Focused Shockwave Therapy

What is Focus Shockwave Therapy?

Storz Medical’s focused shockwave therapy technology stands out for its exceptional application in various medical fields. These advanced systems have proven their effectiveness in diverse areas such as orthopedics, sports medicine, cardiology, neurology, urology, pelvic health, wound healing, and veterinary medicine.

STORZ MEDICAL is the trusted name in focused shockwave therapy devices for over 30 years, specializing in Orthopedics, men’s sexual health and dermatology. Focus Shockwave devices offers a wide range of treatment options, supported by numerous clinical papers, allowing clinics to enhance their healthcare services with the latest clinically proven technologies. With its advanced capabilities including increased treatment options, precise targeting, enhanced treatment depth, and improved patient comfort (especially in acute cases), focused shockwave therapy is rapidly becoming more in demand. This surge in popularity is attributed to the superior benefits of focused shockwave therapy, making it an increasingly preferred choice for various treatment applications.

Focused shockwaves distinguish themselves from radial devices by exhibiting a higher energy density and faster impulse. These characteristics enable focused shockwaves to precisely target deeper tissues, ensuring the delivery of energy directly within the tissue itself. Consequently, focused shockwave therapy is particularly effective in treating localized pain, chronic insertional tendinopathies, bone stress injuries, and deep trigger points. The ability to specifically target these areas allows for optimal therapeutic outcomes when utilizing focused shockwaves.

Harnessing Neovascularization for Enhanced Tissue Healing and Regeneration

Focused shockwave therapy promotes new blood vessel formation through a process called neovascularization. The high-energy shockwaves stimulate the release of growth factors and cytokines, which in turn attract endothelial progenitor cells and promote angiogenesis. This leads to the formation of new blood vessels, improving blood flow to the treated area and facilitating tissue healing and regeneration.

Substance P Reduction

Focused shockwave therapy has been found to decrease the concentration of substance P, a neurotransmitter involved in pain signaling. This reduction in substance P can contribute to pain relief by reducing the stimulation of pain fibers. The acoustic waves generated during shockwave therapy have demonstrated the ability to lower substance P levels, offering relief from pain.

Stimulation of Collagen Production

Shockwaves promote the production of collagen, a crucial protein involved in tissue structure and repair. Increased collagen production can enhance tissue strength and elasticity, making it beneficial for conditions like tendon and ligament injuries.

Clinical Indications

The high-energy acoustic waves interact with the tissue, leading to multiple simultaneous effects that contribute to accelerated tissue repair, cell growth, analgesia, and restoration of mobility. Focused shockwave therapy harnesses these effects to effectively treat a wide range of chronic, sub-acute, and acute conditions, including but not limited to:
