What is Shockwave Technology? 2017-01-31T20:34:55+00:00

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. Shockwave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
