Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to treat various conditions, such as chronic pain, musculoskeletal disorders, and some soft tissue injuries. The therapy works by delivering shockwaves to the affected area, which stimulates the body's natural healing process and helps to reduce pain and improve mobility.
How it works: The shockwaves are created by a special device that delivers the high-energy waves through the skin and into the underlying tissue. These waves cause microtrauma to the tissue, which triggers a healing response. This response helps to increase blood flow to the affected area, promote tissue regeneration, and reduce pain and inflammation.
Conditions treated: Some of the most common conditions treated with shockwave therapy include:
Quick and easy procedure
No need for anesthesia or pain medication
Safe and effective
