Shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive, out-patient alternative to surgery for those suffering from many joint and tendon disorders. A shockwave is a high powered sound wave. Shockwave therapy leads to faster healing, a chemically induced decrease in pain and sensitivity of pain receptors, and often a return to pre-injury activity levels. Shockwave therapy is effective because it combines your body’s ability to heal and release natural pain killers with modern technology to manipulate the body’s natural defences.
Everyone with soft tissue injuries can benefit, especially athletes. Shockwave Therapy provides a safe, non-surgical alternative for those suffering from everything from plantar fasciitis to joint pain and injury, headaches, fibromyalgia, and chronic muscle tension (hardly an exhaustive list, but you get the point - the machine is pretty close to magic!)
