Shockwave Therapy Equipment for Orthopaedics/ pain therapy portable shockwave
A shockwave is defined as a wave with a rapid increase of increase of pressure
within a very short time and then having a gradual decrease of pressure with a
small negative pressure phase. shockwave is aimed at the affected area that are
the source of chronic pain, the influence of the shockwaves causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effect
is relief from the pain.
Shockwave has the following effects:
> Cellular: Increase in cell membrane transmittance by improving ionic channels
activity, stimulation of cell division, stimulation of cellular cytokines production.
>Reproduction of vessels in the area of tendons and muscles: Improvement of
blood circulation, increase in concentration of growth factor beta1, chemotactic, and
mitogenic effect on osteoblasts
>Effect on nitrogen oxide system: Bone healing and remodeling.
>Improvement of micro-circulation and metabolism.
>Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts
supports the production of collagen.
>Reduction in tissue tension
