Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy is the perfect treatment method for all chronic and complex musculoskeletal conditions.

The reason why we invested in this therapy is based on following effects:

Pain reduction by production of substance P and the hyper stimulation of pain sensors

Regeneration of affected tissue:

  • Improved blood perfusion and new vascularization
  • Increases in growth factors
  • Increases in mesenchymal stem cells
  • Stimulation of the metabolism

Mechanical effects:

  • Breakdown of calcifications and fibroses

Success rate of 80%:

  • 6 to 8 treatment sessions needed on average
  • Realistic alternative to surgery

We can treat the following indications:

  • Chronic tendinopathies and enthesopathies: Epicondylosis, plantar fasciopathy, rotator cuff tendinopathy (with calcification), etc.
  • Myofascial pain syndrome: Low back pain, neck pain, ‘trigger points’, tension headaches, etc.
  • Sports indications: Proximal hamstring tendinopathy, adductor tendinopathy, peroneal tendinopathy. Medial tibial stress syndrome, ‘Jumper’s knee’, Osgood-Schlatter, etc.
  • Muscular disorders: Muscle pain, hypertonia, spasms, cramps, muscle hardening, fibrosis, etc. And also: Dupuytren’s contracture, Ledderhose disease, acupuncture points, metatarsalgia, etc.
