How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. 

An acoustic pressure wave is transmitted to the body tissue and, consequently, to the painful area. The pressure wave created at the point of contact transmits radially inside the patient's body.

Good to Know...

  • Treatment is experienced differently by each patient.

  • Pain points are located in two ways: by accurate history-taking and palpation, and by localizing these points by means of pressure waves and patient feedback.

  • The analgesic effect usually wears off some hours after treatment.

  • Temporary worsening of pain may occur on the day after treatment; though this should not give cause for concern, however, and is not a sign of deterioration.

  • Normally, 3-6 sessions are required at an interval of 5-10 days.

  • Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Copsulitis)

  • Broken Bones that have failed to heal (non-unions)

  • Shoulder Pain

  • Tennis Elbow

  • Heel Spurs
