Radial Shockwave Therapy Reaching Greater Depths

The Swiss Dolorclast Power Handle Has Arrived At Sydney Physio Clinic

Sydney Physio Clinic is happy to announce that we now have the Swiss Dolorclast Power handpiece available at the practice. This new radial shockwave therapy power handpiece is perfect for the treatment of complaints requiring higher energy and target tissues at greater depths than can be achieved through regular shockwave therapy.

Effective Radial Shockwave Therapy Treatment At No Extra Cost

At Sydney Physio Clinic there is no additional surcharge for shockwave therapy sessions and a treatment session using our new Swiss Dolorclast Power handpiece is no different. Most practices  charge an additional fee for any shockwave treatment but at Sydney Physio Clinic we see shockwave therapy as another string to our bow and comes in under the general blanket of physiotherapy.  For patients booking in a shockwave therapy session at the practice with one of our physiotherapists, the session with begin with the physio looking to obtaining information and understand the condition and its history through discussion and physical assessment. All in an attempt to understand if shockwave therapy is an appropriate course of action, if indicated then the therapy can be be performed as part of this initial session with no additional charge, unlike the majority of practices offering shockwave treatment. Because shockwave therapy falls under the blanket of physiotherapy people can use their private health fund if they have physio cover and access a rebate on the treatment as they would for any physiotherapy session.

How Does The Swiss Dolorclast Power Handle Work?

Shockwave therapy uses a precisely controlled compressed air pulse to drive a projectile in the handpiece, this projectile is accelerated to high speed and as it strikes the applicator in the handpiece, it generates low to high-energy pressure waves to be transmitted to the designated treatment area. The Swiss Dolorclast Power handpiece helps to extend the range of radial shockwave treatment application through higher energy and greater depth of penetration. This is all achieved through a modified design, increase size of projectile and increased projectile travel distance, as well as new applicators accounting for higher energy flux density.

Benefits Of Using The Dolorclast Shockwave Therapy Power Handpiece

The new ESWT power handpiece at Sydney Physio Clinic as a number of benefits over the Evo handle and significant benefits over a number of competitor units:
  • Offers an expanded range of applications with the addition of five different applicators. This applications suit a variety of indications, from assisting in improved management when treating tricky insertional tendon complaints, to more easily assisting in the management of larger surface area issues.
  • Generates a range from low and high-energy shockwaves (with a range of 0.01 – 0.55 mJ/mm2)
  • Optimizes penetration depth of treatment, targeting tissues at a greater depth that previous handles or competitor shockwave units.
