De La Salle University Medical Center – Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is offering a new service, Shockwave Therapy, to the community especially those who are undergoing physical therapy. This therapy is a procedure in which an acoustic wave carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with sub-acute, sub-chronic and chronic issues. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
Patients undergoing shockwave therapy benefit from: elimination of pain, facilitation of healing and improvement of local microcirculation leading to improved tissue metabolism. It also increases the production of collagen, reduces local muscle tension, helps dissolve calcific fibroblasts and stimulates the elimination of Substance P (a pain producing chemical).
Suggested therapy session is every five (5) days or once a week for 3 – 5 minutes per session. Expect an improvement in your injured area as it is relieved from pain, returns to normal and restores functionality.
