Non-Surgical Relief for Basal Joint Arthritis: SoftWave Therapy

Published October 30th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Are you struggling with the pain and stiffness of basal joint arthritis? The thumb joint is a common location for arthritis to strike, making even simple tasks painful. But before you consider surgery or injections, let's explore a revolutionary non-surgical option: SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy, available at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata and his team.

Understanding Basal Joint Arthritis:

Basal joint arthritis, also known as thumb arthritis, occurs when the cartilage at the base of the thumb wears away. This leads to pain, swelling, and decreased mobility. It's often caused by age-related wear and tear, but it can also result from overuse or prior injuries.

Symptoms of Basal Joint Arthritis:

Pain and tenderness at the base of the thumb

Swelling and inflammation

Decreased grip strength

Limited range of motion

Difficulty performing everyday tasks

Traditional Treatments:

Doctors typically start with conservative treatments like splints, medication, and hand therapy. However, in severe cases, surgery or corticosteroid injections might be recommended. While these treatments can provide relief, they also come with risks and downtime.

Enter SoftWave Therapy:

SoftWave Therapy is a game-changer in the world of arthritis treatment. Here's why:

Decreased Inflammation: 

SoftWave Therapy helps flush out trapped inflammation around the affected joint. By reducing inflammation, it alleviates pain and swelling.

Improved Blood Flow:

Through a process called angiogenesis, SoftWave Therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. This increased blood flow enhances the body's natural ability to heal, bringing vital nutrients to the affected area.

Scar Tissue Breakdown: 

Over time, arthritis can lead to the formation of scar tissue. SoftWave Therapy can break down this scar tissue, improving mobility and reducing pain.

Stem Cell Activation: 

SoftWave Therapy activates your body's repair cells, or stem cells. These cells migrate to the injured or arthritic area, promoting healing and regeneration.
