What is shockwave Therapy?
Shockwaves are acoustic waves that travel through the body at supersonic velocity. The physical force of Shockwave causes shedding of micro-vesicles from cell membranes without harming the cells.
These micro-vesicles contain nucleic acids as well as proteins and other molecules that activate neighbouring cells—initiating intrinsic healing and repair mechanisms.
These mechanisms include the release of angiogenic growth factors, which leads to to vessel sprouting (angiogenesis) and the activation of stem cells, which in turn causes new vessel formation (vasculogenesis). At the same time, an increase of the metabolic activity of cells, proliferation and a positive, modulating effect on inflammation can be observed.
Shockwave initiates communication with and among cells, activating an intrinsic repair program within the tissue. This revolutionary cellular communication is the key to Shockwave’s unique medical efficacy without any relevant side effects.
At the core of Shockwave technology is a high energy discharge that promotes regeneration at the cellular level to kickstart repair of tendons, bones and other soft tissues resulting in the activation of healing. Results vary depending on each individual, but success rates are high and many patients see immediate improvement.
Shockwave is a regenerative therapeutic technology unlike any other. Imagine what it can do for your practice—and for your clients.
Types of Shockwaves
The generation of radial pressure waves is generated by the collision of a projectile accelerated by compressed air or electromagnetic induction on an impact body (applicator). Most of the energy is transferred as a pressure wave into the adjacent medium. The wave propagates radially from the applicator, with the square of the distance the energy decreases.
In electromagnetic shockwave generation the shock wave is emitted by a flat coil or a cylindrical coil by electrical pulses. In the flat coil a membrane is deflected which compresses a medium (water). The pulse is focused by means of an acoustic lens. In the cylindrical coil the shock wave is focused by a reflector.
The oldest principle used in medicine is that in which the shockwaves are generated by a spark plug, the electro-hydraulic principle. The shock waves propagate in a medium (water) and are also focused in one place by a parabolic mirror.
The piezoelectric principle is based on a focusing of pressure waves, which is produced by the electrical activation of piezoelectric crystals. The piezoelectric crystals are mounted in a shell in such a way that the pressure waves of each crystal meet in a focus.

Online Shockwave Therapy Training Courses & Certification
Inertial technology applied to training allows the best eccentric training. But what is eccentric training and why is it so profitable? First, resistance training and generally every weightlifting exercise, involves two types of movements, concentric and eccentric. Concentric movement is when the muscle shortens while producing force (contracting the muscle). This happens when you are raising the weight during a biceps curl, for example. Eccentric movement is when the muscle lengthens while producing force. For example, when you are lowering the weight back down during a biceps curl. Both movements are said to lead to increased hypertrophy and muscle mass, however lots of studies have been made on benefits of eccentric training and evidence suggests that eccentric training promotes muscle mass more than concentric.
