WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
Shockwave therapy – also known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) and acoustic wave therapy (AWT) among other names – uses acoustic waves to transmit high peak pressure waves to promote and accelerate healing for subacute and chronic conditions.
- Remodel fibrotic tissue, release trigger points
- Reverse chronic inflammation
- Increase nitric oxide (NO)
- Activate stem cells and growth factors
- Reduce pain faster
- Improve range of motion
- Increase blood flow, microcirculation
- Stimulate tissue remodeling, neovascularization
ABOUT SHOCK WAVE TECHNOLOGY
Shock wave technology is a research-backed treatment solution that utilizes high-energy acoustic waves to send pulses to afflicted musculoskeletal tissue. The acoustic waves exert a mechanical force on the tissue to trigger the biological effects at a cellular level. Shockwave therapy helps to trigger and improve the body’s healing capabilities by increasing stem cell activity and blood circulation, which stimulates the regeneration of damaged tissue.
