Musculoskeletal conditions that produce acute and chronic pain can have a significant effect on a person’s day-to-day life. RestorePDX is committed to helping individuals suffering from these concerns, and to embracing the latest techniques designed to reduce acute and/or chronic pain without the need for surgical intervention. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, commonly known as ESWT, is one such technique, and we are proud to offer this option right here at our practice.
Dr. Brice Blatz, our experienced Sports Medicine Specialist, will be performing all of our ESWT procedures. He has been extensively trained in this advanced therapy and can meet with patients during an initial consultation to determine whether ESWT is an ideal option. Shock Wave therapy utilizes a special device that is placed directly on the skin of the area in which the pain is being experienced. Controlled energy waves are then delivered into inflamed nerves to disrupt pain pathways and help the area naturally restore and heal itself. The treatment can often be completed in 30 minutes or less, and no downtime is typically necessary following the procedure.
Shock Wave therapy may be an optimal solution for a remarkable array of common conditions, including acute muscle tears and strains, Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, Shoulder Tendonitis, orthopedic injuries, and many others.
