Shockwave therapy is a unique, non-invasive solution for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy is frequently used in physiotherapy, Orthopaedics and sports medicine.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and musculoskeletal tissues, with sub-acute, sub-chronic and chronic pain. The energy promotes regenerating and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Applications are mostly associated with the treatment of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back and cervical pain. During therapy, a high acoustic wave interacts with the tissues of the body; this leads to numerous beneficial effects including neovascularization ingrowth, a reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up. Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved.
