As 2016 is coming to a close and the 2017 New Year goals are being set, more and more of us will pursue active lifestyles in the interest of overall health or shedding a few extra pounds gained from the holiday season. Unfortunately, active lifestyles can lead to a variety of both major and minor injuries that can derail us from achieving our goals.
The latest piezo acoustic sound wave generation offers a unique treatment option for myofascial and muscloskeletal pain. The PiezoWave2, developed by Richard Wolf, combines orthopedic applications of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) with the applications of Trigger Point Shock Wave Therapy (TPST), which are highly efficient, non-surgical treatments for chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system.
The PiezioWave2 delivers pinpoint mechanical stimulus that results in a cascade of biochemical events that lead to increased circulation and pain relief. In all situations, it is considered the non-invasive alternative to surgery.
The PiezoWave2 has been used to successfully relieve pain from the following conditions:
• Tennis/Golfer’s elbow
• Foot and heel pain
• Shoulder pain
• Hip, knee and other leg discomforts
• Pain related to repetitive stress activities
• Adhesions and other soft tissue strains
• Trigger point therapy
• Chronic pain in transitional regions between tendons and muscles
• Pain in the neck, shoulders, back and buttocks region
