The shockwave system uses the ballistic principle of shockwave generation: A pressure wave is formed via a projectile by using accelerated compressed air. The compressed air is generated by an electronically-controlled ballistic-pressure compressor. Using elastic impact, the kinetic energy of the projectile is transferred into the probe of the applicator and then into the client’s body. Consequently, during the treatment, the end of the applicator must be in direct-contact with the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
Shockwave is aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic pain. The influence of the shockwave causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effects are relief from the pain.
Shockwave has the following effects:
Cellular: Increase in cell membrane transmittance by improving ionic channels actMty, stimulation of cell division, stimulation of cellular cytokines production.
Reproduction of vessels in the area of tendons and muscles: Improvement of blood circulation, increase in concentration of growth factor beta 1, chemotactic and mitogenic effect on osteoblasts.
Effect on nitrogen oxide system: Bone healing and remodeling. Improvement of macro-circulation and metabolism. Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts.
Supports the production of collagen.
