Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is an innovative, modern and highly effective treatment method. High-energy sound waves are introduced into areas of pain within the body where pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically. Shockwave Therapy uses the same acoustic wave technology that is used to break up kidney stones.

The beneficial effects of shock wave therapy are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments. The therapy eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.

Shockwave Therapy has numerous benefits:

  • Non-Surgical
  • Boosts the natural healing process due to increased blood flow
  • Accelerated connective tissue healing
  • Ease Of Use
  • Affordable
  • Breaks down scar tissue
  • Accelerated soft tissue repair
