Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment. It involves a series of low energy sound waves that are applied directly to a persons skin over the area of pain. Gel is used between the skin and the shockwave applicator.

Shockwave is used to decrease pain. It can be used on both acute (recent) and on chronic (longstanding) musculoskeletal pain. In addition to decreasing pain, it can also increase mobility. The acoustic waves trigger a biological response that leads to faster, long-term healing by stimulating tissue regeneration.
