Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy, Shockwave (SWT) is a non-invasive method, represents a rapid increase in the pressure for a very short time, followed by a short phase of negative pressure.

The device for shockwave therapy generates low frequency (5-20Hz) shock waves and a pressure of 1-5 bars directly at the place of the injury. The waves are scattered radially in the tissues. The waves generated by the device are mechanical with high frequency and carry a large amount of energy. They reach in great depth and affect pain immediately. In this way, they stimulate the regenerative and restorative processes of the body – the secretion of growth factors in the tendons and bones. These processes provoke the body to send its healing cells to the treated site, and increase the blood circulation there.

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy has been used for a long time, mainly as therapy for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal disorders. The method can be successfully used for both chronic traumas and acute traumatic processes (muscular stretching, sprains, etc.).

Moreover, the therapy can be combined with some anti-cellulite treatments for better results.

Shockwave therapy can be used for the following health conditions:

  • Calcific tendinitis
  • Chronic patellar tendinitis
  • Hereditary multiple exostoses
  • Periostitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Lateral epicondylitis
  • Lateral epicondylitis
  • Medial epicondylitis
  • Shoulder tendinitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Pseudoarthrosis
  • Stress fractures
  • Myofascial analgesic massage
  • Muscle pain in the neck, back and waist
  • Cellulite treatment – perfectly combined with cryolipolysis for better effect.

 

The therapy is administered via a special device nozzle directly to the problem using an ultrasound contact gel. During the procedure, the patient is placed in a comfortable position depending on the location of the problem.
