So, What Is Shockwave Therapy?

The Swiss DolorClast® Shockwave Therapy Machine uses single acoustic pressure waves, called shock waves, to treat musculoskeletal pathologies.
By delivering a mechanical stress to injured tissues, Shock Waves enable:

  • Immediate pain relief  
  • A healing reaction of the bodyThe 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 indications.

It is an effective and non-invasive method for the treatment of localized musculoskeletal pathologies. Our physiotherapists can treat the below listed conditions.

In addition to the above conditions, Dolorclast Shockwave Therapy can also effectively treat the following problems:

  • Painful trigger points
  • DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness).
  • Deep tissue massage for improved recovery post competition.

Typical treatment plans involve 3 x weekly visits.

Most patients experience pain reduction after the first or second visit!

The Therapeutic Effects Include:

RELEASES MORE SUBSTANCE P

One of the messenger substances is substance P, a pain mediator and growth factor. On the one hand, the release of substance P by shockwaves has an analgesic effect. On the other, it dilates the blood vessels, stimulates blood circulation and contributes to the formation of new bone tissue. NO (nitric oxide) also has a vasodilatory effect and plays an important role in angiogenesis.

In short, when applied to a painful region, shockwaves produce an analgesic effect, increase blood circulation and facilitate the repair process.

INHIBITS THE COX II ENZYME

By inhibiting inflammatory mediators such as COX II, shockwaves produce an anti-inflammatory effect. This weakens any inflammatory process.

ACTIVATES CELLULAR DEFENSES

By contributing to the release of free radicals, shockwaves help strengthen the body’s endogenous cellular defence mechanisms to protect it from disease.

HYPERSTIMULATES NERVE FIBRES

Scientific studies also show that shockwaves act in another way. Over stimulating the nerve fibers, blocks an increase in pain stimuli and therefore intensifies the analgesic effect (Gate Control Theory).
