I hope that you all had some quality time out with the family and now recharged. Im not sure that if your like me after time out its difficult and harder to get going following the New Years break, but it takes decisions, start strong and plan for a better year.
With respect to Shockwave the end of the year presented with some nice papers on the upper and lowerlimbs, my new website www.shockwave-therapy.co.uk was launched and indeed this blog. By the way appreciate those kind works on the efforts and looking forward to sharing continued studies and posts with you all.
Also one very exciting postive move is that been asked to get involved Knee studies using Focused and Radial. Not cleared yet but think O/A and P/T chronic tendinopathies, without question will let you know how I get on.
One area that gave me much pleasure in receiving was the latest info from EMS regarding PEDro which is a free database of over 29,000 randomized trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines provided by the George Institute for Global Health in Sydney.
Hers the link http://shockwave-therapy.co.uk/peer-reviews/
30/45 of the randomized controlled trials (RCTs)2 on rESWT listed in the PEDro database3, 4 were performed with the Swiss DolorClast®
> In 80% of these studies, the Swiss DolorClast® resulted in better clinical outcome than the control group
> In the remaining 20% of these studies either not enough energy was applied5 or patients with indications not approved for the Swiss DolorClast® were included
So if your a clinican and looking to get into shockwave therapy then this should speak volumes.
Heres to a great year, Happy Shockwaving just like the Pro Body Builder below who really enjoys Shockwave ( as if,) just likes the results !
