Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Quick and Direct Relief and Pain Relief with F / RPW SHOCKWAVE THERAPY!
High intensity sound waves that have been successfully applied to chronic pain treatments since the early 1990s.
Focused shock waves stimulate the epidermal fibers of the peripheral nerves, resulting in triggering pain points in deeper but also superficial layers of muscle fibers, resulting in immediate bio-recovery of tissues having some musculoskeletal pathology.
In general, impact waves are defined as an acoustic pulse as they impact during the application of tissue therapy by activating physical body repair procedures. Parameters associated with the process of impinging this wave are pressure, energy density on the surface being focused, strength and power that are regulated by the physician.
Advantages of the Therapy
By using the impact ultrasound is observed:
Increased metabolism and blood microcirculation due to the expansion of small arterioles and capillaries.
In-depth action with the controlled focused emission of energy offered by the device. It is a treatment that does not require anesthesia and has no side effects.
Range of Treatments
ESWT treatment is usually applied in 3 to 8 sessions with a time span of the next session every three to seven days, but it may take longer, in chronic neglected cases, to achieve maximum therapeutic effect. The duration of treatment is 15 to 20 minutes.
The treatment hurts?
The application of shock ultrasound may give rise to a mild sensation of nausea pain at its onset, but with its development and appropriate modification of treatment parameters by the therapist, any pain or discomfort is eliminated. At the end of the session, a feeling of "burning like a hot pepper" is described in the treated area at the same time with a sense of relief.
