. The procedure activates the body’s natural healing process, encourages cell regeneration, and stimulates blood flow to the area. Because shockwave therapy works directly with the body’s natural processes, its results last longer than those of medications. For those who treat muscle pain and tears with shockwave, they can expect their healing time to be significantly reduced.

Are You a Candidate for Muscle Pain and Tear Treatment?

Shockwave therapy is a simple and affordable procedure that provides long-term relief for muscle pain and tear. If you are over 18 years of age and suffer from chronic or acute muscle pain, you are a great candidate for receiving shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy is a generally safe treatment that has very minimal side effects. However, individuals with certain conditions like hemophilia, skin infection of the area needing treatment, and circulation disorders may not be suitable for shockwave therapy and should consult their doctor before treatment.

FAQs About Muscle Pain and Tear Treatment

Most patients report that they experience an improvement in their symptoms after just one treatment. However, LaSara Medical Group recommends receiving 3-6 treatments for the best result. Because shockwave therapy activates your body’s healing process, the beneficial effects of the treatment last well into the future. Therefore, you can expect full results within 12 weeks of completing your last treatment.

Shockwave therapy is a popular alternative to more invasive treatments like surgery. Although shockwave therapy provides effective and long-lasting results, there are very minimal side effects associated with the treatment. You may experience some bruising or reddening and swelling of the skin immediately following the treatment. However, all side effects are minor and should resolve on their own.

Shockwave therapy is broadly and successfully used for pain reduction and works by decreasing the number of chemical messengers that transmit and receive pain. Shockwave therapy treatments often help alleviate pain and negate the need for more severe and invasive treatments such as surgery. The way you respond to treatment largely depends on your body’s healing response. Although we recommend receiving at least three treatments, you can start experiencing beneficial results of shockwave therapy after just one visit.
