What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy

Fast relief from chronic pain

Non invasive Treatment for tendons:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles’ tendinopathy
  • Frozen shoulder
  • And much more (see below)

Extracorporeal Radial Shockwave Therapy sends a series of high-energy impulses to the affected area.  This produces an inflammatory response. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain which stimulates and accelerates the healing process.

What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process. There is an immediate reduction of pain and improved ease of movement. Secondary effects are minor. Shockwave therapy may also reduce the chance of further surgery.
