A Safer Option For Musculoskeletal Patients
The Need For Non-Invasive Treatment
Our Four Step Process To Lasting Vitality
Regenerative Shockwave Therapy
One of the effective modalities consists of acoustic or pressure wave therapy, also called ESWT. The physics behind this treatment is somewhat complicated.
In the mid-1970s, German and Swiss physicians treated a patient with kidney stones with lithotripsy. This treatment became standard of care and remains the treatment of choice, virtually eliminating the need for surgery.
Similar techniques have been developed for soft tissue, musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions called orthotripsy. This treatment has been used widely and very successfully in Europe. It is also being used in the United States and other parts of the world.
Sports medicine centers such as the Mayoclinic Minneapolis, Stanford California, Harvard and Cleveland clinic use this treatment for musculoskeletal dysfunction and injury.
US Olympic and Paralympic team uses this treatment very effectively as competitive athletes cannot have too much downtime and are often not able to take medication or injections.
Another new treatment that will be offered is called magnetic transduction therapy or EMTT. EMTT® differs from general forms of magnetic field therapy or PEMF due to the high oscillation frequency of 100 – 300 kHz. This property enables a high penetration depth (18 cm).
MAGNETOLITH® opens up new possibilities in regeneration and rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system.
M-VASC Regenerative Therapy
M-VASC is a promising new treatment for the regeneration of the tissues. M-VASC is a microvascular product that can be used for tissue regeneration in a number of ways.
First, it can be used to improve microvascularity, which is essential for tissue healing. Second, it can provide a scaffold for tissue growth and remodeling. Third, it can release growth factors and other molecules that promote tissue regeneration.
M-VASC has been shown to be effective in promoting tissue regeneration in a number of studies so it is now part of our regenerative therapy. We will be utilizing it to treat the following conditions:
- Tendon injuries/tendinitis such as rotator cuff of the shoulder, Achilles tendon, tennis elbow, and others
- Osteoarthritis, such as the knee and hip joints
- Muscle and ligament injuries, unresponsive to conventional treatment
- Neuropathy; such as diabetic or chemotherapy-related neuropathy in the feet
Injection of this material can be safely performed in the tissue with or without ultrasound guidance. It can also be combined with regenerative shockwave therapy if needed.
