Each day chronic pain affects the quality of life - A painful heel for example, makes every step more challenging than it is. It affects performance on the job and your favourite game. With Swiss DolorClast® EWST and RSWT, activate your healing process to renew yourself.
Pain areas requiring treatment
Scientifically, what happens to the tissues treated with this Swiss DolorClast® method?
- HYPERSTIMULATION OF NERVE FIBERS
Reduction in sensation of chronic pain (mediated by non-myelinated C nerve fibers) Scientific studies show that shockwaves, and the overstimulating of small non-myelinated type C nerve fiblers, block an increase in pain stimili and thus intensify the analgesic effect (Melzak and Wall, Gate Control Theory)
- RELEASE OF SUBSTANCE P
Immediate pain relief by depletion of substance P
Substance P plays a central role as a pain-mediator and growth factor.
Shockwaves lead to increased release of substance P and a blockade of neurogenic inflammation.
This molecular mechanism explains the long lasting analgesic effect of shockwaves.
Substance P has been shown to dilate blood vessels, stimulate neovascularization and contribute to new bone formation.
NEOVASCULARIZATION – ENOS, VEGF, PCNA
RELEASE OF GROWTH FACTORS
Shockwaves stimulate the early expression of angiogenesis related growth factors including: eNOS (endothelial nitric oxide synthase), VEGF (vessel endothelial growth factor) and PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen).
IMPROVED BLOOD CIRCULATION IN TREATED AREAS
This promotes neovascularisation that improves blood supply and increases cell proliferation and tissue regeneration to repair tendon or bone tissues.
ACTIVATES CELLULAR MECHANISMS
Shockwaves Activate mesenchymal stem cells (such as osteoblasts), thereby induction of healing
Shockwaves contribute to the release of Histamine from Mast Cells which is part of the body’s endogenous cellular defense mechanisms
