Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a type of therapy which is effective in the treatment of soft tissue injuries.

A shockwave (sound wave) is passed through the body initiating a pro flamatory response in the tissues, which increases blood circulation and metabolism for that area. This initiates the bodys healing process whilst the shockwaves break down injured tissue and calcifications.

The success rate for this treatment is 77% for people with chronic conditions.

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is an effective way of treating soft tissue injuries through the use of shockwaves. Shockwaves are high-energy sound waves which are audible and can help the regeneration of damaged tissue when applied to the body.
