Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy is a type of therapy that involves the use of a device to deliver acoustic waves with high energy pulses to an injured area. By inflicting microtrauma on the affected area, the device stimulates blood flow, which in turn promotes the healing of the tissues. If you are suffering from chronic pain, these shocks can trigger a new inflammatory process, which then causes the brain to react by sending the necessary nutrients to aid in the recovery process.
