  • What is Shockwave Therapy?


Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute,

sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. 

Shockwaves are characterized by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity. 

The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue.
