SHOCKWAVE THERAPY: A POSITIVE TREATMENT FOR SPORTS INJURY
Professional athletes from a host of different sports are suffering from a range of injuries day to day with the demand and work rate being higher than ever before. The question is, how are athletes being treated for a full and effective recovery?
The simple answer – shockwave therapy.
Shockwave therapy was first created in the 1970s and was initially used as a treatment method for kidney stones (then known as lithotripsy). Using this method meant more and more people were avoiding the need for a painful, invasive surgery, and the same goes for athletes today.
This is why we decided to create an infographic based around shockwave therapy for the use of treating sports injuries. Our visual includes:
