Opaf Therapy

OPAF THERAPY

OPAF Therapy makes use of sound vibrations at very high frequencies that are not perceptible to the human ear. This treatment generates pressure waves at high frequency and high power for an in depth focused action: the irradiation produces a mechanical pulsating effect (focused action) and a thermal effect (heat) which, together, facilitate and enhance cellular and intracellular exchanges.

OPAF Therapy acts on both superficial and deep subcutaneous tissues with a focused action producing anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects. The treatment is mainly used to solve bone, muscle, joint and tendon problems, it accelerates the healing process in traumatic events and it relieves chronic problems.
