SW8 Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a new treatment modality,although it has appeared in the eighty's of last century,But after nearly 30 years of improvement,extracorporeal shock wave therapy equipment has been an unprecedented improvement.
Apply features of SW8 shock wave therapy, frequency 1-16Hz, enable to reach to 8cm subcutaneously, to apply on Periosteal and create heat,instant temperature reach to 43℃,at the same time,improve blood circulation.
Imagine the red is the area of energy that will create damage. This area goes from the bottom of the shock to the top as a column damaging everything in it's way. SW8 extracorporeal shock wave around this column is an area of less energy, seen in green, which would be of a dosage able to create healing. There would also be an area, shown in blue, of much less energy able to decrease pain. There is also an area where the wave force would decrease above the area of damage (the energy can't continue forever) which in turn would have healing or pain relieving effects. It needs to be remembered that the effects happen at high to low energy levels i.e. high levels = damage + healing + pain relief. Middle levels = healing + pain relief.
Increasing frequency affects the depth of wave penetration (as lower frequency waves travel further than higher frequency waves). As can be seen below high frequency waves travel less distance (below are depictions of different wave frequencies on a gold film).
Painful irritation of the achilles tendon

Q:How Long Does Treatment Last?
The therapy session takes about 15 minutes depending on the disorder that is treated. In general, 3-5 sessions are necessary at weekly intervals. The greatest success rate when dealing with problem areas is achieved by following a 12 week treatment program.
After only 3 sessions, over 80% of patients report painlessness or significant pain reduction. This pain reduction/elimination leads to restoration of full mobility and thus improving quality of life. Repeated treatments may enhance efficacy.
• 90% improvement for plantar fasciitis (Journal of Orthopaedics Research 2005)
• 91% improvement for calcific tendonitis (Journal of American Medical Association 2003)
• 77% improvement for tennis elbow (Journal of Orthopaedics 2005)
Q:Are all shockwave machines equal ?
Absolutely not. There are several machines currently marketed as shockwave machines that do not generate a true shockwave. They generate what is called a ballistic or radial wave. The physics of this type of wave are completely different from that of a true shockwave. A ballistic or radial wave is created when a projectile is rapidly accelerated by compressed air – it looks like a small jackhammer. The problem with this type of wave is that all of the energy is deposited at the skin, and the energy drops off rapidly as you move away from the skin. The result being that unless the injury is at the skin, the injured area is not receiving the necessary energy to help the healing process. Additionally, since the wave is not focused with this type of machine, the entire area around the treatment site is receiving the wave, which can potentially have harmful effects.
Q:What signs indicate this therapy is needed?
Shock wave therapy may treat conditions such as degenerated tendons (Achilles tendonitis), heel pain (plantar fasciitis) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
