We use the original Swiss DolorClast Radial Shockwave Therapy device from Switzerland. This device is one of a kind and is used for a variety of conditions. Shockwave can be used on your back, heels, shoulders, and other areas where you have pain.
The main purpose of this device is to breakdown calcification that gets build up around or on your joints. Shockwave can also be used if you have a carpal tunnel to release the jammed nerve. It is a non-surgical treatment for musculoskeletal conditions and is successfully employed around the world. It is used as an alternative to surgery for chronic musculoskeletal diseases. It works to speed up the healing process in damaged tissue such as bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

RSWT delivers Analgesic Effect, Fast Recovery Time & Mobility Restoration

  • Use of single acoustic pressure wave to treat musculoskeletal issues
  • Has been clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissue, stimulate metabolic reactions:
        • Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
        • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
        • Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation
  • Compressed air accelerates a projectile which strikes a fixed applicator:
        • The kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave delivered to the targeted tissue

Shockwave therapy is clinically proven to heal musculoskeletal conditions. It works using acoustic waves which are similar to air pressure waves.

Waves are administered through contact with the skin then triggers the body’s natural mechanism of self-healing by stimulating blood flow to the affected area. As a result, our body gets the ability to:

  • Break down calcification in muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Heal scar tissue
  • Provide pain relief and reduce inflammation
  • Increase blood circulation, stimulate a metabolic reaction, and speed up the healing process
  • Create anesthetic effect during the treatment
  • Treat the root cause not symptoms

It produces an anti-inflammatory effect, activates cellular defense, dilates blood vessels, increases blood circulation, and rejuvenates bone tissue.

Radial Shock-Wave therapy is a safe and effective modality for chronic pain relief

How Fast Will the Treatment Work?

Depending on your diagnosis, the healing process varies. In a lot of cases, it delivers pain reduction after 1st treatment. Most people experience significant improvement results after one to two sessions. Considering that cells need time to recover, in rare cases results can take up to 12 weeks. It is important to finish recommended treatment sessions in order to treat your condition, missing appointments, and making a long interval time between sessions may result in a longer than needed treatment time frame.

How safe is RSWT?

Shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people. The treatment success rate is equal to or greater than surgery. It’s a well-tolerated, safe, effective, and non-invasive method that stimulates the self-healing process down to the cellular level. RSWT produces an anti-inflammatory effect and stimulates the body’s natural healing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Usually, you may need 3-5 sessions, with 2-3 days apart. The duration of treatments is about 10-15 minutes. Treatments are well tolerated by everyone. Very seldom some minor side effects may occur redness or a bit of swelling which goes away within a day.

Do I need doctor’s referral?

No, you do not need a referral to get your treatment in our clinic but check your Extended Health Care Insurance for specification in terms of Physiotherapy. You may need to provide the Insurance Company with a doctor’s note.

Why use it?

RSWT is fast, safe, and effective. It is a great option instead of surgery for many conditions. It is cheaper than surgery and has a higher success rate. There are no medications or injections, no anesthesia, no rehabilitation time, and really no major side effects.

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
