Are you living with chronic pain and tension? Dr. Paul Hyland at Committed to Health Chiropractic Center in Creve Coeur, MO offers shockwave therapy and many other natural methods to help you find relief.
Battling Chronic Pain and Tension
When you suffer from chronic pain and tension, relief can seem like it’s a million miles away. Sometimes the options you try to get that relief just don’t seem to do the trick. They might work to some degree or make the suffering slightly more tolerable, but true relief can seem impossible.
The reason for this is that some pain and tension don’t stem from areas close to the surface. Instead, they are in the deeper tissues, which are much more difficult to reach. While chiropractic care does involve several potential methods of relief, one incredibly effective way to reach deeper tissues is with shockwave therapy.
What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a natural healing method that sends short yet intense waves of energy to a targeted area. These waves are able to go deeper into the tissues than a person’s hands can go to break up scar tissue and soothe deep tension.
Additionally, it causes something called microtrauma. This isn’t something that should scare you. It’s simply a small impact sustained by the body – and it’s really common. In fact, you face microtraumas every day. Paper cuts, small bruises when you accidentally walk into the corner of a desk or door, and similar events cause slight trauma to the body.
Such trauma doesn’t typically produce long-term issues. It does, however, cause the body to respond. Blood flows to the impacted area for a completely natural healing process to occur.
The same thing happens with shockwave therapy. When the waves hit the targeted tissue, blood and healing nutrients flow to that area. This causes the body to start healing itself, which helps to address pain, tension, and scar tissue. It’s utilized for many different conditions and injuries, including but not limited to:
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Myofascial pain
- Runner’s knee
It’s also been used in other fields and applications, such as treating cellulite. This amazing technique can be very beneficial for everything from injuries to overall wellness. Dr. Hyland and the team at Committed to Health Chiropractic Center in Creve Coeur, MO often combine shockwave therapy with various other treatments to produce the greatest results.
