PiezoWave: Shockwave Therapy

PiezoWave Shockwave Therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) or acoustic wave therapy, is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in various musculoskeletal conditions. The term “piezowave” refers to the technology that generates the shockwaves in this specific type of shockwave therapy.

Benefits of This Service:

  • Shockwave Generation

    PiezoWave: Shockwave Therapy utilizes a device that generates acoustic waves through the piezoelectric effect. In this context, piezoelectric crystals within the device convert electrical energy into mechanical shockwaves.

  • Mechanism of Action

    The shockwaves produced by the PiezoWave device create mechanical pressure pulses that travel through tissues. This mechanical stimulation is believed to induce biological responses at the cellular and tissue levels, promoting increased blood flow, cellular repair, and tissue regeneration.

  • Treatments

    Piezowave shockwave therapy is commonly used in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions, including but not limited to: - Tendonitis (e.g., tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis) - Plantar fasciitis - Calcific shoulder tendinopathy - Muscular trigger points - Chronic pain conditions - Stress fractures

  • Pain Reduction

    The therapy is known for its analgesic (pain-relieving) effects. It is thought to modulate pain signals and reduce inflammation, contributing to pain relief in treated areas.

  • Stimulation of Healing Processes

    PiezoWave: Shockwave Therapy is believed to enhance the body's natural healing mechanisms. The mechanical stimulation of tissues may trigger the release of growth factors, promoting tissue repair and regeneration.

  • Non-Invasive Nature

    One of the notable advantages of PiezoWave: Shockwave Therapy is its non-invasive nature. It is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, and patients can usually resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment.
