Shock wave therapy
A new treatment method, radial shock wave therapy, can provide relief for muscle and movement pain.
Muscle and movement pain are the most common disease.
How do shock waves work?
Shock waves are acoustic pressure waves of extremely short duration. They penetrate skin, muscle or fat without causing damage. They activate the body's self-healing powers and thus accelerate the healing process.
The production of growth factors is activated, new blood vessels grow in and new tissue is formed. By stimulating the metabolism and increasing blood flow, damaged tissue regenerates and eventually heals.
Radial shock wave therapy can be used both for pain therapy and for cosmetic treatment.

What diseases does the shock wave help with?
Pathological changes in tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be systematically healed with this innovative therapy.
- Shoulder problems (e.g. due to calcification or overload) Tennis and golfer's elbow
- Tendon pain (e.g. in the Achilles tendon)
- Neck, shoulder or back pain
- Osteoarthritis in all joints
- Heel spur
- Acute or chronic muscle pain
Stretch marks are visible phenomena in the subcutaneous tissue caused by strong stretching of the tissue.
The connective tissue, which is responsible for the elasticity of the skin, consists of a network of collagen fibers. If the connective tissue is overstretched, this leads to tears in the subcutaneous tissue, which lead to externally visible blue-red stripes. The streaks fade over time, but remain visible as light-colored scars.
The coloring is caused by translucent blood vessels. The stripes tend to appear on particularly heavily stressed tissues such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper arms and breasts. Risk factors are weak connective tissue and excessive weight gain. In addition, the elasticity of the skin is reduced during pregnancy due to hormonal influences.
Cellulite (also known as orange peel skin) is a dent formation in the skin that can mainly occur in the thighs, upper arms, hips and buttocks. It occurs almost exclusively in women because men have a different connective tissue structure. Cellulite can already occur in young adults if they are overweight and/or have weak connective tissue. 80 to 90 percent of all women get it to varying degrees as they get older.
Shock wave in cellulite
The effect of the radial shock wave for the treatment of scars, cellulite and stretch marks is unique to date. To date, there is no other therapy that has shown such promising results. By stimulating the metabolism and the increased blood circulation, the affected skin regions regenerate and new tissue is formed. Discolouration in the scar area in particular (often with stretch marks) usually fades after just one or two treatments.
