What is Shockwave Treatment?
Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical treatment of soft tissue, bone, and joint pain. The practitioner applies a conductive gel on the area and moves the hand piece in a circular motion over the treatment area.
How it works:
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) sends high-energy mechanical pulses to the treatment area.
These high-energy mechanical pulses stimulate the breakdown of scar tissue and fibroblasts in the targeted area thus improving blood circulation in the area
These pulses also initiate metabolic activity and an inflammatory response that promotes and stimulates healing.
