A critical part of any regeneration is adequate blood flow; without it the tissue is unable to repair itself. The Shockwave Therapy performed at Eterna M.D. uses acoustic waves to cause micro-ruptures of the capillaries in your tendons and bones. These ruptures express certain growth factors such as BMP, PCNS, VEGF, and eNOS.
These specific growth factors trigger increased blood supply and oxygenation, which allows the body to heal its damaged tissues.
We like to use Shockwave Therapy on patients who suffer from lower back pain, joint pain, and erectile dysfunction. We also like to use it on patients who like to speed up the recovery time after their Liposculpture.
