freeWave Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a high frequency medical device, non-invasive. It is an evidenced based innovative way to treat soft tissue and muskuloskeletal pain primarily applied to chronic conditions, often used in combination with laser therapy, particularly those affecting medium to large sized tendons such as:
Lateral Epicondylosis (Tennis Elbow)
Medial Epicondylosis (Golfer’s Elbow)
Calcific Tendonitis (supraspinatus tendon, etc.)
Patellar Tendinosis (Jumper’s Knee)
Chronic Stress/Non-union Fractures
Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of ESWT for the treatment of plantar fasciopathy. However, multiple high-quality randomized clinical trials around the wold have provided substantial evidence that ESWT is a safe and effective noninvasive option for treating tendinopathy throughout the musculoskeletal system.
Laser therapy is used extensively in Podiatry, Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy.
They deal daily with many different types of injuries, primarily those that affect the mobility and they need to help patients prevent and cure injuries and disorders in muscles, joints, the nervous system, and the circulatory system.
In these areas, laser can help accelerate the body’s own natural healing process up to 75%.
Podiatrists, Sports Medicine and Physical Therapists are using laser therapy for:
Treatment of acute injuries, quicker healing and pain relief
Treatment of chronic conditions, pain relief and postponement of symptoms
Treatment of repetitive strain injuries, various forms of inflammation
The treatment with bio-stimulating laser is often combined with other treatments such as manipulation, shockwave, ultrasound and guidance.
In our clinic we are using two different models of laser, PowerLaser Pro1500 that is wireless and portable and the GigaLaser for all large area treatments.
Our GigaLaser has the world's largest therapy area of 500cm2, is equipped with 36 Laser diodes, 144 Red and 144 Blue LED.
With only a touch, we adjust the GigaLaser to either inpidually or simultaneously emit one, two or three wavelengths of therapeutic light, maximizing results and reducing number of treatments.
