Shockwave Therapy

What is radial Shockwave Therapy?
Radial Shockwaves are acoustic pressure waves that generate oscillations in the tissue. The wave hits the body at skin surface and from there travels radially into the body up to 5-6cm depth. In the body, the pressure waves stimulate metabolic activity and the body’s intrinsic healing mechanism.

> Disintegrate tendon calcifications
> Smooth trigger points (hard knots in a muscle)
> Reduce muscle hypertonia and spasticity
> Decrease pain

What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?
> Short treatment time (5-10 minutes) which is combined with other therapies to provide the best possible outcomes from each session
