How do radial shock waves work?
DOLORCLAST® Shockwave Therapy & Red Hot Chili Peppers
Hot peppers or chili contain capsaicin. This substance overpowers the so-called C-nerve fibers, which are responsible for transmitting the pain, but then disables them for an extended period of time. Everyone knows the feeling – first the whole mouth burns like fire, then a complete numbness sets in.
Research has shown that shock wave therapy works the same way. When activated, the C-type nerve fibers in the tissues and spinal cord release a specific substance (substance P). This substance causes mild discomfort during and after shock wave treatment. But if the C nerve fibers are activated for a longer time, then they become incapable of releasing substance P and causing pain for a certain period of time.
MECHANISMS OF ACTION
DOLORCLAST® shockwave therapy affects the musculoskeletal system through a variety of molecular and cellular mechanisms
– Hyperstimulation of nerves, activation of the gate control mechanism
– removal of substance P from C-fibers
– Blockade of neurogenic inflammation
– Reduced cartilage degradation
– Limits progression of osteoarthritis
– Improved gliding of the tendon due to Lubricin
– Stimulation of the tendon remodeling
– Stimulation of proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts
– New bone remodeling thanks to increased microcracks / bone formation
– Removal of substance P from trigger points
– Functional angiogenesis – improved blood circulation
– Mechanical muscle relaxation
SWISS DOLORCLAST® | TWO TECHNOLOGIES
RADIAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY (RSWT)
Compressed air accelerates a projectile that hits a fixed applicator at high speed (up to 90 km/h). The kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave, which then penetrates radially into the target tissue. This energy creates cavitation bubbles in the tissue, which start the healing process in the damaged tissue.
