We are entering a new era of health care moving towards regenerative sports medicine. Ultrasound Guided Focused Shockwave Therapy utilises the latest technological advances to deliver a non-invasive therapeutic
stimulus in the form of an acoustic signal. This mechanical stimulus is converted into a biological reaction which has been highly effective in treating both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
The treatment commences with a diagnostic ultrasound scan of the tissues, we are able to detect the area of concern, mapping the focal region including target depth. The PiezoWave Extracorporeal Focused Shockwaves are generated outside the body and then delivered to the focused target area deep inside the body.
The PiezoWave focused shockwaves reach their peak pressure precisely on the target tissue. This mechanical stimulus known as mechanotransduction induces biochemical changes in living tissue which, on a molecular level affects gene expression and can promote cell growth, protein synthesis, release of growth factors, stimulation of stem cells and lubricin production. This can also exert an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial effect whilst promoting microcirculation and metabolic activity.
