    Shockwave Therapy

    Shockwave therapy involves a series of shockwave pulses which generates sound waves by an air compressor that are applied to the injured area.

    Shockwave Therapy helps regenerate new tissue and facilitates healing by:

    • Improving local blood flow
    • Stimulations of fibroblasts to increase collagen production
    • Reduction of pain through the reduction in substance P
    • Reduction of local muscle tension trigger points
    • Breakdown of calcium deposits
