Shock Wave Therapy



Shock Wave Therapy

Shock wave therapy is a treatment method based on the use of shock waves (SW). Shock waves surround us constantly and everywhere, on the street, at home, at work, but they have a frequency lower than that which the human ear perceives, so we don’t hear them. The shock wave itself carries a lot of energy, which we use for good, directing it to the painful foci of the body with the help of specialized equipment. This energy helps to activate the processes of regeneration, recovery and healing. Shock wave therapy is used in many fields of medicine and cosmetology, including such fields as orthopaedics, cardiology, neurology, dermatology, urology, sports medicine, and traumatology.

Shock wave therapy is divided into focused shock wave therapy and radial shock wave therapy.

The use of extracorporeal shock-wave therapy devices allows acting on certain parts of the body, which are the foci of a disease, without damaging the skin and soft tissues. In these areas, there is a decrease in pain, improvement of blood microcirculation, activation of metabolic processes, restoration of cellular structures. The effectiveness of a focused shock wave in the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system is confirmed by many scientific studies and publications. A unique focused shock wave treatment technique is an alternative to surgery. Focused shock wave therapy has a beneficial effect on the whole body, as a result of which there is an improvement in the patient's physical activity, well-being, which leads to an increase in the quality of life. This technique has a persistent, long-lasting effect, but the maximum effect is achieved after completing the entire course, the duration of which is prescribed by a specialist, taking into account all the physiological characteristics of your body and the specificity of the disease.
