What is StemWave?

StemWave is an FDA listed medical device that utilizes harmless, yet powerful acoustic waves to activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. This non-invasive treatment option was designed to help patients dealing with musculoskeletal conditions related to pain and inflammation. This technology falls into several broader categories of technology including shockwave therapy and extracorporeal pulse wave therapy (ESWT). This technology has been utilized in Europe for several decades. And in America today, you can find this technology in many areas of medicine outside of musculoskeletal pain including kidney clinics, veterinary clinics, and clinics specializing in conditions related to reduced blood flow. If you are in search of shockwave therapy in Fort Collins CO – our clinic is the only StemWave provider in the area.

How Does StemWave Work?

A wave of acoustic sound energy is produced inside the applicator head while it is glided over the patient's area of pain. The wave leaves the applicator head and continues into the damaged tissue. The mechanical input delivered by the pulse wave is registered in our tissues, and the body adapts in a biological/chemical way. This is called Mechanotransduction. Simply put, the mechanical stimulation from the pulse waves creates biochemical changes in the target tissue. There are many biochemical changes that occur, but the main ones of interest are up regulation of immune function, as well as recruitment of mesenchymal stem cells through Toll Like Receptor 3 (TLR3) identification of mRNA release from the cell following the administration of true pulse waves.

What are we trying to accomplish?

  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Activate Dormant Stem Cells
  • Increase Blood Flow

What do patients experience during StemWave therapy in Fort Collins CO?

A typical treatment takes 5-10 minutes. During the treatment healthy tissue will respond to the sound wave with no pain. However when the sound wave encounters damaged tissue, a tolerable level of discomfort is produced. Patient' s descriptions of the sensation typically range from a deep ache, a sharpness or a rubber band snapping the skin. There is always constant communication between the patient and Shockwave provider during treatment.

How do we determine who is a good candidate for Shockwave therapy?

If you have a painful condition that is diminishing your function and quality of life – we highly recommend you give StemWave a try. During the initial consultation and treatment day we look for two distinct findings in determining if you are a good candidate for this type of therapy. First – we want to be able to find areas of pain with the sound wave. If we can find the pain and inflammation with the sound wave, it is a good sign that StemWave can improve the condition. If we can't find any pain during the treatment, we will not accept the patient for care. Second – we want to see an improvement in the patient's complaints after the first treatment. Most folks report an immediate improvement in their complaint following the first treatment. This could mean reduced pain severity, decreased numbness, improved range of motion, etc. And we can often see the immediate visible changes in the way their body moves. If we can accomplish these two things on Day 1, we can confidently accept the person for care, set realistic goals and offer a rational treatment plan.
