Shockwave Therapy



Shockwave therapy is a non surgical, non invasive device used in the treatment of orthopedics, physiotherapy and sports medicine. It assists in providing relief of chronic and acute pain without the use of painkillers. At the same time it helps restore mobility. Shockwave therapy uses acoustic waves to trigger a biological response, leading to faster, long-term healing by stimulating tissue regeneration.

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