This non-invasive treatment uses high powered sound waves to treat muscle and
tendon issues. It does this by breaking down scar tissues, decreasing pain sensitivity, promoting blood vessel growth, and stimulating inflammation in the area which promotes the body’s natural healing process.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave is a non-invasive solution that accelerates the recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain. There are no side-effects and it is available at a reasonable cost.
Shockwaves are audible high-energy sound waves. They occur in the atmosphere when lightning strikes or an airplane breaks through a sound barrier. In medicine, shockwave therapy has been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones.
