How Shockwave Therapy Works

Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Shockwave technology delivers strong energy pulses that are applied to the affected area for short periods of time. This stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. In many instances, shockwave therapy treatments, have proven to be effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

Shockwave therapy produces an acoustic pressure wave that is transmitted to the body’s tissue. The pressure wave created at the point of contact transmits radially inside the patient’s body.
