DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCEDURE
Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge high-performance method of physiotherapy treatment. It's shown success in treatment being applied by physicians of multiple specialties. The therapy has proven itself to be good in particular treating orthopedic diseases and injuries. This method is widely used by neurologists, urologists, cardiologists, and cosmetologists.
HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED?
Shockwave therapy is performed on an outpatient basis. A special gel is applied to the affected area to start the procedure. The physician sets the necessary parameters on the device and places the handpiece on the affected area. The so-called trigger points that are different for each disease are taken into account. One session takes 7-10 minutes per area. 3-6 procedures are usually enough. They are carried out 1-2 times a week, depending on the disease and the degree of tissue injury.
- Consequences of spinal injury
- Discal hernias and disc protrusions
- Post-stroke muscle hypertonia
- Radiculopathy (nerve root syndrome)
- Migraine, etc.
- Neoplasms in the area to be treated by shockwave therapy.
- Vascular thrombosis of any location.
- Acute infection processes.
- Blood coagulation system pathology.
- Cardiac rhythm disorder
- Skin diseases in the area to be treated by shockwave therapy.
RESULTS OF THE PROCEDURE
Mechanical shockwave impulses give rise to a number of improvements in the lesional tissues, such as a destruction of calcium deposits and an inflammation resolution, a relaxation of the tight muscle structure, an improvement of blood supply and a tissue repair.
