SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Services

The shockwave treatment is a safe and noninvasive therapy. It is indicated in many diseases of the musculoskeletal system, such as chronic tendinopathies, calcifications, plantar fasciitis (with or without spur), epicondilopathies, pain syndromes, pseudo-osteoarthritis, bone fractures with delayed bony healing... among others.

The shock waves are mechanical stimuli that produce pressure changes in tissues and, through a physiological principle called “mechano-transduction”, they trigger various biological responses:

  • A regeneration of tissues by stimulating the production of collagen, an increase of blood stream and a reversion of chronic inflammation. .
  • An analgesic effect, an increase of mobility and joint function.

Its effectiveness can avoid surgery and the risk that they entail, allowing an earlier recovery.

Shock waves can be generated from various technologies. In our center we have 4 state of the art equipment (focal and radial).

Antonio Morral is a pioneer (1999) in implementing radial shockwaves in tendon pathologies, he is a founding member and president of the Scientific Committee of the

Spanish Shockwave Therapies Society (SETOC), member of the International Society for Medical Shockwave Treatment (ISMST) and Regional Vice President of the Iberoamerican Federation of Shockwave Societies in Europe (ONLAT).
