Percussive ultrasound is a means of rehabilitation, which successfully treats chronic musculoskeletal diseases, which do not respond to the classic methods of rehabilitation. Percussive ultrasounds were used for the first time in urology and specifically in the method of extracorporeal lithotripsy, with excellent results. Percussive ultrasound is a method of treatment that delivers shock waves to specific tissues in the body.  body,  resulting in increased blood flow and metabolism in the affected area. The mode of action of shock waves is the transformation of a chronic inflammatory process such as tendonitis, into acute where the body is able to heal.

Shock waves activate the body's self-healing processes by disorganizing, for example, the calcifications in the tendons,  thus stimulating the regenerative capacity of cells, which as a final benefit has the increase of  engineers  tissue properties and reduce pain. The percussions  waves have the advantage of relieving pain immediately and not appearing  side effects (if properly applied). The treatment has a short duration of about 10 minutes.

The diseases that we usually apply percussive ultrasound are:

  • Calcium shoulder tendonitis

  • Shoulder tendonitis

  • Epicondylitis (tennis - golfers' elbow)

  • Trochanteritis

  • Knee tendonitis

  • Posterior femoral tendonitis (goose foot)

  • Anterior-posterior tibial syndrome (shin splint)

  • Tendonitis of the Achilles tendon

  • Heel spurs

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Painful muscle spasms (trigger points)
