Nutrient blood flow is necessary to start and maintain the repair process of damaged tissue. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary micro ruptures within the soft tissues stimulating the healing process.
Mast cells are one of the key components of the inflammatory process. Their activity is increased by using pervasive acoustic waves.
The production of a sufficient amount of collagen is necessary preconditioning for the repair process of damaged musculoskeletal and ligamentous structures. RSWT accelerates collagen production synthesis.
Calcium build-up is most often the result of micro-tears or other trauma to a tendon. Acoustic waves break up the existing calcifications.
Substance P is a neurotransmitter that mediates pain information through the C-fibres. This neuropeptide is generally associated with intense, persistent and chronic pain. RSWT disperses substance P and localises / eliminates pain reception.
Trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder and limbs. Delivered acoustic energy unlocks the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis in the myofilaments, releasing the trigger points.
