Miracle Wave™ definition
The Miracle Wave ™  is a cutting-edge treatment solution which utilizes sound waves (or acoustic pulses) to initiate a healing effect within the body.
Similar to the technology of Shock Wave Therapy, our innovative equipment utilizes the science of sound waves to help repair, restore & rejuvenate muscle tissue. Miracle Wave differs from ultrasound by its extremely large pressure amplitude.

Evolution of Miracle Wave™ therapy
Miracle waverefers to the mechanical pressure pulses that expand as a wave within the human body. In 1980, the shockwave method was used for the first time to disintegrate kidney stones in a patient (Journal of Urology, 1982). During the past two decades, this method has become the standard treatment of choice for renal and urethral calculi.

Shockwaves therapeutic effect
Extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy (in contrast to lithotripsy) is not used to disintegrate tissues, but rather cause microscopic intersticial and extracellular biological effects which include tissue regeneration. In modern pain therapy, acoustic wave energy is conducted from the point of origin, which is the acoustic wave generator (via a coupling gel) to the body regions experiencing pain. There, its healing capacity is applied.

Clinical indications
Over time, acoustic waves have proven to be an effective and non-invasive method for the treatment of localized musculoskeletal pathology including: epicondylitis, heel spur and plantar fascitis, rotator cuff disorders, trigger points, variety of chronic tendinopathies and many other indications.
Miracle Wave™ therapy is most frequently used in physiotherapy, orthopaedics and sports medicine.

Applications in physiotherapy are mostly associated with the treatment of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back and cervical pain and trigger points treatment. Compared to conventional manual and instrumental therapy, MWT is extremelly effective, shortens the treatment period and brings better results in long time follow-up. Most common indications include:
  • painful shoulder
  • epicondylitis
  • low back pain
  • achilles tendon pain
  • patellar tendonitis
  • trigger points treatment

Orthopaedical applications  concentrate on the  treatment of calcifications, painful exostoses, various tendonitis and impaired fracture healing. SW therapy brings alternative in many cases when surgical solution seems to be inevitable. Main diagnoses are:
  • frozen shoulder 
  • periarthritis humeroscapularis 
  • calcar calcanei/ heel spur 
  • arthrotic changes - secondary symptoms 
  • achillodynia
  • lateral & ulnar epicondylitis

MWT is very often applied in sports medicine for its soft tissue healing and regenerative effect. Thus the recovery time after injuries can be maximally reduced. Common indications are:
  • muscular distension
  • prolonged joint distorsion treatment
  • groin pain
  • hip pain
  • low-back pain
  • achillodynia

The best part? There are little to no side effects and there’s no downtime, which means patients are able to resume their daily activities as soon as possible.
