Shockwave Therapy Treatment
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing in the body. The therapy is typically administered by a healthcare professional, such as a physiotherapist, chiropractor, or sports medicine specialist.
During shockwave therapy, a handheld device is used to deliver acoustic waves to the affected area of the body. The waves can be focused on a specific point or dispersed over a larger area, depending on the type of injury being treated.
The acoustic waves generated during shockwave therapy produce a mechanical pressure that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This can help to increase blood flow, promote tissue regeneration, and reduce inflammation and pain.
Shockwave therapy is commonly used to treat musculoskeletal conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries. It can also be used to treat non-healing bone fractures and chronic pain conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome.
