What is Swiss DolorClast®: Shock wave therapy for musculoskeletal pain?Our team uses clinically proven state-of-the-art radial shock wave technology to reduce pain, increase blood circulation and activate & speed up effective healing.
One of the best and most effective choices to address muscle pain and tendon conditions is the use of radial shock wave therapy. This is where an acoustic pressure pulse is applied to the injured tissue to initiate repair. Over the short term, it can reduce pain and over the long term, it can promote blood circulation and activate and accelerate the body’s healing processes.
Swiss DolorClast® energy converts shock waves into healing
The team at Santé Group HealthCare is certified in the use of Swiss DolorClast®. This technology uses a handpiece in which compressed air accelerates an internal projectile that strikes a fixed applicator to create kinetic energy. This kinetic energy gets converted into a shock wave that is transmitted through the skin and addresses the injury in the targeted area.
3X more powerful and more clinically effective than other shock wave therapiesCompared to other shock wave therapies, DolorClast® can deliver much more energy density, which is key to stimulating the metabolic reactions your body needs to heal faster. In fact, the energy DolorClast® delivers has been found to be up to three times more powerful than energy emitted by other similar devices1.
Clinically proven therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuriesSwiss DolorClast® therapy can be used to treat 90% of the major symptoms found in musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff tendinopathy
- Upper back pain
- Adhesive capsulitis
- Lower back pain
- Golfer’s elbow
- Patella tip syndrome / Patellofemoral syndrome
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Plantar fasciopathy
What is a shock wave treatment like?
A shock wave therapy session is usually just a few minutes long, so it can be coupled with other therapies within the same session as recommended by your health care professional. The Swiss DolorClast® Shock Wave protocol usually takes three to four sessions, planned at a rate of one session per week.
What are the benefits of shock wave therapy?
When pressure waves are applied to injured tissues, they can stimulate metabolic reactions, including:
- Reducing pain felt by nerve fibers.
- Increasing blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues.
- Starting the healing process triggered by stem cell activation.
