I was reminded recently of how little the US population knows about Acoustic Wave Therapy by an article on WebMD that was remedial at best and really off-point when it comes to the benefits of this WONDERFUL NEW modality.

The shock wave, acoustic wave, and compression wave therapy have so many names.  It is a repurposed lithotripsy machine (disintegrates kidney stones) that is utilized to accelerate the healing potential of any tissue in the human body.   It does this through the increased intrinsic production of natural stem cells by 400%, growth hormone by 300%, and neo-angiogenesis (new blood vessels) by 250%.  The ramped-up healing potential shortens the healing time for muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and cartilage.  Imagine being able to heal a fractured leg in 3 weeks instead of 6-8!!!  This is what Acoustic Wave Therapy offers in the way of a new therapeutic endeavor.

Unfortunately, traditional allopathic medicine is going to utilize this new device very sparingly.  Why?  Because they are not in the business of shortening healing time and circumventing surgical interventions.  They are in the business of generating substantial revenue.  A recent MEDSCAPE article on 1/31/2023 is titled “Despite High Spending, US Ranks Last in Health Outcomes: Study”.

Do yourself a favor.  If you have Carpal tunnel syndrome, Achilles Tendonitis, hip or shoulder bursitis, plantar fasciitis, a rotator cuff tear, a hamstring or quadricep strain, knee pain, or an ankle sprain.  Find out the benefits of Acoustic Wave Therapy prior to undergoing any surgical intervention for a musculoskeletal condition.
