Re: Shockwave Therapy for Trigger Points

"You cannot get the right answers if you fail to ask the right questions" The 'theory' that the anatomical and physiological aspects of this condition are only related to 'trigger points' is a gross oversimplification and thus flawed. We do however, treat any related 'trigger points' using the 'stan...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Prostatitis

Unfortunately, we've had people join up before for purely commercial reasons, and if they're selling snake oil it's not tolerated. Chiropractic is borderline, IMO. If you wish to educate, fine, and if you are canvassing for patients, that's fine too, as long as you are clear about it. We are attemp...

Re: My Report on Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

The protocol outlined in that paper is expensive and does not address the psychological and stress aspects that underlie the condition for many patients. It does, in fact. Quite extensively. Patients are educated on many aspects of stress, personality types, habits and their relationships as contri...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Prostatitis

But many are not. See our Success Stories section. Great. So the reasons you give are not really valid. They aren't 'my' reasons, but the personal wishes of some patients, so I'm not one to judge their validity (upholding privacy is paramount to testimonials). We don't allow private PMing here. Que...

Re: My Report on Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

Shockwave therapy should be considered an essential ingredient to a more comprehensive treatment protocol, but not a stand-alone treatment. Any treatment that attempts a 'this or that' approach is doomed to fail for a condition as complex as chronic prostatitis. Chronic prostatitis requires a multit...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Prostatitis

I'd be interested in some patient reports. If you have successful patients, perhaps they can join up and share? Absolutely. Some patients are reluctant to share their experience. This is in part due to the sensitive nature of the condition. Other reasons given include: the desire to "move on" with ...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Trigger Points

Still I don't know how this would be applicable to intrapelvic trigger points. Shockwaves are able to penetrate tissue at a depth of the operators choosing (depending on settings of frequency and energy level). Much like shockwaves are able to penetrate a great depth to target renal calculi (kidney...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Prostatitis

webslave, I suppose those are 'problems'. However, those problems are not unique to shockwave therapy, but every therapy type in existence (the reliance on a trained professional with skills to identify and treat a condition, the need for more than one treatment, etc.). The goal is to affect the con...

Re: Shockwave Therapy for Trigger Points

Here is the paper you alluded to, webslave. Notice that it is based on an animal model, and that there are no effects on myelinated fibres. Furthermore, if on analyses the details of the studies, the proposed mechanism and effects are enhanced due to the small size of a rabbit femur relative to the ...
