PiezoWave

PiezoWave therapy in Winston-Salem is one of the newest, and most effective treatment tools available today! Piezo-electric shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive and highly effective solution to dealing with pain and soft tissue injuries. Delivering a series of high-energy percussions to the treatment area, this machine does NOT use electrical shocks, but mechanical pulses traveling through the body to increase healing.

Extracorporeal shock waves have been used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain since the early '90s. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) and trigger point shock wave therapy (TPST) are highly efficient, nonsurgical treatments for chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system. The Piezo Wave offers a significant expansion of the range of applications for myofascial pain syndrome. The extracorporeal, focused shock wave allows precise diagnosis and therapy of active and latent trigger points. Trigger points are thickened, pain-sensitive points within a usually tense muscle. They can cause a variety of pains – even well away from their own location.

Shock waves have been used successfully by orthopaedic specialists for many years in the treatment of disease of the musculoskeletal system. The classical orthopaedic indications for shock wave therapy (ESWT) are diseases of the tendon attachments such as changes in the soft tissue area of the rotator cuff of the shoulder, tennis or golf elbow, patellar tip syndrome of the knee or plantar fascia in heel pain.
