Belongs in an Alfred Hitchcock movie doesn’t it?
“Dolores” our affectionately named machine is definitely not so archaic or frightful. Shockwave therapy has been around for 25 years but it’s only been the last 5 years since research has validated the amazing results it can produce, and Doloarclast Radial Shockwave Therapy (DRSWT) is at the cutting edge of the technology.
Dolores may be helpful for a range of orthopaedic (calcification, arthritis in joints of arms and legs) and soft tissue injuries (such as tennis elbow, Achilles tendinopathy, shoulder tendinopathy, bursitis) and not only is it used by several AFL teams it’s the official shockwave treatment for the Olympic games!
Dolores uses high energy shockwaves to activate the healing process at the site where you’re experiencing pain to increase blood flow and oxygenation to promote healing and cellular regeneration.
This non-invasive treatment takes 3-4 minutes and only requires 3 to 5 sessions within a 5 week period, but you should feel a decrease in pain during your first appointment! Research shows that chronic conditions improve in 77% of cases!
The best proven results are in conjunction with manual therapy, so continuing with massage or osteopathy in conjunction with Dolores may give you the best chance at overcoming your injury.
With minimal side-effects, Dolores may be able to start you on the road to being pain-free!
