Extracorpeal Shockwave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment method that provides high-energy sound waves into painful areas of the body. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since the 1980s to disintegrate kidney stones. Modern therapy has seen these shock waves being introduced to the body by means of a freely moving hand piece that covers the entire pain region to allow pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones.
The radial therapy head, is a compressed air operated, ballistic shock wave generator. A projectile is accelerated by compressed air. The kinetic energy stored in the motion and weight of the projectile is converted into acoustic energy in the form of long-wave shock pulses when the projectile strikes a transmitter. These acoustic pulses are then further transmitted to the target tissue by means of a protective cap and gel.
With its Swiss pioneering technology, we are setting new non-surgical standards in orthopaedic / musculoskeletal and aesthetic therapy. This eliminates the source of pain and mobility restoration, to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain. Our innovative treatment plans allow pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones - in other words the root causes of your pain - to be eliminated systematically.
