What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that brings patients back to health sooner.
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate the damaged tissue.
Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area for short period of time, creating microcavitation bubbles that expand and bursts. The force created by these bubbles stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
Shockwave Therapy, an acoustic pressure wave is transmitted to the body tissue and, consequently, to the painful area. The pressure wave created at the point of contact transmits radially inside the patient’s body.
