Frequently Asked Questions

The use of Shockwave therapy is constantly gaining ground in most cases, thus avoiding a possible surgery and ensuring the optimal therapeutic result. The shock wave ultrasound therapy, which we will refer to later, is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option for diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

Shock ultrasound (Shock waves) is an application of the–for many years- proven method of extracorporeal lithotripsy in the field of physiotherapy and rehabilitation. The essence of the action is the transformation of a chronic inflammatory process, such as a tendonitis or neurosis, into an acute inflammatory condition which the body is able to cure. Shock Waves activate the body’s self-healing process by increasing perspiration and metabolism of the affected area, dissolving tendon calcifications, stimulating the regenerative capacity of tissue cells, increasing its resistance to mechanical load and reducing the load .

The use of extracorporeal shock waves is gaining recognition among physiotherapists and orthopedists due to the good clinical results and the large number of encouraging studies. The use of the shockwave therapy is simple. The physiotherapist identifies where the pain is coming from, spreads gel on the affected area and uses the device on the injured tissues in the area. There are indications for the parameters that the specific medical instrument must be set, but the one that prevails in most researches is the following: frequency: 8Hz, treatment time: 5 minutes, stimuli: 2000.
