Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, which can alleviate pain, promote tissue regeneration, and reduce inflammation.
This therapy is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including musculoskeletal (bone and joint) problems such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and Achilles tendonitis, as well as non-healing bone fractures and chronic wounds.
The treatment works by using a device that generates high-energy sound waves, which are then transmitted through the skin to the affected area. The sound waves create a mechanical pressure on the tissues, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process. This process promotes the growth of new blood vessels, which helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, as well as the production of new tissue cells.
