Shockwave therapy uses sound wave technology and mechanical energy in the form of acoustic waves that increases local circulation and stimulates the body's healing process. It is a safe and effective treatment. Most people experience relief after only a few treatments thus allowing them to readily return to work and/or sport.
Shockwave therapy is now being more extensively used in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Treatment is targeted on the damaged tissue through the hand-held applicator. When appropriately applied, shockwave can increase local blood flow, improve healing response, break apart scar tissue and adhesions, reduce muscle spasm, and directly decrease pain.
