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.
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.
