Stemwave Care in Rochester, NY
StemWaveTM delivers focused waves through a high energy electrical discharge in water. The voltage is discharged between the opposing tips (plus and minus pole) of an electrode. The spark creates an equalization of voltage between the two tips of the electrode and then a plasma bubble is created. This bubble then explodes, compressing the water around it, and generates a pressure >10 MPa within only a few nanoseconds.
When we have an injury, be it a macro (big) trauma, or micro (small) trauma, our tissues have to be able to communicate with the rest of our body to inform it of the harm. This is done by damaged cells releasing different constituents, such as chromatin (affects DNA health), proteins, and RNA (it forms stable double helix RNA when released in this fashion). In some spaces, it is also called cytoplasmic/cytosolic, or even messenger RNA. Researchers have given a name to the group of released chemicals and that is Damage/Danger Associated Molecular Patterns (DAMPs). DAMPs create inflammatory processes and can even play a role in disease formation due to the inflammation they create.
What is interesting about this grouping of chemicals is that it is currently believed that RNA is responsible for the heavy recruitment of the healing agents (this is discussed below with research to validate this point). The body responds to injury by activating the innate immune system along with bringing in stem cells (to rebuild damaged tissues) due to a response from a certain type of receptors, called toll-like receptors (TLR). The most involved and studied are the TLR2, TLR 3, TLR4, and TLR5. The human body is understood to have 10 TLRs, but there is a bit of a debate to this. The ones that most apply to our discussion about reduction of inflammation and regeneration are the TLR3 and TL4.
