What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy is an effective treatment for bone problems and chronic pain caused by soft tissue injuries. It’s a non-evasive treatment where non-electrical high-energy sound waves are passed through the patient’s body using a treatment tool known as extracorporeal shockwave.
During the treatment, the blood supply rapidly increases due to the shockwaves, and it breaks down the fibrous scar tissue built over time due to chronic pain or illnesses. Shockwave therapy also promotes cell growth as it increases blood circulation and breaks down the scar tissue, allowing the affected area to heal normally. It also provides pain relief during the restoration of the muscles and tissues.
