Pain Control Therapy

Pain Relief Using Shock Wave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is the answer treatment that takes care of any pain. The treatment may trigger a variety of shockwave2actions that have proven to be effective in treating different aspects of pain.

Releases more substance P

  • one of these messenger substances is substance P; a pain mediator and growth factor.
  • on one hand the release of substance P by shockwaves has an analgesic effect (painkiller), on the other hand, it dilates the blood vessels, stimulates blood circulation and contributes to the formation of new bone tissue.
  • we can clearly say that when the shockwave is applied to the area of inflammation; it produces an analgesic effect, increases blood circulation, and facilitates the repair process.

Inhibits the COX II enzyme

  • when going through inflammatory mediators such as COX II, shockwaves produce an anti-inflammatory Shockwaveeffect.

Activates cellular defenses

  • by contributing to the release of free radicals, shockwaves help strengthen the body’s endogenous cellular defense mechanisms to protect it from disease.

Hyperstimulates nerve fibers

  • overstimulating the nerve fibres blocks further increase of pain; which will intensify the pain blockage effect.

How It Works?

  1. The precision compressed-air impulse speeds up the projectile in the handpiece
  2. The impact of the projectile on the applicator produces the shockwave
  3. The shockwave is delivered to the tissue

Benefits for the Patient

  • Outpatient treatment
  • No anesthesia
  • Non-invasive
