Effectiveness and safety of shockwave therapy for your Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) could be due to dysfunctional connective tissues or the aging factor. But the risk of developing is common, and shockwave therapy treatment is a one-stop treatment for them. 

MSDs can take various forms—from short-lived conditions, such as fractures, sprains, and strains; to lifelong conditions related to pain and disability. 

Among all kinds of disorders, MSDs such as back pain are common.

What are the various conditions for MSDs?

The other musculoskeletal conditions are osteoarthritis, neck pain, fractures, and systemic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

What are the causes of musculoskeletal disorders?

Various risk factors culminate to conceive the disorder. Here are what they are: 

  • High Task Repetition
  • Forceful Exertions
  • Repetitive/Sustained Awkward Postures

Due to the influence of these MSD risk factors, patients start to feel fatigued. Consistent fatigue leads to the development of a musculoskeletal imbalance, which hampers the body’s recovery system. Over time, the musculoskeletal imbalance turns out to be a disorder.

How shockwave therapy helps in treating MSDs?

Shockwave treatment is a rehab program that is a cross branch used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology, and vet medicine.

The rehab program is a non-surgical shockwave treatment therapy. The benefit of shock wave therapy is that you don’t have to take pain killers or withstand chronic pain for a speedy recovery. 

Often considered as sports medicine, shockwave therapy is perfect for athletes who have to undergo occasional injury. 

How effective is the shock wave therapy for you?

Some  benefits of shockwave therapy, which operates in the background:

Fresh Blood Vessel Formation

Any repair begins with adequate nutrient flow to a particular spot. The shockwave therapy cracks the capillaries in tendons and bones. The cracks lead form the micro ruptures. The ruptures create a passage for the growth factors such as eNOS, VEGF, PCNS, and BMP to get inside.

Turn Around of Chronic Inflammation

When unchecked, usually, chronic inflammation enlarges. Mast cells, the repair cells, first enhance the inflammatory process, and then, help restore the balance with healing.

Raise of Collagen Creation

Besides, the other benefits of shockwave therapy are natural procollagen synthesis. The shockwave treatment creates fresh collagen fibers to make a firm longitudinal structure.

Termination of Calcified spots

Usually, chronic inflammation is a result of calcification in a particular area. During the rehabilitation program, when you will be undergoing through the shock wave therapy, the blasts of the compressed high-energy beam destroys the calcium build-up.  Later, your lymphatic will not shy removing the granular particles of calcium.

Dissolution of Pain propagator
“Substance P”

Substance P is the pain mediator in your body through C-fibers to the central nervous system.

One of the benefits of shockwave therapy that you can even feel is painless shockwave therapy. During the shockwave therapy treatment, the substance P decreases. Beside, inhibiting the development of inflammation, the pain factor lowers as well.

Release of Trigger Points

Generally, the trigger points are in the back, neck, shoulder, and limbs.

As you, get in touch with the MSDs factors, which are more frequent in the case of athletes, or people who are either highly mobile or completely sedentary, the metabolic crisis occurs.

The joint sections are associated with rigid muscle fibers that have stubborn sarcomeres or muscular stripes. When sprained or become dysfunctional, they cut off their own blood supply, which leads to the build-up of wastes in the nerve endings. In the rehabilitation program, acting as sports medicine, the acoustic energy unblocks the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis.


As sounds that complicated internal science, the Shockwave treatment is a non-invasive treatment, which is simple and easy for you. 

Our experts will initiate the therapy in 3 steps of locating the area, apply the gel, and initiate the rehabilitation program.

Thanks to the gel we use, your shockwave treatment will be pain-free. If you are ready for a painless and comfortable life, get in touch with us for a discussion.
