MCL Injuries: Finding Hope and Healing with SoftWave Therapy

Published November 21st, 2023 by

MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injuries, common in the knee, can significantly disrupt daily routines and active lifestyles. At Back to Health Chiropractic in Santa Clarita, CA, led by Dr. Carolyn Griffin, we understand the challenges posed by such injuries and are proud to offer SoftWave Therapy, an innovative treatment that promises a new path to recovery.

Exploring the Knee's Complex Anatomy

The MCL is a vital ligament running along the inner side of the knee, crucial for stabilizing it. An injury to this ligament can result in pain, swelling, and difficulty in knee movement.

Causes and Symptoms of MCL Injuries

MCL injuries often occur due to direct blows to the knee or sudden, forceful twisting motions. Athletes in sports like football and soccer are particularly susceptible. Symptoms typically include pain on the inner side of the knee, swelling, tenderness, and a feeling of instability.

Conventional Treatment Approaches

Traditional treatments for MCL injuries usually involve rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), along with physical therapy for strength and stability. In more severe cases, bracing or surgery might be necessary.

The SoftWave Therapy Advantage at Back to Health Chiropractic

At Back to Health Chiropractic, SoftWave Therapy represents a groundbreaking approach to healing MCL injuries. 

This treatment uses electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes, offering several benefits:

Improved Blood Flow and Circulation: 

SoftWave Therapy promotes new blood vessel growth, enhancing nutrient and oxygen delivery to the injured area, thus accelerating healing.

Reducing Inflammation:

The therapy effectively reduces inflammation, leading to a significant decrease in pain and swelling.

Enhancing Joint Function and Mobility:

Patients often experience quicker recovery of motion, allowing a return to normal activities.

Activating Stem Cells: 

SoftWave Therapy mobilizes stem cells to the injury site, crucial for tissue repair and regeneration.

This non-invasive therapy not only alleviates symptoms but also promotes long-term healing by addressing the root cause of the injury.
