- Dr Karin Freitag, founder and clinical director at Clínica DKF
Dr Karin Freitag, founder and director of Clínica DKF, is a specialist in Rheumatic and Sports Medicine and a renowned expert in Shockwave and Regenerative Medicine & Cell Therapy. Her pioneering research on non-invasive treatments for orthopaedic applications has contributed to the understanding of the biological effect of shockwave therapy, leading her to discover the groundbreaking Neurolith method, which involves transcranial stimulation with shock waves in the field of neurology, particularly for cognitive diseases.
To enable cutting-edge research into helping patients living with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, Clínica DKF built their own state-of-the-art shockwave therapy lab equipped with the latest modern medical devices. They also invested in their own Investigator Initiated Trial to provide evidence that this therapy can slow down Alzheimer's progression and help patients' memory. Dr Karin Freitag will reveal and discuss this groundbreaking work during an upcoming prestigious congress in Korea.
