Shockwave therapy is a device used in physiotherapy for the purpose of fast pain relief, tissue repair and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various conditions causing acute or chronic pain.
Shockwave is a high-frequency acoustic wave which carries high energy to the painful spots in musculoskeletal tissues with acute, subacute, and chronic conditions. The energy promotes the physiological healing process of the body by eliciting a controlled inflammatory reaction. Shockwave therapy has been proven to have 75%-95% success rate in treating the musculoskeletal conditions that other treatments have failed. This non-surgical procedure has no side effects and is covered by most insurance companies.
