Shockwave therapy is a series of energetic shockwaves applied to the area that needs treatment. A shockwave is a purely mechanical wave, not an electric one. The treatment initiates an inflammation-like condition (pro-flamatory) in the tissue that is being treated.
The body responds by increasing the blood circulation and metabolism in the impact area which in turn accelerates the body's own healing process. The shockwaves break down injured tissue and calcifications.
Shockwave therapy offers two main advantages over traditional surgical methods: fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity.
