Knee Pain Relief Revolutionized: SoftWave Therapy vs. Steroid Injections

Published December 11th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Are you struggling with knee pain and seeking a treatment that goes beyond just masking the symptoms? At Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, under the expert guidance of Dr. Sam Camarata, we've embraced a revolutionary approach that is changing the game in knee pain treatment. SoftWave Therapy, utilizing cutting-edge electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves, is proving to be a safer and more effective alternative to traditional steroid injections. Let's explore why this innovative therapy, available at our clinic in North Chili, NY, is the answer to knee pain.

The Traditional Route: Steroid Injections

For years, steroid injections have been a common treatment for knee pain, offering quick but often short-lived relief. While effective in decreasing inflammation and pain temporarily, these injections can come with side effects and don't address the underlying cause of the pain. Plus, repeated injections can lead to potential complications and side effects.

Enter the Era of SoftWave Therapy

SoftWave Therapy represents a paradigm shift in treating knee pain. This non-surgical, non-injection, drug-free therapy employs electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves - a form of mechanotransduction that triggers the body's natural healing mechanisms. Here's how it stands apart:

Targeting the Root Cause:

Unlike steroid injections that provide temporary relief, SoftWave Therapy goes deeper, addressing the underlying issues causing knee pain.

Decreased Pain and Inflammation:

This innovative therapy significantly reduces pain and inflammation in the knee, offering relief that is both effective and sustainable.

Stem Cell Activation and Migration:

One of the most remarkable aspects of SoftWave Therapy is its ability to stimulate the body's own stem cells, prompting them to activate and migrate to the injured area for repair and regeneration.

Improved Blood Flow and Circulation via Angiogenesis:

SoftWave Therapy promotes angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels, enhancing blood flow and circulation to the knee. This process is crucial for healing and recovery.

Tissue Repair and Regeneration:

By triggering the body’s natural healing responses, SoftWave Therapy aids in repairing and regenerating damaged knee tissues, leading to long-term benefits.

Improved Mobility:

Patients experience improved mobility post-treatment, a critical factor for those whose daily activities are hindered by knee pain.

The Science Behind the Therapy

SoftWave Therapy is more than just a treatment; it's a scientific breakthrough. It engages key biological processes:

  • VEGF, eNOS, PCNA: These are proteins that play vital roles in cellular health and tissue repair. VEGF aids in neovascularization, eNOS improves blood flow, and PCNA is crucial for cell proliferation.
  • Mechanotransduction: This process converts mechanical energy from the waves into cellular responses, fostering healing.
  • Toll-Like Receptors: Involved in the immune response, these receptors aid in detecting and repairing cellular damage.
