Treatments we offer


Shock-wave therapy

What is shock-wave therapy?

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is an innovative method to treat pain. Shockwaves are high-energy, audible acoustic waves, which are transferred to the affected region in the body. This activates the metabolism, increases blood flow and stimulates the healing process. 

Studies have shown that with the help of shock-wave therapy, certain painful changes in tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones can be eradicated, including the following conditions:

  • Periarticular shoulder pain
  • Chronic neck and shoulder pain
  • Calcific tendinitis of the shoulder
  • Epicondylitis (tennis- or golfer’s elbow)
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Runner’s knee
  • Plantar fasciitis / heel spur

Duration of treatment

The duration of treatment takes between 5 to 10 minutes and on average 3 to 5 sessions are necessary, with 1-week intervals between sessions. Normally, a reduction in pain is already noticeable after only 1-2 sessions.

Ultrasound-guided injection

Ultrasound-guided injections enable the exact injection of anti-inflammatory medicine and substances to the desired location without any radiation exposure. Ultrasound-guided injections are therefore a non-radiation alternative to conventional techniques (x-ray, CT) and can be carried out in the practice with ease.

Scope of application of ultrasound-guided injections

  • Neck, back and lower-back pain
  • Painful small and large joints (eg. hip, knee, ankle)


What is ACP own-blood therapy?

ACP is short for Autologous Conditioned Plasma. It is a form of own-blood therapy in which approximately 15ml of blood is taken from a vein in the arm. Next, the blood is prepared in a special centrifuge where the enriched plasma (platelets, growth factors, stem cells) is extracted. This enriched plasma is injected directly into the affected region.

Duration of treatment

Each treatment takes around 15-30 minutes. After the injection, normal daily-life activities are allowed. For optimal results, 3 to 5 treatments are recommended, with 1-week intervals.

Scope of application

ACP can be used in a variety of musculoskeletal conditions including tendon- and sports-injuries as well as joint wear by reducing pain and stimulating healing.


  • Tendon injuries, such as achilles tendon, rotator-cuff
  • Muscle fibre rupture


  • Arthritis
  • Joint cartilage damage
  • Epicondylitis (tennis- or golfer’s elbow)
  • Runner’s knee
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis / heel spur

This form of own-blood therapy is not classified as doping and can be used by both professional and hobby athletes without hesitation. The active agents of ACP are 100% biocompatible, since they originate from the own body.

Hyaluronic acid injections

Hyaluronic acid is an integral component of joint cartilage and joint fluid. The concentration of hyaluronic acid is less in worn joints compared to healthy joints. Injections with low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid (multiple injections) or high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid (single injection) lead to an increased uptake of hyaluronan into the joint cartilage, thereby increasing joint fluid function. As a secondary effect, hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory properties.

The effect lasts up to 6 – 12 months.

Scope of application

  • Arthritis – Joint cartilage damage
  • Bridging until joint replacement surgery

Joint injection therapy

Joint injections are typically used for pain or knee effusions, commonly seen in knee osteoarthritis. Cortisone and local anaesthetic are used as active agents. This combination has a powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect. Due to the side-effects, a long-term treatment is not recommended.

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Joint effusions
  • Pain treatment
  • Arthritis
  • Joint cartilage damage
