Arthritis, osteoporosis, and other rheumatic disorders are increasing becoming an alarming physical, social and economic burden causing moderate to severe disability worldwide. These grave musculoskeletal disorders are often difficult to treat, with limited conservative treatment options available and poor prognosis.
Local cryostimulation and a Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy may be the novel treatment that you have been waiting for. Recent studies have shown that these new technological advancements may provide substantial pain relief, decrease disability and improve quality of life in individuals suffering from musculoskeletal disorders.
Neck pain and mechanical back pain, especially office work-related, are currently considered to be the leading causes of disability and working days lost. In the last decade sport and overuse injuries, especially in younger athletes, have increased more than 5 times. More than 50% of athletes will develop an overuse injury, and more than 30% will require surgical intervention. Treatments of these overuse disorders are complex, ambiguous and problematic and are often resistant to conventional treatments.
Chiropractic care may provide you with significant alleviation of neck and back pain, as well as enhance athletic performance. Shockwave therapy and cryostimulation have shown to markedly enhance sports injury recovery and athletic performance, especially in regards to injuries that fail to respond to the conventional treatment.
