Do you suffer from pain and lack of mobility in your joints or tendons? Then Shockwave Therapy may be the answer you’re looking for.
Shockwave Therapy is a revolutionary treatment path to alleviate any pain, discomfort, or immobility due to joint or tendon conditions. It is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for patients and therefore comes with little down times.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Rather than using a surgical procedure to rectify the joint or tendon tissue, shockwave therapy sends acoustic shock waves into painful areas of bone or soft tissue with acute and chronic conditions.
The energy stimulates faster regeneration and reparative processes of the tissue or bone, resulting in faster healing and therefore allowing you to return to pre-injury activity levels.
Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy is used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, and sports medicine, and its prime benefits are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Combined with being a non-surgical treatment with no requirement for painkillers, shockwave therapy is ideal for helping to speed up recovery and cure several indications that cause acute or chronic pain.
What Does Shockwave Therapy Treat?
Shockwave therapy is being used to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions, including the following:
- Calcific tendonitis
