Dr. Lohse Bush Studies ShockWave’s Effects on Nerve Repair


A study conducted by Dr. Lohse Bush evaluated the effectiveness of Shockwave treatment (ST) on a rat’s sciatic nerve repair. The results of the study showed that SoftWave therapy immediately after the surgery was effective in improving functional recovery.

The reason behind this improvement may be due to increased neural angiogenesis, which is the formation of new blood vessels in the nervous tissue. There was also a decrease in neural collagenisation, which refers to the process of excess scar tissue formation around the injury site. Additionally, ST led to improved axonal sprouting, which is the process of new nerve fibers growing from existing ones.
