What is shock wave therapy?
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment that involves passing shock waves through your skin to the affected area. High-frequency sound waves are used to physically vibrate and agitate musculoskeletal tissues. It is a highly effective procedure to treat pain and restore mobility with minimal risks or side effects.
It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions:
- Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres
- Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation
The Swiss DolorClast® Method
New for 2020 The Swiss DolorClast® Method uses single acoustic pressure waves, called shock waves, to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological pathologies.
By delivering a mechanical stress to injured tissues, Shock Waves enable:
- Effective pain relief
- A healing reaction of the body
The Swiss DolorClast Method® is the most well-researched shock wave therapy. A combination of unique technologies, clinically proven protocols and education ensure significant improvement in given musculoskeletal and dermatological indications.
