- Our Shockwave Machine… Our Shockwave therapy unit is the European made, Storz Masterpuls 200 (MP200), the most successful Shockwave therapy system available on the market today. MP200 can go all the way up to 21 hertz using the D-actor head (compared to a max of 11 hertz using the MP50), and this makes all the difference for treatment effectiveness and patient comfort. Up to 5 bars of application pressure, makes all the difference as our shockwave can not only effect those structures close to the surface but also get down into the deeper structures as well with enough acoustic pressure to treat hard to reach areas like ligaments and joint capsules of the shoulder or hip.
- To accomplish these frequencies and depths, the Storz MP200 Shockwave requires a separate air compressor, and this is why our unit is far superior to the built-in air compressor model units that many chiropractors and podiatrists are using.
Warning: Beware of clinics using Shockwave machines made by companies other than Storz, and using lower end models than our MP200. There are also clinics selling discount Shockwave therapy services, however these bargain basement Shockwave therapy machines made in often have potential for painful side effects, significant tissue damage, or simply do not work and have not been validated in clinical trials like the Storz MP200 has.
