What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy is a method of therapy that uses a device to send acoustic waves of high energy pulses into an injury affected area on a person’s body. The device works by creating a microtrauma to the affected area, thus stimulating blood flow and thereby promoting tissue healing. In chronic pain, these Shockwaves create a new inflammatory process, which then kick starts the brain to react by sending the necessary nutrients to promote healing.
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy include:
- Fast pain relief
