Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is typically used to treat Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, calcific tendonitis of the shoulder, golfers elbow, trochanteric bursitis, patella tendonitis and shin splints. ESWT technology can also be used to successfully treat other chronic enthesopiathies, acupuncture points and painful trigger points.

How it works?

Comprehensive product support The Swiss DolorClast has become the UK’s leading Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) device. It is currently being used by orthopaedic surgeons, consultant radiologists and chartered physiotherapists to successfully treat various tendonopathies and other orthopaedic indications.

ESWT is a revolutionary technology that involves shockwaves being passed through the skin to the injured part of the patient’s body. The shockwaves that are produced by the Swiss DolorClast are generated by a projectile that is propelled at high speed by compressed air inside a hand-held applicator.

When the applicator is placed on the surface of the skin – together with a ‘coupling medium’ – the impulses are delivered through the skin as a shockwave that spreads inside the injured tissue as an aspherical ‘radial’ wave.

These radial shockwaves initiate an inflammation-like response in the injured tissue that is being treated. This prompts the body to respond naturally by increasing blood circulation, the number of blood vessels and therefore metabolism in the injured tissue. This accelerates the body’s natural healing process by increasing cell generation and dissolving calcium deposits.
