What is Shockwave Therapy?
What is Shockwave?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating a series of low energy acoustic wave pulsations that are directly applied to an injury through a person’s skin via a gel medium.
How does it work?
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating 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.
What conditions does it treat?
Jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis)
Treatment of tendinopathy
Hamstring muscle injuries
Myofascial trigger points
Stiff big toe (hallux rigidus)
Calcific tendonitis of the rotator cuff
Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
Broken bones that have failed to heal (nonunions)
Enhancing bone healing
Muscle and connective tissue injuries
