Shock Wave Therapy isn’t new but it is making waves when it comes to effective pain relief without drugs! Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of shock waves to treat pain. When applied to injured tissues, shock wave therapy is clinically proven to stimulate these metabolic reactions naturally:
- Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
- Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Kick-start the healing process triggered by stem cells activation
Shock Wave Therapy is a non-invasive, fast and effective treatment with no prescription medications or anesthesia!
How Shock Wave Therapy Works
Simply put, better blood circulation and the formation of new blood vessels improves your metabolism and this activates cell generation and helps dissolve calcium deposits. As a result, shock wave therapy activates self-healing processes at the pain site. The underlying cause of chronic pain may be eliminated even in a short period of time.
The Swiss DolorClast® method of Shock Wave Therapy produces non-invasive, high-energy shock waves and delivers them to the tissue via the surface of the skin and a gel medium.
