Shockwavetherapy – Fight the pain with mechanical energy
A projectile accelerated in the handpiece generates a mechanical pressure wave, which is transferred to the human body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue. The mechanical energy is absorbed by the tissue and decreases as the distance from the application site increases. The mechanical stress triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions:
- Insertion tendinopathy
- Tendon problems
- Chronic inflammation
- Hypertonic muscle systems
- Myofascial syndromes
- Hemotoma treatments
Successful treatment has been conducted and documented in all these areas. This is an impressive confirmation of the efficacy of this easy-to-use therapeutic procedure and shows that a wide range of additional indications can also be treated.
Focused shock wave therapy: Proven to be highly effective
In the most common indications in orthopaedic practice, therapy with focused shock waves has quick and lasting effects.
- long-term pain relief, often even during or immediately after the treatment,
- a noticeably positive effect on inflammatory reactions in musculoskeletal discomfort/conditions,
- very good effects on bone healing, especially also in the treatment of nonhealing fractures and pseudoarthroses
- as well as in the elimination of calcification in tendons, for example, in the case of shoulder calcification.
ESWT expands blood vessels, stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, and thus promotes circulation. An important precondition for supplying the tissue with nutrients and detoxifying it and for rapid healing of diseased, injured, or inflamed tissue structures/of diseased muscle, tendon, or bone tissue.
