With the latest medical innovations available at Proactive Wellness Centers’ facilities, patients can now undergo Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) to treat chronic lower back pain and shoulder pain, including frozen shoulder. This non-invasive treatment spurs the body’s natural regenerative processes, increases mobility, and decreases pain, making it effective for short- and long-term healing.

The recent announcement highlights the prevalence of chronic pain and back problems among America’s population. According to a Georgetown University study, 8% of all adults experience persistent back pain that affects their daily lives, and 65 million Americans reported back problems to their doctors. Chronic back pain can cost Americans over $12 billion per year, as adults who suffer from it are more likely to use the health care system or miss work, says Proactive Wellness.
Studies into the efficacy of ESWT have shown that it’s more effective than laser therapy and other non-invasive therapies at reducing pain caused by chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis. As a natural, non-invasive procedure, ESWT can provide patients with short-term and long-term pain relief and increase their quality of life. Proactive Wellness has thus begun offering ESWT to treat patients with mild to severe back and shoulder pain that may cause them discomfort during their daily activities.
ESWT targets several of the body’s natural biological mechanisms. Using acoustics to send pressure waves through the body, the treatment decreases the amount of pain-inducing neurotransmitters, chemicals, and inflammation, and increases blood flow and tendon, tissue, and bone recovery in the area. The microtrauma that this treatment causes also leads to the formation of new blood vessels and aids in stem cell development.
Patients can choose to undergo ESWT in combination with other forms of therapy that Proactive Wellness Centers offers, such as their Ipamorelin growth hormone treatment, which can augment the development of new blood vessels and aid in recovery.
With the introduction of their latest treatment plans, Proactive Wellness Centers remains committed to providing individualized care to their patients. The company was founded by Dr. Lynese L. Lawson in 2006, and it has since become a leading practitioner of integrative and functional medicine in the Washington metropolitan area.
