BTL Shockwave therapy is new non-invasive solution for chronic pain in shoulder, back, heel, knee or elbow. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is most frequently used in physiotherapy, orthopaedics and sports medicine. Applications are mostly associated with the treatment of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back and cervical pain.
Most common indications include: painful shoulder, epicondylitis, low back pain, Achilles tendon pain, patellar tendonitis, trigger points. During Shockwave therapy, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects including neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up. Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved. BTL shockwave therapy device is the most powerful and compact shockwave unit on the market. It is supplied with ergonomically shaped applicator with extremely long lifetime.
