Non-Surgical & Non-Injection Recovery & Rehab of SLAP Tears with SoftWave Therapy at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness in Rochester, NY

Published May 8th, 2024 by

SLAP tears, or Superior Labrum Anterior and Posterior tears, are a common shoulder injury that can cause significant pain and limit your ability to perform daily activities and sports. At Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness in Rochester, NY, Dr. Sam Camarata offers an advanced solution for SLAP tears using SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Technology (TRT). This innovative therapy promotes faster recovery, reduces pain and inflammation, and enhances mobility and strength, helping patients return to their normal activities quickly and safely.

Understanding SLAP Tears

What is a SLAP Tear?

A SLAP tear is an injury to the labrum, the ring of cartilage that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint (glenoid). The labrum helps stabilize the shoulder by keeping the ball of the upper arm bone (humerus) securely in the socket. A SLAP tear occurs when the top (superior) part of the labrum is torn both in front (anterior) and in back (posterior) of the attachment point of the bicep tendon.

Causes of SLAP Tears

Several factors can contribute to the development of SLAP tears:

  • Trauma: Direct injuries to the shoulder, such as falls, car accidents, or sports-related impacts.
  • Repetitive Motion: Activities that involve repetitive shoulder movements, such as throwing sports (baseball, softball), swimming, and weightlifting.
  • Degenerative Changes: Wear and tear over time due to aging or degenerative joint diseases.

Symptoms of SLAP Tears

Common symptoms include:

  • Shoulder Pain: Pain deep within the shoulder, especially during overhead activities or lifting.
  • Clicking or Popping: Sensation of the shoulder joint clicking, popping, or catching during movement.
  • Weakness: Reduced strength in the shoulder, particularly during overhead movements.
  • Instability: Feeling of the shoulder giving way or being unstable.
  • Limited Range of Motion: Difficulty moving the shoulder fully, especially in overhead activities.

SoftWave TRT: A Breakthrough in Treating SLAP Tears

SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Technology (TRT) offers a non-surgical, non-injection treatment option for SLAP tears. This advanced therapy uses electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate healing at the cellular level, providing numerous benefits.

Benefits of SoftWave TRT for SLAP Tears

Accelerated Recovery SoftWave TRT enhances the body’s natural healing processes, significantly reducing recovery time. This allows patients to return to their daily activities and sports faster and with greater confidence.

Decreased Pain and Inflammation SoftWave TRT targets the sources of pain and inflammation, providing significant relief and enabling patients to move more comfortably.

Improved Mobility and Strength SoftWave TRT promotes tissue repair and regeneration, resulting in stronger and more resilient joints. Improved joint flexibility and range of motion are crucial for overall shoulder health and performance.

Non-Surgical, Non-Injection Therapy SoftWave TRT offers a safe and effective alternative to invasive treatments, avoiding the risks and downtime associated with surgery and injections.

The Science Behind SoftWave Therapy

Angiogenesis: The formation of new blood vessels improves circulation, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen to injured tissues.

Modulation of Inflammation: By regulating the body’s inflammatory response, SoftWave TRT reduces swelling and pain, facilitating faster recovery.

Toll-Like Receptors: Activation of these receptors is crucial for the immune response and tissue regeneration, aiding in the recovery process.

VEGF, eNOS, PCNA, BMP: These growth factors and signaling molecules are essential for tissue repair, vascular growth, and cellular proliferation.

Stem Cell Activation and Migration: SoftWave TRT mobilizes the body’s stem cells to the injury site, promoting natural healing and tissue regeneration.
