Advanced Shockwave Therapy Techniques
Using shockwave techniques to treat chronic pain
Shockwave therapy is an acoustic wave that passes through the body and initiates a pro-inflammatory response in the treated tissues with minimal side effects. It is emerging as a safe treatment option for soft tissue injuries with an improvement rate of 60 – 80 % in chronic conditions that have been difficult to manage.
