Shock-wave therapy is a non-surgical therapeutic method to deal with pain, with no need for painkillers. It speeds up recovery and cures various indications of acute or chronic pain. The therapy is conducted with a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, and urology. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. It speeds up recovery and cures various indications of acute or chronic pain. (Source: https://www.shockwavetherapy.eu/

How can Shockwave Therapy help me?
- New Blood Vessel Formation
Nutrient blood flow is necessary to start and maintain the repair processes of damaged tissue. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary microruptures in tendon and bone.
- Reversal of Chronic Inflammation
Mast cells are one of the key components of the inflammatory process. Their activity may be increased by using pervasive acoustic waves.
- Stimulation of Collagen Production
The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is a necessary precondition for the repair processes of the damaged myoskeletal and ligamentous structures. Shockwave therapy accelerates procollagen synthesis.
- Dissolution of Calcified Fibroblasts
Calcium build-up is most often the result of micro-tears or other trauma to a tendon. Acoustic waves break up the existing calcifications.
- Dispersion of Pain Mediator “Substance P”
Substance P is a neurotransmitter that mediates pain information through the C-fibers. This neuropeptide is generally associated with intense, persistent and chronic pain.
- Release of Trigger Points
Trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder and limbs. Delivered acoustic energy unblocks the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis in the myofilaments and releases the trigger points.
