Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive treatment that uses low energy acoustic wave pulsations to trigger your body’s innate healing response. It’s a great way to achieve lasting results without the risks and recovery time of surgery and has numerous applications.
Shockwave therapy systems use compressed air to create kinetic energy, which is then moved into a transmitter on the treatment handpiece and delivered deep into your body’s tissues. Your body responds promptly to these sound waves and begins creating new cells almost immediately.
Treatments aren’t painful and don’t require any advance preparation or significant recovery time. A degree of soreness in the treatment area is normal after sessions, but there’s no need for anesthesia or restricted activities after treatments.
Shockwave therapy is a popular treatment option in many sports medicine and orthopedic practices and is now becoming widely available in other medical settings, including medical aesthetics.
