RSWT is an innovative non-surgical modality for reducing pain that has not responded to traditional therapies.  The Swiss DolorClast method delivers pneumatically generated pressure waves that travel through the skin.  As these pressure waves come into contact with inflamed tissue, they stimulate the body's natural healing process by improving cellular metabolism and enhancing blood circulation.  Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.
