Shockwave therapy is clinically proven to heal musculoskeletal conditions. It works using acoustic waves which are similar to air pressure waves.
Waves are administered through contact with skin and penetrate through soft tissue. This process triggers body’s natural mechanism of self-healing by stimulating blood flow to the affected area. As a result, our body gets the ability to:
In general, RSWT produces an anti-inflammatory effect, activates cellular defense, dilates blood vessels, increases blood circulation and rejuvenates bone tissue.
