Shockwave Therapy Benefits:
We know shockwave therapy is effective – but how exactly does it work?
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
Shockwave therapy is the most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.
In 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.
Shockwave therapy was initially introduced as a way to break down kidney stones without direct contact.
It then evolved to treat non-healing bones by activating osteoblasts.
Today it treats a wide range of medical conditions, including:

A shockwave is an intense, but very short, energy wave travelling faster than the speed of sound. Because it is so powerful, most patients who undergo shockwave treatment recover faster than those treated by other methods.
Shockwave therapy sessions are usually 5 minutes long and provide successful relief and restore mobility painlessly. Relief typically begins about immediately following the treatment. Most patients require three treatments sessions. There is no downtime for recovery.
There are no shockwave therapy side effects. Treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, and joint pain.
