Not all “Waves” are Equal

At Greystone Regenerative Medicine, we do our due diligence to make sure we are utilizing the very best, most advanced technology. We believe we’ve added another device to our lineup that outperforms anything else – Shockwave Therapy.

Shockwave Therapy stands at the forefront of non-invasive, medical treatments, offering another option and new hope for patients dealing with an array of chronic conditions and acute injuries. Yet, the efficacy of such shockwave therapies is not uniform it hinges on the type of wave generated by the device.

Understanding Acoustic Waves Versus Shockwaves for Medical Use

Acoustic Waves are sound waves that can travel through various media, including air, water, and solids. In medical treatments, they refer to a broad range of sound waves used therapeutically to promote healing. They are generally lower in energy compared to shockwaves and are used for a variety of medical applications, including imaging and physical therapy. Ultrasound therapy has been used in this capacity for a number of years.

Shockwaves, on the other hand, are a type of acoustic wave but are characterized by their high energy and rapid increase in pressure, velocity, and density. They are used specifically in Shockwave Therapy to treat deeper tissues, offering therapeutic benefits for conditions like chronic pain, tendinopathies, and other musculoskeletal disorders. Shockwaves have the unique ability to stimulate the body's natural healing processes, particularly in areas that have a slow healing rate due to poor blood circulation. Despite its name, electric “shocks” are not delivered or felt. An individual is not getting “shocked”.

Dr Shober was a huge help to me with my knee pain. The pain in my knee has significantly decreased, and I feel I am able to live an active lifestyle again. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a nontraditional approach to their joint pain

Wish I would have discovered Greystone Regenerative Medicine sooner. I’m a flight attendant and sitting on the jumpseat all month is brutal. My shoulder and hip are feeling better thanks to the advanced therapies. Once Dr. Shober gets discovered it will be hard to get in!

I am so happy to have found Dr. Nathaniel. I have always struggled with acne and scarring. I have tried creams, peels, micro needling, you name it! The opus plasma treatment has been the only thing that has worked. I have since regained my confidence back after getting treatment and my skin looks refreshed! The space is clean and Dr. Nathaniel and Amber both made me feel comfortable and understood my lifelong frustrations. I will most certainly be back!

How Acoustic Waves Work:

  • Energetic Healing: These waves deliver a rapid series of pulses, strong enough to provide a therapeutic effect deep within the tissue, without being invasive or causing discomfort.
  • Stimulation: Acoustic waves stimulate the cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical methods, acoustic wave therapy is non-surgical and doesn't require downtime, allowing patients to continue their daily routine post-treatment.
  • Versatility: This method can be used to treat a variety of conditions, such as chronic pain, sports injuries, sexual wellness, and even to break down scar tissue.

Types of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy uses high-energy waves to target injured tissues in the body, helping to alleviate pain, stimulate healing, and promote regeneration. It's particularly effective for various musculoskeletal conditions, enhancing blood circulation, and breaking down calcifications. There are two main types of shockwaves used in therapy: Radial Waves and Focused Waves.

Radial Waves:

  • Nature: Think of radial waves like ripples in a pond. They are pressure waves that spread outwards in all directions.
  • Generation: These waves are created using a pneumatic (air pressure) system.
  • Depth of Penetration: Radial waves work closer to the surface of the skin. They're great for treating areas that are not too deep.
  • Applications: Perfect for treating larger surface areas. They're commonly used for muscle tension, trigger points (knots in the muscles), and more superficial orthopedic issues.
  • Precision: These waves cover a broader area but are less precise than focused waves.

Focused Waves:

  • Nature: Focused waves are like a targeted beam of energy, directed to a specific point. They are more concentrated than radial waves.
  • Generation: These waves are generated through various advanced technological methods, allowing for a more targeted approach. They are generated using electromagnetic, electrohydraulic (used at Greystone), or piezoelectric means.
  • Depth of Penetration: Focused waves can reach deeper tissues, making them suitable for more profound issues that are not surface-level.
  • Applications: Ideal for deep tissue injuries and conditions that require a focused treatment approach.
  • Precision: These waves offer high precision, allowing treatment to be concentrated on just the problem area without affecting surrounding tissues.

The Electrohydraulic generated wave allows:

  • Treatment to be delivered with surgical precision
  • Depth of penetration to be reached for optimal therapeutic effect
  • Powerful energy
  • Consistent therapeutic effect
About Us

Conclusion

While shockwave therapy on its own has great therapeutic effects, when combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP), and LASER, the successful, lasting outcome is exponentially superior to the single modality treatments.
