Can SoftWave Therapy help a MCL Injury? Embrace Healing!

Published November 19th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Few things can disrupt our daily routines and active lives like an injury, and one of the most common in the knee is an MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injury. Whether it's from sports, a fall, or an accident, an MCL injury can be painful and debilitating. But here's the good news: SoftWave Therapy, led by the pioneering Dr. Sam Camarata at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness in North Chili, NY, offers an innovative path to recovery.

Understanding the Knee Anatomy

Before we dive into how SoftWave Therapy can help with MCL injuries, let's briefly explore the knee's complex anatomy. The MCL is a crucial ligament that runs along the inner side of your knee and plays a significant role in stabilizing it. When this ligament gets injured, it can lead to pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the knee.

Causes and Symptoms

MCL injuries are typically caused by direct blows to the knee or sudden, forceful twisting motions. Athletes, especially those involved in sports like football and soccer, are at a higher risk. Common symptoms include pain on the inner side of the knee, swelling, tenderness, and a feeling of instability.

Conventional Treatments

Traditional treatments for MCL injuries often include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Additionally, doctors may recommend physical therapy to regain strength and stability in the knee. In some cases, bracing and even surgery may be necessary, depending on the severity of the injury.

The SoftWave Advantage at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness

SoftWave Therapy, offered by Dr. Sam Camarata, represents a groundbreaking approach to healing MCL injuries. This innovative treatment uses electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes.

Improved Blood Flow and Circulation via Angiogenesis: 

SoftWave Therapy promotes the growth of new blood vessels to the injured area. This increased blood flow enhances the delivery of essential nutrients and oxygen, expedites the removal of waste products, and accelerates the healing process.

Flushing Out Inflammation: 

One of the key benefits of SoftWave Therapy is its ability to reduce inflammation. By breaking down and flushing out trapped inflammation, patients often experience a significant reduction in pain and swelling.

Improved Function and Mobility: 

SoftWave Therapy helps improve joint function and mobility. Patients often regain their range of motion more quickly, allowing them to resume their normal activities.

Stem Cells Activation and Migration: 

Stem cells are instrumental in tissue repair and regeneration. SoftWave Therapy activates and mobilizes stem cells to the injury site, aiding in the healing process.
