Shock Wave Therapy
WHAT ARE SHOCK WAVES?
Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance. In modern pain therapy, shock wave energy is applied to the painful body regions, where it can exert its curative action.
Shock waves accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals. Many years of experience have confirmed that pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this innovative therapy approach.
If performed by qualified therapists, extra-corporeal shock wave therapy is a highly effective procedure to treat pain with minimal risks or side effects.
