Meniscus Injuries: Why SoftWave TRT Outperforms Injections for Healing Knee Pain

Published December 30th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Meniscus injuries, common among athletes and active individuals, can cause significant knee pain and impede mobility. These injuries occur when the meniscus, a C-shaped piece of cartilage in the knee acting as a cushion between the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone), gets torn or damaged. Traditionally, treatments have included steroid injections, but at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, we are turning to a more innovative and effective solution: SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy (TRT). This advanced treatment, utilizing electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves, is proving to be a superior alternative for healing knee pain caused by meniscus tears.

Understanding Meniscus Injuries

Meniscus tears can result from any activity that causes a forceful twist or rotation of the knee, including aggressive pivoting or sudden stops and turns. The severity of these injuries can vary, leading to symptoms like pain, swelling, stiffness, and a limited range of motion. In more severe cases, pieces of the torn meniscus can get caught in the knee joint, causing it to lock up.

The Limitations of Steroid Injections

While steroid injections are commonly used to reduce inflammation and pain in the knee, they offer only temporary relief. Moreover, repeated injections can weaken knee tissues and potentially lead to further joint damage.

The Superiority of SoftWave TRT in Meniscus Injury Treatment

SoftWave TRT stands out as a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option for meniscus injuries. Here's why it's becoming the preferred choice over traditional injections:

How SoftWave TRT Works

SoftWave TRT employs a unique mechanism using electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves. These waves stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, offering several advantages in treating meniscus injuries:

  • Reducing Inflammation and Pain: SoftWave TRT effectively targets the inflammation at the site of the injury, providing significant pain relief.
  • Promoting Tissue Repair via Stem Cell Activation: The therapy stimulates the body’s natural regenerative processes, aiding in the repair of the damaged meniscus tissue via stem cell activation and migration to injury site.
  • Enhancing Blood Flow via Angiogenesis: Improved circulation is crucial for healing, and SoftWave TRT facilitates increased blood flow to the injured knee, aiding in faster recovery.

Advantages of SoftWave TRT Over Steroid Injections

Non-Invasive and Safe

SoftWave TRT is a non-surgical, drug-free alternative, eliminating the risks and side effects associated with steroid injections and invasive procedures.

Effective and Targeted Relief

This therapy provides targeted treatment to the injured meniscus, offering more efficient and effective relief from pain and swelling than steroid injections.

Long-Term Improvement

Unlike steroid injections that offer temporary relief, SoftWave TRT promotes long-term healing of the knee joint, reducing the likelihood of future injuries and degeneration.
