Is The Swiss DolorClast® Method Clinically Proven?
Yes, being clinically proven is one of the pillars of the Swiss DolorClast® Method. Many TCRs demonstrating safety and efficacy of the Swiss DolorClast® Method on different pathologies have been published in the international peer-review literature. Fifteen of these RCTs have been listed in the PEDro database (search for “radial shock wave” at www.pedro.org.au)
Can I Treat Acute Pathologies With ESWT?
In general this is possible, With regard to tendon pathology it is critical to note that there are no acute tendinopathies, only newly diagnosed ones. Safety and efficacy of radial ESWT for newly diagnosed tendinopathies have already been demonstrated in the international peer-review literature for plantar fasciopathy (Rampe et al., 2010), primary long bicipital tenosynovitis (Liu et al., 2012) and lateral or medial epicondylitis (Lee et al., 2012)
Can I Use Local Anesthetics In Conjunction With ESWT?
It does not harm. However, in case of chronic plantar fasciopathy it has been shown that repetitive low-energy ESWT without local anesthesia is more efficient than repetitive low-energy ESWT with local anesthesia (Rompe et al., 2005). The reason is that local anesthetics block peripheral nerve fibers including C nerve fibers. However, you cannot block C nerve fibers with local anesthetics and activate anesthetics limits and may even prevent biofeedback from the patient during the treatment.
Can I Combine ESWT With Other Treatments?
Yes, you can. In case of chronic midportion Achilles tendinopathy it has been shown that the combination of radial ESWT and eccentric loading resulted in statistically significantly better clinical outcome than eccentric loading alone (Rompe et al., 2009a), with radial ESWT being as effective as eccentric loading for this indication (Rompe et al., 2007).
What Are The Contraindications Of The Swiss DolorClast® Method?
Treatment over air-filled tissue (lung, gut)
Treatment of pre-ruptured tendons
Treatment of pregnant women
Treatment of patients under the age of 18 (except for the treatment of Osgood-Schlatter disease)
Treatment of patients with blood-clotting disorders (including local thrombosis)
Treatment of patients treated with oral anticoagulants
Treatment of patients treated with local cortisone injections (within the six-week period following the last local cortisone injection)
