Shockwave therapy, OrthoPulse Ultra 100

Shockwave therapy is a very powerful scientific tool consisting of projected sound waves, which can be used to apply physical force to the body in a manner which produces beneficial results. It has been shown to be effective in treating all kinds of bodily ailments. As an example, research has clearly demonstrated that shock therapy can provide significant improvement for patients suffering from joint pain, muscle spasms, carpal tunnel, sciatica, diabetic ulcers, non-healing fractures, and skin repair.

At the Live Aligned chiropractic center in Onalaska, Wisconsin, we offer shockwave therapy as one form of treatment to patients seeking relief from any of the above issues. You probably haven’t heard much about shockwave therapy, so you should continue reading below to learn about some of the terrific benefits it can deliver. Many patients have already experienced major improvements in their conditions after being treated by this method.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy Onalaska, WI

The first thing you’ll appreciate about shockwave therapy is that it can be administered very quickly, in most cases taking up less than 10 minutes of your time. Depending on the condition being treated, somewhere between four and eight sessions are generally necessary to accomplish the desired result, so it’s not a process that goes on and on. In terms of what you feel during treatment, it has been likened to a deep-tissue massage. That means it’s not quite free of all discomfort, but you won’t be feeling any sharp or really uncomfortable pains while treatment is in progress.

It’s also a very affordable type of medical treatment, as opposed to some more elaborate medical procedures. The only drawback in the area of cost is that many insurance carriers have not accepted shockwave therapy as a viable form of treatment, and decline to reimburse patients for the cost of treatment. The lone exception is in the area of treating plantar fasciitis, which most carriers do reimburse for. At some point, insurance companies may reverse course and reimburse patients for shockwave therapy, because the mountain of convincing research simply can’t be disputed.

It’s very hard to understand the reluctance on the part of insurance companies, given the fact that shockwave therapy produces long-lasting results, unlike steroid injections or massage therapy, which are both temporary at best. Perhaps best of all, shockwave therapy works very well with other forms of customized treatment, which means that results can be twice as effective and twice as long-lasting. It is effective as a standalone treatment as well, but when other therapies are indicated, they will work really well in tandem with shockwave therapy.

Review From a Satisfied Customer:

When I first talked to Dr. Scott about my shoulder pain, there was nothing he could do to help me. He said he had heard of a therapy that sounded like it might work for my problem, (over used shoulder) and he would look more into the procedure.  I did not want to have to go through another surgery like I did with my other shoulder because it took over a year and a half to get that shoulder to where it is now.  No, I did not want to go through that again.

He told me about EPAT, (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) and it sounded like the best path for me to take. This non-invasive therapy treatment was a Blessing. It is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulates the metabolism to get the blood circulating and speeds up the healing.  He told me the FDA had cleared the technology that was developed over in Europe, and extensive tests and studies had been done and it was confirmed to be safe and efficacy.  Dr Scott told me it could take up to 4 weeks for pain relief to begin, to eliminate pain and restore mobility, but I was tired of being in constant pain so I said, “Count me in!!”

The first treatment I went in with an agonizing constant pain in my shoulder, the kind that will not let you sleep at night and is just a constant reminder to not do anything cause severe pain would be the result. I didn’t know what to expect. The pulses where strange, tingly but not painful and I walked out of his office that day for the first time with diminished pain in that shoulder. Not gone but, Wow! Oh wow!! A few days later it was like the muscles rebelled and wanted to go back to how they were. A weeks after the first treatment, I was dis-heartened to be back in the same pain. Dr. Scott assured me this was all right and we would get back to that first relieve from treatment one. With each secession of treatments, the pain was going away.

It took 4 treatments and I have been pain free since. My shoulder mobility has improved over 85% and to this day, I have been able to move my shoulder, sleep and carry on with just nominal pain to none. Thank you Dr. Scott for finding this awesome solution for my agonizing pain, so I can live a much fuller active life.
