Injuries can have a serious impact on lifestyle and health, which means that physical rehabilitation is an essential step toward recovery. However, physical rehabilitation is a difficult and often painful process for most people, especially when it comes to orthopedic therapy. Shockwave therapy is an increasingly popular and helpful option that orthopedic specialists, sports medicine...

What is Stemwave Therapy? Stemwave therapy is a commonly used term that can be synonymous with the term extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT or shock wave therapy). Specifically, stemwave therapy is a term commonly used by providers that offer shockwave therapy using the SoftWaveTRT OrthoGold 100.  The term stemwave therapy originated in 2017 when Dr....

Shock waves are defined as types of acoustic pressure waves that develop during sudden releases of energy. The best-known natural phenomenon is thunder following lightning. Another example is the “bang” an aircraft produces when it breaks the sound barrier. Both focused shock waves and unfocused sound waves are produced in these examples. Additionally, almost all...

We tested the hypothesis that extracorporeal shock wave (ECSW) therapy can effectivelyprotect sciatic nerve (SN) from diabetes mellitus (DM)-induced neuropathy in leptin-deficient (ob/ob) mice. Methodsand results: Eighteen-week C57BL/6 mice (n=8) served as age-matched controls (group 1) and ob/ob mice (n=16)were categorized into DM (group 2) and DM + ECSW (0.12 mJ/mm2for 4 times of 200...

The gold standard for peripheral nerve regeneration uses a sensory autograft to bridge a motor/sensory defect site. For motor nerves to regenerate, Schwann cells(SC) myelinate the newly grown axon. Sensory SCs have a reduced ability to produce myelin, partially explaining low success rates of autografts. This issue is masked in pre-clinical research by the excessive...

(Alexandra Aicher, MD; Christopher Heeschen, MD; Ken-ichiro Sasaki, MD; Carmen Urbich, PhD; Andreas M. Zeiher, MD; Stefanie Dimmeler, PhD) – Stem and progenitor cell therapy is a novel approach to improve neovascularization and function of ischemic tissue. Enhanced tissue expression of chemoattractant factors such as stromal cell–derived factor 1 and vascular endothelial growth factor is crucial...

(Johannes Holfeld, Can Tepeköylü, Radoslaw Kozaryn, Anja Urbschat, Kai Zacharowski, Michael Grimm, and Patrick Paulus) – Shock wave therapy (SWT) reportedly improves ventricular function in ischemic heart failure. Angiogenesis and inflammation modulatory effects were described. However, the mechanism remains largely unknown. We hypothesized that SWT modulates inflammation via toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) through the release of...

(Swiss Paraplegic Centre Nottwil) – Spasticity is the most problematic self-reported secondary medical problem in patients with spinal cord injury. It has the potential to negatively influence quality of life through restricting activities of daily living. Problematic spasticity can cause pain and fatigue, disturb sleep, contribute to the development of contractures and pressure ulcers, and has a...
