Chiropractor in Manhattan Beach CA Now Offers Shockwave Therapy, an Effective State-of-the-Art Medical Technology for Fast Pain Relief

FXNL Form Sports Med and Chiropractic in Manhattan Beach, CA, is happy to announce that they are now offering a state-of-the-art medical technology that uses extracorporeal shockwaves to treat acute and chronic pain syndromes. This is a unique method because other compression devices that are used for treating musculoskeletal conditions don’t use sound waves to provide the compression. Instead, they use percussive application to the outer layer of soft tissue, hoping that the resulting pressure will go through the tissue to the location of the injury.

With focused compression therapy (FCT), also known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), an array of sound waves are easily sent through the soft tissue to the desired, controlled depth and it is at this point that the sound waves meet at a focal point to create the desired compression at a precise depth. The result is a more controlled and effective delivery of the compression energy and with better patient compliance to the therapy. FCT is commonly used for treating chronic and acute pain in joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons. Focused acoustic pressure waves are produced and sent to the target area in order to compress, manipulate and massage the tissue at various depths, providing an accurately targeted deep tissue restructuring. The mechanical stimulus that is delivered by FCT can result into increased range of motion and pain relief, and increased circulation which are key components in the healing process. FCT is currently the fastest growing rehab modality used by elite athletes in various professional sports.
