Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that accelerates recovery from injured tissues. In addition to accelerating the healing process in the body, shockwaves stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation, which are biological effects leading to faster and long-term healing and regeneration of the tissue. Shockwave Therapy eliminates pain, restores full mobility, thus improving quality of life.
Shockwave Therapy is most commonly considered in response to chronic tendon / muscle injuries, especially those non-responsive to other treatments for more than 3-6 months.
