SoftWave Therapy is A Breakthrough in Treating Elbow Tendonitis at Back to Health Chiropractic

Published October 29th, 2023 by Softwave Santa Clarita

Elbow tendonitis, often recognized by its characteristic inflammation and irritation of the tendons in the elbow joint, has been a persistent source of pain for many here in beautiful Santa Clarita, CA.

While traditional treatments have offered relief to some, at Back to Health Chiropractic, we're excited to introduce SoftWave Therapy, an innovative solution that promises lasting relief and accelerated healing.

Decoding Elbow Tendonitis

Also known as lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), elbow tendonitis primarily arises from repetitive movements and overuse of forearm muscles and tendons. This repetitive strain can lead to microtears, resulting in inflammation and pain in the tendons connecting to the elbow's bony prominences.

Symptoms often manifest as:

  • Pain and tenderness on the outer (tennis elbow) or inner (golfer's elbow) side of the elbow.
  • A noticeable weakness when gripping objects.
  • Pain exacerbated during activities involving wrist extension or flexion.

Traditional Approaches to Treatment

Historically, the primary treatments for elbow tendonitis have been rest, activity modification, physical therapy, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). While these methods have provided relief to many, they often offer only temporary improvement. Additionally, some individuals are hesitant to rely on medications due to potential side effects.

Introducing SoftWave Therapy

SoftWave Therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), is a cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment tailored for conditions like elbow tendonitis. By deploying electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves, it stimulates the body's inherent healing mechanisms. The benefits are manifold:

  • Pain Alleviation: SoftWave Therapy breaks down pain-causing calcifications, promotes muscle relaxation, and enhances blood flow to the affected region.
  • Inflammation Reduction: By targeting inflammation at its root, the cellular level, SoftWave Therapy reduces the release of inflammatory agents, fostering tissue repair.
  • Tendon Restoration: The therapy accelerates the healing of damaged tendons by promoting collagen production, a crucial protein for tendon strength and structure.
  • Improved Circulation: Enhanced blood flow ensures the delivery of essential nutrients and oxygen via a process called angiogenesis, vital for tissue repair.

The SoftWave Experience at Back to Health Chiropractic

Patients undergoing SoftWave Therapy often describe the sensation as a "pulse" or "wave" over the treatment areas. Conducted in an outpatient setting, the procedure requires no anesthesia, and there's zero downtime. Depending on the severity of the condition, many patients report significant improvement after just a few sessions.

Why SoftWave Therapy is a Game-Changer

  • Non-Invasive: SoftWave Therapy offers a non-surgical, injection-free treatment, making it an appealing alternative to more invasive procedures.
  • Swift Recovery: Unlike surgical interventions, which can entail extended recovery periods, SoftWave Therapy ensures patients can quickly resume their regular activities.
  • Enduring Results: By addressing the root causes of elbow tendonitis, SoftWave Therapy not only alleviates pain but also fosters long-term healing and functional restoration.
  • Personalized Care: At Back to Health Chiropractic, we tailor SoftWave Therapy to each patient's unique needs, ensuring a customized and effective treatment approach.
