The shock wave therapy device produces mechanical energy by using compressed air, and it makes more than 600 small hits per minute on the area to be treated. According to the laws of mechanics, if the wave reaches a hard material, it achieves a crushing effect. We use this impact of the shock wave to the most extent. By this process we can cure and remove e.g. the heel bone growths.
The shock wave, spreading in a radial direction has a pain reliever effect in a large area. This process enables the shock wave to get to all areas where the pain occurs. The shock waves, when absorbed in the tissues, cause the reduction of inflammation, thus after a few treatments a significant pain reduction occurs.
It dilates blood vessels and improves blood circulation in the given area. Due to congestion, factors reducing inflammation become concentrated, the inflammation becomes significantly reduced, providing a better metabolism for the tissues.
Thanks to its strong massage effect, it has serious muscle relieving effects. The shock waves trigger the body's own healing mechanisms. The treatment terminates the real cause of pain, and thanks to it the injured tissues become gradually regenerated till the ultimate recovery.
The success of treatments can be clearly felt already from the beginning of the therapy; after 2-3 treatments, more than 80% of patients reported a termination of pain, respectively, significant pain reduction. Its application takes place as a cure, and depending on the complaints usually 3-5 treatments are recommended, with breaks of 5-10 days between the occasions. By the shock wave therapy, in most of the cases we manage to reach not only a decreased number of complaints but also an ultimate recovery.
