In addition, shockwave therapy has a direct effect on the chemical environment of tissues at a cellular level, releasing free radicals that can help to prevent inflammation. It has also been shown to increase circulation and blood flow, which can aid in the healing process.
WHY IT WORKS
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a new and safe technology that works by directly stimulating the nerves that send pain signals to the brain, effectively disrupting the pain pathway and providing relief.
Shockwave therapy produces an acoustic pressure wave that carries high energy to the painful spot. This energy promotes healing, regenerating and repairing processes of the bones and soft tissue.
