How does shock wave work?
The Swiss DolorClast® Method uses single acoustic pressure waves, called shock waves, to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological pathologies.
By delivering a mechanical stress to injured tissues, Shock Waves enable:
- immediate pain relief
- a healing reaction of the body
The 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 and dermatological indications.
PAIN THERAPY IN 4 STEPS
Locate the area of pain through palpation
Mark the area of pain.
- APPLY GEL
Apply coupling gel to transmit shock waves to the tissue.
- APPLY SHOCK WAVES
Deliver Radial or Focused Shock Waves
to the area of pain while keeping the applicator
firmly in place on the skin.
The compression phase (P+) penetrates the skin and weakens the tissue.
A tensile phase (P-) follows generating cavitation bubbles.
These bubbles collapse causing secondary shock waves.
