What is acoustic wave therapy?

Acoustic wave therapy is a speciality treatment for soft tissue. It is also a very effective treatment for myofascial pain syndrome. This non-invasive office-based procedure approved by the FDA represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Acoustic wave therapy uses low-intensity, pulsed extracorporeal acoustic waves to treat damaged, aged, torn organs. The therapy increases blood flow to treated tissue and encourages the release of growth factors for repair. Collagen is a necessary step for the repair processes in the body and acoustic wave therapy accelerates collagen synthesis. 

This technology produces high-frequency sound waves that initiate the body’s own reparative reaction in case of chronic, degenerative condition and chronic inflammation. It stimulates metabolism and enhances blood flow, which is necessary to start and maintain the repair processes. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. Greater blood flow means improved circulation, tissue strength, and stimulation. You receive acoustic wave therapy at Viva Health Group and can go back to work or daily chores right afterward.

What are the benefits of acoustic wave therapy?

Acoustic wave therapy is an innovative way to treat sexual dysfunction in women and men. The therapy is often preferred because it is non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical. It also features no downtime and long-lasting results. Acoustic wave therapy increases circulation in men’s and women’s intimate areas, treating erectile dysfunction or vaginal atrophy at the source.

Instead of a short-term solution, such as taking a pill or applying a lubricant, where you wake up with the same dysfunctional tissue the next morning, acoustic wave therapy actually helps improve tissue health and restore function naturally and for the long-term.

Acoustic wave therapy can be utilized to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions, including: 

  • Knee, heel, ankle, and foot pain
  • Achilles heel
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hamstring pain
  • Back, shoulder, and neck pain
  • Elbow, wrist, and hand pain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Sports Injuries 
  • TMJ

Acoustic wave therapy can also be used for body shaping and treating cellulite. Some other benefits include:

Reversal of chronic inflammation  

Chronic inflammation is associated with chronic pain. Acoustic wave therapy alone, or combined with PRP or nano-sized vesicles helps restore normal healing and anti-inflammatory processes.

Lowers calcium build-up

Calcium build-up is most often a result of micro-tears or other trauma to a tendon. Acoustic wave therapy starts the biochemical decalcification of the calcium build-up of a toothpaste-like consistency and treats the tendon. The waves break up the existing calcifications.  The granular particles of calcium are then removed by the lymphatic system.

Dispersion of pain mediator “Substance P” 

Substance P is a neurotransmitter that mediates pain information through C-fibers. This neuropeptide is generally associated with intense, persistent, and chronic pain and relays pain messages to the central nervous system. 

Acoustic wave therapy lowers the Substance P concentration and triggers pain relief. Decreasing Substance P, histamines, and other nociceptive metabolites also help inhibit the development of inflammatory edema. 

Release of trigger points

Trigger points are the cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder, and limbs. Trigger points are palpable, focal, hyperirritable nodules located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. This causes \waste products to build up. Waste product build-up irritates the sensory nerve endings, which then causes even more contraction. This vicious cycle is referred to as a “metabolic crisis.” The assumed mechanism of action is that the delivered acoustic energy unblocks the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis in the myofilaments and releases the trigger points.

Who are the best candidates for acoustic wave therapy?

Men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction respond best to acoustic wave therapy. Dr. Bodnar ensures any underlying conditions that could be causing sexual dysfunction have been evaluated and managed prior to using the treatment for erectile dysfunction.

Women going through menopause also benefit from acoustic wave therapy. The procedure can enhance sensitivity, lubrication, and appearance of vaginal tissue. Women who have recently given birth may also benefit from the therapy as it can restore vaginal tissue strength and break up scar tissue from an episiotomy.

Discuss your sexual performance and health concerns with Dr. Bodnar. He can put together a treatment plan that’s best for you.

Is acoustic wave therapy safe?

Acoustic wave therapy has been available for many years and is deemed safe. The treatments result in no adverse side effects. Each session is comfortable and relatively short, lasting just about 30 minutes.
