Shock Wave Therapy

Gentle treatment for calcification of shoulder and tendon insertion pain.


Radial Shock Wave Therapy

An applicator directs radial shock waves above the pain area deep into the tissue where they spread radially (ball-shaped). This stimulates higher metabolism activity in the treated area and speeds up the natural recovery processes. In addition, tissue structures are relaxed; the pain sensation transmission is interrupted.
Treatment consists of three sessions (7-10 minutes each). Patients feel a considerable lessening of pain as early as eight to ten days after the first treatment. Currently, radial shock wave therapy is used to treat the following:



Radial shock wave therapy works without x-rays and medication, stimulates the body self-healing capacities and often helps prevent surgical treatment.
