In A Class Of Its Own
Musculoskeletal pain often limits the regular practice of sports and affects performance on the job. Introduced in 1999 as the first mobile and economical device for the gentle treatment of soft-tissue pain in orthopedic applications, the Swiss DolorClast Classic is especially designed to tap the soothing effects of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) for a host of indications.
Whether applied to treat acute or chronic wounds, the Swiss DolorClast Classic is effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal problems even if other therapies proved ineffective. Used successfully in professional sports and in orthopaedic practice, the device is based on scientific research and supported by clinical studies. With a success rate of 75%, the Swiss DolorClast Classic delivers an outpatient therapy which fights the causes of pain but without the need for injections, medication or surgery. Performed easily in both inpatient and outpatient settings, the treatment does not need more than five to ten minutes per session. Most patients find considerable relief from pain in just eight to ten days following the first application.
The Swiss DolorClast Classic generates pneumatic energy with Swiss precision for greater control and reliability. Compressed air accelerates a projectile in the handpiece thus generating the shock wave to be delivered to the tissue.
When generated with Swiss DolorClast technology, the shock waves produce an analgesic effect extending to the entire area where pain occurs. Responsible for causing minor discomfort during and after shock wave treatment, substance P – released by C nerve fibers in the tissue and spinal cord – no longer causes pain when such nerve fibers are subject to prolonged activation. But less substance P also causes so-called neurogenic inflammation to decline.
In turn, reduced inflammation may smooth the way to healing, together with the release of growth factors and the activation of stem cells in the treated tissue. In short, the Swiss DolorClast Classic device helps activate self-healing processes where pain occurs and continues to act even after therapy has been completed. It is also effective for the treatment of trigger points responsible for pain caused by poor body posture or improper strain.
