SHOCKWAVE THERAPY is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
HOW DOES SHOCKWAVE THERAPY WORK?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgery pain from many common conditions. Shockwave treatment uses pressure waves focused on the site of the pain or injury to stimulate the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, “jump-starting” the healing process. It may also help to heal damaged tissue.
Generally 3-6 treatments are performed on a weekly basis for musculoskeleton concerns, and each one takes approximately 10-30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the amount of inflammation present.
