Shockwave therapy accelerates the body’s healing process 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 penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
Shockwave therapy was initially introduced as a way to break down kidney stones without direct contact.
Today it treats a wide variety of conditions including: plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy, and calcific tendinopathy.
