WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive, out-patient alternative to surgery for those suffering from many joint and tendon disorders. Shock waves are produced by a pneumatic pulse that creates a ballistic movement. This wave is transmitted to the tissue on contact breaking up the scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. This mechanism allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. . The resulting "revascularization" leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity levels.
