The Sonix Therapy Hawaii’s Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy System has provided therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions. Here are some of the common issues:
Arthritis: Inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling are the most common symptoms of arthritis. People may experience a decrease in range of motion, and redness of the skin around the joint.
Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae. Inflamed bursae cause pain and discomfort in the affected location. Bursae are fluid-filled sacs around the joints and surround the areas where tendons, skin and muscle tissues meet bones.
Carpal Tunnel: Carpal tunnel syndrome is the compression of the median nerve as it passes into the hand. The median nerve is located on the palm side of your hand. The median nerve provides sensation to the thumb, index finger, long finger and part of the ring finger. It can also lead to numbness, weakness and tingling on the side of your hand near the thumb.
Diabetic Neuropathy: A common complication of type 1 and type 2 diabetes due to uncontrolled high blood sugar levels that result in damage to the nerves. Symptoms include: "pins and needles" in the feet, sensitivity to touch, difficulty with coordination when walking, numbness or pain in the extremities, muscle weakness, nausea and indigestion, diarrhea or constipation, dizziness upon standing, foot ulcers, skin infections, and other symptoms.
Fibromyalgia: A chronic disorder marked by widespread, unexplained pain in the muscles and joints. The condition is often associated with tender points, which are termed "trigger points." A person can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia if they have widespread pain and tenderness in at least 11 of the known 18 trigger points. Common trigger points include: back of the head, tops of shoulders, upper chest, hips knees and outer elbows.
Lupus: An autoimmune disease that cause swelling (inflammation) and a wide variety of symptoms, including fatigue, hair loss, skin rash, pulmonary issues, kidney inflammation, painful, swollen joints, gastrointestinal problems, thyroid problems, dry mouth, eyes and other symptoms.
Lyme Disease: A bacterial infection that is spread through the bite of one of several types of ticks. The symptoms people experience changes depending on the stage the disease is in: from a rash, to flu-like symptoms, to headaches, arthritis, brain disorders, numbness in the arms, legs, hands or feet, etc.
Migraines: An intense, sometimes debilitating headache. Symptoms occur in phases, and may begin days before the headache, and may include: food cravings, depression, fatigue, yawning, hyperactivity, irritability and neck stiffness. During the next phase, some may experience visual, motor or speech disturbances. The phase when the migraine occurs can last anywhere from four hours to three days, and may include nausea, vomiting, and/or light sensitivity, and usually a throbbing pain on one side of the head.
Multiple Sclerosis: An autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). Two of the most common symptoms are fatigue and difficulty walking (numbness in legs/feet; difficulty balancing; muscle weakness; muscle spasticity). Other common symptoms include: speech disorders, tremors, cognitive issues and chronic pain.
Chronic Pain: Pain that lasts longer than six months. With chronic pain, the body continues to send pain signals to the brain, even after an injury heals. This can last several weeks to years. Chronic pain can limit your mobility and reduce your flexibility, strength, and endurance. The pain may feel sharp or dull, causing a burning or aching sensation in the affected areas. It may be steady or intermittent, coming and going without any apparent reason. Chronic pain can occur in nearly any part of the body. The pain can feel different in the various affected areas.
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD): A blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm. This can occur in the arteries or veins. PVD typically causes pain and fatigue, often in the legs, and especially during exercise.
Sciatica: A common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve, a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of each leg. Sciatica usually affects only one side of the lower body. Often, the pain extends from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through the leg. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also extend to the foot or toes.
