SHOCK ULTRASOUND

Shockwaves are part of regenerative medicine and are an innovation in the field of rehabilitation.


Focused acoustic waves are a non-surgical option in many diseases of our musculoskeletal system. A wave is generated in the water inside the device (via an electromagnetic mechanism) and through a mirror is transferred into the tissue and focuses precisely on a specific point, for example the point of pain trigger, where the maximum energy is transferred. In this way the energy produced travels through the soft tissues in the form of focal waves.


New generation of percussive ultrasound, more patient-friendly , as the wave focuses on the focus of pain  . This is very important because it allows the therapist to use the system as a diagnostic tool. With the help of the patient's reaction and to the nearest millimeter he can locate the affected area and perform treatment exactly where the problem is, leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.

The only direct focus technology on the market which means that shock waves follow a focal propagation from the moment of their production and not through secondary reflections that lead to discontinuities and less focus

 

  • Real focus technology compared to other technologies that claim to achieve focus but in reality do not succeed or only partially succeed like radial therapy devices.  

  • No injuries to the collateral tissues,  

  • does not cause pain in the superficial tissues before the focus point (very little pain is caused at the focus point when applied to the affected area and used as a diagnostic tool),

  • no anesthesia or sedation,  

  • no hematomas and superficial tissue injury,  Absolutely safe and without side effects treatment

 

Treatment of Myoperitoneal Pain Syndrome - Trigger Points
Pain trigger points (mTrP) are distinct, focused, hypersensitive points that are common in skeletal muscle but can also occur in other soft tissues. They can trigger pain in the muscles located in or around the area or even in a remote area of the muscle (reflex pain).
With shock wave electromagnetic technology, pain trigger points can be located very accurately, very easily, quickly even if they are in deeper layers of tissue that are not palpable. They can be treated with great efficiency and impressive results from the very first treatment.

  How does it work

 

  • Creates hyperemia and reduces inflammation in the affected area

  • Stimulates peripheral nerve endings and activates endorphin secretion thus activating pain reduction

  • Release of substance P. Substance P is a polypeptide that has an analgesic effect

  • Inhibition of the COX II enzyme. By blocking inflammatory transmitters such as COX II, sound waves cause an anti-inflammatory effect. This weakens the inflammatory process.

  • Activation of cellular defenses by helping to release free radicals Acoustic waves help to strengthen the body's endogenous cellular defense mechanisms.

  • Overstimulation of nerve fibers. Overstimulation of nerve fibers blocks the increase of pain signals and thus increases the analgesic effect.

 

Diseases

  • Plantar fasciitis (plantar fasciitis)

  • Achillodynia

  • Metatarsalgia

  • Pain trigger points - thoracic pain / cervical syndrome (trigger point)

  • Painful tibial stress syndrome

  • Painful knee of the jumper with concomitant patellar tendonitis (Jumper's knee)

  • Trochanteritis - trochanteric tendinopathy

  • Calcific tendinitis of the shoulder (calcific tendinitis)

  • Inside and out elbow epicondylitis

  • Muscle spasticity (eg due to cerebral palsy or stroke as a child)

  • Treatment of wounds (eg diabetic foot ulcers) / burns / skin lesions

 

 

Contraindications to application and possible side effects

  • Coagulation disorders (eg hemophilia)

  • Use of anticoagulants, especially Marcumar

  • Thrombosis

  • Pregnancy

 

As for the possible side effects

  • Redness / Hematoma / Pain (remission after 5-10 days)
