BTL Shockwave therapy is a new non-invasive solution for musculoskeletal pain. Shockwave therapy is a diverse treatment that can treat a multitude of long-term aches, pains and skin conditions. The extracorporeal shockwave therapy is frequently used in physiotherapy, orthopaedics and sports medicine. Applications are mostly associated with treatment of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back and neck pain. Most common indications include: painful shoulder, epicondylitis (“tennis elbow”), lower back pain, achilles tendon pain, patellar tendonitis (“runners knee”) and trigger points such as heel pain.
The extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy (in contrast with lithotripsy) is not used to disintegrate tissue but rather to cause microscopic interstitial and extracellular biological effects which include e.g. tissue regeneration. Application of shock waves leads to significantly increased expression of growth indicators such as eNOS, VEGF, PCNA and BMP. Newly formed blood vessels improve blood supply and oxygenation, which leads to faster healing. Acoustic waves also cause mast cell activation, which supports chronic inflammation reversal. Other effects include stimulation of collagen production, calcified fibroblasts dissolution and dispersion of pain mediator, “substance P”.
