Shockwave therapy utilizes high pressure waves of compressed air to mechanically break up calcification and scar tissue caused by repetitive stress. The technology was founded over 20 years ago for the treatment of kidney stones – today known as lithotripsy – and was adapted in order to be applied to the soft tissues of the body (muscles, tendons, etc). Millions of patients worldwide have benefited from this therapy.
Shockwave offers a non-invasive treatment solution for chronic tendonapathies and other soft tissue disorders. Treatments administered to the affected areas stimulate the regeneration process of injured tissues which have sustained histological changes. Radial pressure wave therapy is best indicated for resilient conditions that have not responded to traditional therapy.
