One of the most popular treatments available at Modern Therapy is Shockwave Therapy.
This intense, but very short energy wave, travels faster than the speed of sound. In today’s pain therapy, Shockwave energy is conducted from the point of origin through the skin, penetrating deeply if needed, to where the painful tissue lies. When the shock wave hits the dysfunctional tissue, healing is stimulated by the side effects of the tissue transfusing and absorbing the energy of the wave. Extracorporeal shock waves stimulate certain processes and cells within the body, so the body is able to heal itself.
“The idea behind the Shockwave Therapy is it works when you have chronic degenerative soft tissue,” Dr. Ibraheim pointed out. “Many traditional therapies such as anti- inflammatory medications, steroid injections, massage and others can assist the body in the early stages, but something chronic needs something more effective.”
Many of us have experienced pain and looked for relief just about everywhere – and quick treatments such as cortisone shots. While these take away the pain – this is only temporary. That’s why using more ‘modern therapies’ can make an impact over longer periods of time.
The Shockwave Therapy healing method uses modern technology to provide to provide patients with safe and high-quality physiotherapy throughout the body.
The shockwave machine applies strong energy pulses to affected areas for short periods of time, creating micro- cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force penetrates tissue where it stimulates the cells that are responsible for connective tissue and bone healing.
“With this treatment you no longer have to live in pain,” Dr. Ibraheim said. “The shockwave therapy treatment has proven to benefit muscles and tendons for those with tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis and so many other points where pain can occur.”
The machine targets your ailments with multiple settings that are directed at the specific reason you started coming to Modern Therapy. From body smoothing to scar smoothing, treatment of pregnancy stretch-marks and wrinkle smoothing, you can get the results that you were looking for.
The machine also helps with muscular pain, chronic pelvic pain, and relief of pain caused by prostatitis.
“What the Shockwave Therapy does is amazing – and there are so many positives that we use it for,” said Ian Gillman, who has been helping patients feel better for many years. “Have you ever had a heel spur or plantar fasciitis? Shockwave Therapy is designed to help give your quality of life back.”
