Radial Acoustic Wave Therapy

Revitalize Your Health with Shockwave Therapy

The shockwave system uses the ballistic principle of shock wave generation: A pressure wave is formed via a shock wave machine by using accelerated compressed air. The compressed air is generated by an electronically-controlled ballistic-pressure compressor. Using elastic impact, the kinetic energy of the shock wave machine is transferred into the probe of the applicator and then into the client’s body. Consequently, during the treatment, the end of the applicator must be in direct-contact with the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Shockwave is aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic pain. The influence of the shockwaves causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effect is relief from the pain.

How Shockwave Therapy Works:

The heart of our Shockwave Therapy system lies in the ballistic principle of shock wave generation. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

  1. Shock Wave Generation: Our state-of-the-art shock wave machine creates a pressure wave using accelerated compressed air. This compressed air is meticulously generated by an electronically-controlled ballistic-pressure compressor, ensuring precision and consistency.

  2. Transfer of Kinetic Energy: Through elastic impact, the kinetic energy generated by the shock wave machine is skillfully transferred into the probe of the applicator and, subsequently, into your body.

  3. Direct Skin and Tissue Contact: During the treatment, the end of the applicator must be in direct contact with your skin and subcutaneous tissue. This ensures that the shockwaves are effectively targeted at the affected areas, which are the sources of chronic pain.

The Healing Power of Shockwave Therapy:

The shockwaves emitted during the treatment initiate a cascade of therapeutic effects, resulting in relief from chronic pain and improved overall well-being:

  1. Calcium Deposit Dissolution: One of the key benefits of Shockwave Therapy is its ability to dissolve stubborn calcium deposits. This can be particularly beneficial for conditions like calcific tendinitis.

  2. Enhanced Vascularization: Shockwaves stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, improving vascularization in the treated area. This increased blood flow carries essential nutrients and oxygen, further promoting healing and pain relief.

  3. Effective Pain Relief: The combined impact of these effects translates into significant pain relief. Whether you’re dealing with chronic musculoskeletal pain or an injury, Shockwave Therapy can help you regain your quality of life.

Women’s health physiotherapy helps treat women’s health issues such as incontinence, pelvic/ vaginal pain, prenatal and postpartum musculoskeletal pain, osteoporosis, rehabilitation following breast surgery, lymphedema, education prevention, wellness and exercise and so much more.

Women’s health physiotherapists can tailor an exercise plan to help you improve a variety of symptoms caused by women’s health concerns. For example, bone density naturally decreases during menopause. So, a physiotherapist can help you strengthen your bones and improve your bone health through exercise.

Additionally, strengthening your pelvic floor, especially during and after pregnancy, is a huge component of women’s health physiotherapy.
