Do you suffer from back pain? If so you are not alone!
Back pain is one of the most common medical problems in America, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain.
Back pain can be acute or chronic. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually does not last much longer than few days or weeks. Back pain is considered chronic if it lasts for more than three months.
Minor back pain often goes away on its own, or simply with the help of rest and over-the-counter pain medications. Severe and chronic back pain is a much more serious condition that can be very debilitating and significantly impact your quality of life.
The most common form of back pain in adults is lower back pain. Causes of lower back pain include:
- Muscle pulls and spasms
- Nerve irritation
- Spinal abnormalities, such as a slipped disc or spinal stenosis
Back Pain Treatment Options
Traditional treatment options for lower back pain range from simple bed rest and physical therapy, to the use of prescription medications and more serious invasive and risky procedures such as traction and surgeries.
However, a revolutionary alternative treatment for back pain has recently been introduced that uses completely non-invasive soundwaves to treat the pain and inflammation of most causes of lower back pain.
It is known as Acousana™, and it uses painless high-frequency acoustical waves to improve blood flow, stimulate healing, and reduce inflammation in the back and spinal region.
How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Treat Back Pain?
Acousana™ therapy delivers gentle soundwaves which carry low energy impulses to painful or injured musculoskeletal tissues. The therapeutic energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons, and other soft tissues.
Acousana uses an FDA cleared acoustical wave therapy (AWT) device that has been clinically proven to increase blood flow and circulation to heal damaged tissue.
Benefits of Acousana Therapy
In as little as a single 30 minute treatment, Acousana™ therapy can restore mobility, increase blood flow, and reduce pain as much as 90%. Acousana’s patented acoustic SoftWave™ technology has been proven to reduce inflammation — the root cause of most back pain.
Acousana therapy is safe, non-invasive and has little to no-known side effects. If you or someone you know are among the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic back pain Acousana therapy can help! The best part is, this treatment doesn’t require drugs, injections or surgery of any kind, so you can get back to enjoying all the things you love in life as quickly as possible.
As opposed to other methods to treat back pain, AWT is:
- Pain free
- Drug free
- Requires little or no down time
- Enhances range of motion
- Provides long term relief
- Has no risk of addiction, and few if any side effects
Immediately following treatment, patients report a significant reduction in pain, swelling and inflammation, as well as improved range of motion of the back or other affected area. Because acoustic wave therapy stimulates your body’s own natural healing response, its benefits to back pain sufferers last long beyond the initial treatment.
85% of chronic pain patients say that their pain in the treated areas is entirely eliminated after a complete treatment protocol.
