Shockwave therapy, a versatile treatment modality, is employed by a diverse range of practitioners such as physiotherapists, urologists, chiropractors, podiatrists, and aestheticians. It is effective for a multitude of conditions that are recognized as standard approved indications.
Shockwave ® therapy harnesses high-velocity acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s cells without damaging them. This gentle yet powerful force encourages cells to release micro vesicles, which are like cellular messengers containing vital healing substances.
These micro-vesicles trigger a cascade of natural repair processes in surrounding tissues. They stimulate growth of new blood vessels through angiogenesis and vasculogenesis and awaken stem cells, contributing to tissue regeneration. Moreover, Shockwave therapy boosts cell metabolism, supports cell proliferation, and modulates inflammation, enhancing the body’s own healing response.
This process of cellular communication, initiated by Shockwave, taps into the body’s inherent healing mechanisms, offering a therapeutic effect that is both potent and safe, without significant side effects.
Shockwave technology stands out for its ability to promote regeneration at a cellular level, aiding in the repair of tendons, bones, and soft tissues. While individual results may vary, many clients experience immediate improvement, high overall success rates.
For physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrists, dermatologists, and aestheticians, Shockwave offers a groundbreaking addition to your therapeutic arsenal. It’s not just a treatment; it’s a transformation for your practice and new horizon of care for your clients.
3. This traditional medical technique generates shockwaves using a spark plug within a water medium, concentrated at a focal point by a parabolic reflector.
This method creates shockwaves through electrical pulses in a coil, either flat or cylindrical. For flat coils, a membrane compresses water to generate the pulse, which is then honed by an acoustic lens. Cylindrical coils use a reflector to focus the shockwave.
2. This technique utilizes piezoelectric crystals that, when electrically stimulated, concentrate pressure waves to a precise focal point.
Radial pressure waves are produced when a projectile, propelled by compressed air or electromagnetic induction, strikes an applicator. This collision converts most energy into a pressure wave that spreads radially, diminishing in intensity with distance.
