Fascia & Pain Services
Fascia, soft tissue healing and pain management are treated at Ageless Medical Solutions with great success. Storz Shockwave and Powe Plate treatments have proven effective in treating pain and other fascial restrictions, along with other progressive therapies. Dr. Akey is the co-editor of the highly acclaimed Fascia, Function, and Medical Applications, the first textbook on fascia geared toward medical doctors. She also teaches on the vast importance of fascial health in aging, immunity and overall health.
Shock wave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) and acoustic wave therapy (AWT) among other names, uses acoustic waves to transmit high peak pressure waves to promote and accelerate healing for subacute and chronic conditions such as:
- Remodel fibrotic tissue, release trigger points
- Reverse chronic inflammation
- Increase nitric oxide (NO)
- Activate stem cells and growth factors
- Reduce pain faster
- Improve range of motion
- Increase blood flow, microcirculation
- Stimulate tissue remodeling, neovascularization
Ageless Medical Solutions uses the Storz Device.
PowerPlate is shown to be effective in reducing stiffness in joints, reducing lactic acid build-up in the body, and aids in the ease of recovery after injury. It is also correlated with postural control and fall prevention in older adults.
