Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) in Dallas
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), sometimes known as Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyAct), uses soundwaves to loosen up stiff muscles, joints, and tendons. At ReGen Medical Dallas, we use state-of-the-art shockwave technology.
What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Our experienced team of professionals applies this treatment to remedy various pain conditions. ESWT and MyACT work by stimulating a natural bodily process known as microcavitation.
Benefits of ESWT include:
- Quick, effective treatments
- Immediate results in most cases
- No surgery
- No medication
- Treats pain at the source
ESWT works by stimulating metabolism and improving blood flow. This helps damaged tissues regenerate. If you would like to learn more about the innovative treatment for pain, contact ReGen Medical Dallas today at (214) 855-7750.
How Can Sound Waves Treat My Pain?
Soundwaves come in varying degrees of intensity. The most powerful soundwave available is 90 pounds per square inch (PSI). When powerful soundwaves push their way into the body they create shockwaves. A shockwave is a type of pressure wave that can shake up and disrupt bones, tissue, and muscle. This is valuable for pain treatment because many pain conditions are caused by taught, knotted spots in the muscles. Shockwaves can break up these hardened areas and improve circulation.
ESWT, in addition to ReGen’s proven combination other technology-based treatments and procedures, accelerates the healing resulting in living a pain-less lifestyle.
Begin living with fewer doctor visits, and start expecting faster results while cutting costs. This is what our ESWT/MyACT based treatments are focused on.
Conditions treated by ESWT include, but are not limited to:
- Back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Trigger finger
- Heel spurs
- Plantar fasciitis
What should I expect?
ESWT/MyACT can break up hardened fibrotic bands (myofascial adhesions) in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It allows the fibers to stretch out, restore blood flow, and clean out waste products that accumulated in the area. With minor discomfort, you should expect to feel the cellular activity start as soon as treatment begins. Once diagnosed and identified, our technology will focus on any spot where you feel discomfort and continue applying shockwaves to that area until the discomfort goes away, where we move on to the next spot. Once this process begins, patients should experience pain relief right away. The entire procedure is safe and non-invasive. While some patients respond more quickly than others, we are confident we can help you begin your journey today.
