Shockwave therapy

Shock waves are high-energy sound waves that can be generated in the atmosphere by natural phenomena such as lightning strikes or the breaking of a sound barrier by an aircraft. They began to be used in medicine in the 1980s, as a physical treatment method belonging to the group of mechano-therapies. This therapy uses high-energy acoustic pressure waves to induce healing and regenerative processes in the affected tissue. According to the system used to generate the shock wave, it is divided into radial RSWT and focused ESWT and PSWT.

Our workplace is equipped with equipment from the STORZ MEDICAL brand, which is currently the absolute leader on the world market. It is a combined shock wave with wide application and considerable success rate in treatment, and thus we are able to guarantee you the best results.

STORZ MEDICAL AG was founded in 1987 in Tägerwilen as a member of the Swiss STORZ Group. It is the world's leading manufacturer of shock wave generating equipment. Millions of patients around the world have undergone shockwave therapy from STORZ MEDICAL. The technically advanced devices bring new standards to orthopaedics, rehabilitation, aesthetic medicine, dermatology, cardiology and veterinary medicine.

Radial shockwave therapy


A radial shockwave therapy is physically a pressure wave. The energy transfer is provided by a pneumatically accelerated projectile in a tube, which impinges on the application attachment and transfers the energy to the tissue.

Focused shockwave therapy


A focused shockwave therapy is a type of shock wave that is generated by a special device. STORZ MEDICAL uses a patented electromagnetic cylindrical generator for its production, which is able to generate energy stably throughout its lifetime. This method of focused wave generation is considered to be very efficient and effective.

It serves to:

  • Achilles tendon pain
  • patellar tendinopathy (pain in the lower kneecap, jumper's knee)
  • tibial edge syndrome
  • muscle and connective tissue activation
  • shock wave acupuncture
  • muscle trigger points
  • radial or ulnar epicondylitis of the humerus (tennis elbow, javelin elbow)
  • extensive calcification of the shoulder (pain in the shoulder joint area)
  • calcaneal spur/plantar fasciitis
  • Pseudoarthrosis (and other knee joint pain)
  • polyneuropathy (reduced or complete loss of sensation)
  • post-traumatic spasms


"Hello, the leg is great, I do everything with it. The first application hurt a lot but on the third I almost fell asleep on the rehab bed. I've been playing sports full time and nothing hurts. Thank you so much for the care and all the recommendations." 

- František

"A great relief from pain. First I had two lasers and then a radial and focused shockwave therapy. I got up this morning and parted right away without much pain." 

- Linda

"Hello, the shockwave was great and I would ask for another booking." 

- Milan

"Hello, today I went for my first run after the shockwave therapy. I have to say that the problem that was stopping me from running and sprinting is gone. I can bend my leg at the ankle and there is no pain. Thank you so much, the shockwave therapy has put it away 🙏."


What health problems is shockwave good for?

Shockwave is effective in treating a wide range of diagnoses such as: heel spurs, tennis elbow, golf elbow, jumper's knee, arthritis, etc. It is generally useful for calcifications and tendon pain or injuries, but is also used to remove cellulite, wrinkles, stretch marks and in many other cases.

How long does one treatment last and how many treatments are needed?

The total duration of the shockwave therapy usually takes 20-30 minutes. The number of sessions required may vary depending on the specific health problem and its severity. While 3 to 7 sessions are generally recommended with weekly intervals between treatments. In our clinic, due to the use of a high quality device, often only 2 to 3 sessions are needed to achieve noticeable improvement.

Is shockwave therapy painful?

The treatment can be uncomfortable, but most clients tolerate it well. The feelings during the treatment depend on the type of shockwaves and the area being treated. During the treatment, the therapist is in constant contact with you, which allows effective control of the intensity of the treatment.

What is the difference between a focused and a radial shockwave?

The focused shockwave is concentrated deep into the body tissue (up to 12 cm), while the radial shockwave extends into the soft tissues and is effective on more superficial areas. By combining both of these types with the addition of the V-Actor, we achieve a greater effect with fewer applications.

Can I return to my normal activities immediately after the treatment?

Yes, you can usually resume your normal daily activities after treatment. However, we recommend taking a few days off from intense physical activity.

How quickly can I expect results?

Most clients feel relief after the first or second treatment. Overall results may vary depending on the individual body's response.
