Shockwave is a modern, non-invasive treatment used for multiple musculoskeletal conditions, specifically pertaining to bone, tendon and ligaments. Treatment involves multiple short duration, bursts of high-energy pulses that are transmitted deep into injured tissues.
These high intensity pulses of mechanical energy aggravate the injured tissues at a cellular level, which stimulates a pro-inflammatory healing response.
The force transmitted by radial shockwaves has been shown to be extremely effective in the breakdown of calcium deposits and scar tissue. Decomposition of these can lead to drastically increased function and mobility, and usually provides an immediate relief from pain in 1 to 4 treatments.
