Supported by clinical studies and scientific research, the Swiss Dolorclast combines the effect of different healing factors to bring about relief even if the pain is persistent. Application of the Swiss Dolorclast has been shown to improve blood circulation and revascularization, improve metabolic activity and cell regeneration. Shock waves also intensify the analgesic effect by overstimulating the nerve fibers thus blocking an increase in pain stimuli.
Appropriate use of the Swiss Dolorclast ESWT has demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of chronic tendinopathies, including Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendinopathies, tennis/golfers elbow, and rotator cuff tendinopathies. Effective results are also noted for plantar fasciitis and myofascial trigger points.
Following a comprehensive musculoskeletal exam, accurate diagnosis, and establishment of a treatment plan, ESWT may be recommended with known effectiveness for appropriate conditions. ESWT is not appropriate for all conditions, and alternative and/or adjunct treatment options will be considered for every patient on an individual basis. Outcome measures completed on each patient receiving ESWT will assist us in further determining appropriate patient selection.
