The Swiss DolorClast® Method uses single acoustic pressure waves, called shock waves, to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological pathologies.
By delivering a mechanical stress to injured tissues, Shock Waves enable:
The Swiss DolorClast Method® is the most well-researched shock wave therapy. A combination of unique technologies, clinically proven protocols and education ensure significant improvement in given musculoskeletal and dermatological indications.
A shock wave is a single acoustic pulse characterised by a rapid rise to a high peak pressure followed by a rapid drop to below ambient pressure. They are sent to the affected area from the point of contact on the skin’s surface.
The Swiss DolorClast® Method uses single acoustic pressure waves to treat musculoskeletal and dermatological pathologies. It offers and combines two technologies – the propagation of radial and/or focused shock waves – to optimise treatment results.
Compressed air accelerates a projectile which strikes a fixed applicator.
The kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave delivered to the target tissue through the skin.
These shock waves are conveyed radially for broad treatment areas.
Step 1: Palpate
Locate the area of pain through palpation and biofeedback.
Step 2: Mark
Mark the area of pain.
Step 3: Apply gel
Apply coupling gel to transmit shock waves to the tissue.
Step 4: Apply shock waves
Deliver Radial or Focused Shock Waves to the area of pain while keeping the applicator firmly in place on the skin.
