Save your hands! If you’re a medical practitioner that uses vibration therapy in your practice, then you know how paralyzing using it for too long can be — pain, tingling, numbness, and more. There’s a term for that: white finger syndrome.
Shockwave therapy is no stranger to white finger syndrome. Because of the vibrations involved with treatment, some shockwave devices can only be operated safely for a limited amount of time.
However, with the right shockwave therapy machine for your practice, you can find a solution. Did you know that different shockwave manufacturers have different operational limits?
A shockwave device with a longer limit will allow you to see more patients without sacrificing your health, in turn increasing your revenue potential.
You need to know the difference to get your time and your hands back.
Comparing Shockwave Therapy Machines
Storz Medical Shockwave Therapy Machine
With Storz technology, practitioners don’t have to worry about shockwave therapy side effects for patients or practitioners. Storz has put extensive time and effort into research and development, which many comparable manufacturers simply have not done.
Additionally, with Storz technology, most patients only require three treatment sessions of about four minutes each — so it is safer for both the practitioner and the patient.
Some of our clients working for professional sports teams use our devices all day long treating athletes with no side effects.
If you’re in this field, or looking to increase your time of use, a machine that limits white finger syndrome isn’t just a nice-to-have — it’s a must have.
