What is “Shockwave Therapy”?
Shockwave is a non-invasive therapy which originated in the 1960's. It was used to transmit acoustic waves into the body to disintegrate kidney stones and gallstones without damaging any tissue in between the applicator and the stones. Shockwaves are acoustic pulses. In the medical field the shockwaves propagate through the body using ultrasound gel as a medium.
How the Acoustic Wave is Created Using Radial Shockwave
The compressed air causes the projectile inside the applicator to collide repeatedly with the transmitter (part of the applicator which makes contact with the patient). This results in the transmitter creating an acoustic wave which is then transmitted to the patient.
Analgesic Effect Elimination of Pain
Decrease of muscle tension, inhibition of spasms
Hyperaemia is one of the basic effects of shockwave therapy in the body. It provides better energy supply to hypertonic muscles and their ligamentous structures. Furthermore, it causes the lessening of pathological interactions between actin and myosin. This leads to significant reduction of muscle tension.
Acceleration of Healing
Increase of collagen production
The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is a necessary precondition for the repair processes to the damaged myoskeletal and ligamentous structures.
Improved metabolism and microcirculation
The SWT technology accelerates removal of nociceptive metabolites, increases oxygenation and supplies the damaged tissue with a source of energy. It supports removal of histamine & lactic acid.
New blood vessel formation
New blood vessel formation is caused by SWT through creating capillary microruptures in tendon and bone, thus triggering the repair process.
Dissolving of calcified fibroblasts
Dissolving of calcified fibroblasts The SWT technology dissolves calcified fibroblasts and starts subsequent biochemical decalcification of primary calcaria or secondary symptoms of arthrosis.
