Acoustic Shockwave Therapy
Benefits of AST
Independent studies have proven Acoustic Shockwave Therapy (AST) to be a highly effective treatment for various health conditions related to damaged bone and muscle tissues. The results indicate that up to 91% of patients experience successful healing.
Boosts Collagen Production
Collagen is one of the body’s building blocks needed to heal an injury. AST generates hydro-electric shockwaves that are directed at unhealthy tissue within an injured area. This triggers your body into activating resident stem cells, creating new blood vessels, and regenerating healthy tissue.
Breaks up Calcification
Trauma to the tendons can generate scar tissue in the injured area which can cause chronic pain and a decrease in mobility. Using shockwave pulses, scar tissue is broken into small particles that are easily absorbed by the body. This reduces pain and restores function.
AST is an excellent option for patients who want to avoid surgery, prescription medication, or injections. AST activates your own stem cells without invasive procedures.
