Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment option in orthopedic and rehabilitation medicine It’s main benefits are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers (narcotics) makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.
All too often people suffer with chronic pain they are trying to manage, or face surgery that could cause more problems. For many, Shockwave would provide a successful alternative to surgery, if only people knew about it
The advantages of Shockwave are many:
Mechanism of Action:
The term shockwave refers to mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave in the body. In modern pain therapy, shockwave energy is conducted from the point of origin to the painful body regions, where it applies its healing capacities.
The easiest way to think of the energy created by a Shockwave machine is to imagine a Jacuzzi, as the bubbles are generated outside of the body, the energy of the jets is focused on a certain area and the effect can be felt below the surface of your skin. The stronger the jet, the deeper the effect. Similarly, the more focused the jet, the more targeted the impact.
A Shockwave machine works in a similar way. A wave of energy is created and delivered to the body through a hand-piece used by the practitioner to deliver the wave to the target area.
The acoustic radial wave consists of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of the gas bubbles within the fat structures, which re-expand after the acoustic radial wave and thus ensure a destabilization of the fat structures.
The observed tissue reactions and metabolic effects are basically:
