Dear Readers, 
2018 started at a very fast pace. The Olympic Games in Pyeongchang have already ended. The Swiss Olympic Delegation has asked EMS to support them with the Swiss DolorClast® Method. The objective is to continue with the treatment of a few tendinopathies but more importantly, for the intense effort required during the games and help with recovery after the competition. More to come in the next newsletter. 

For you, DolorClast® users who have been trained during a SDCA course, you can now be listed on the SDCA website to help you gain more visibility for your practice. Follow this link to be online.

Cavitation is important for successful shock wave treatment

Both the compression phase, causing shear stress on the tissue, and the tensile phase, generating cavitation, contribute to successful shock wave treatment.
