What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary treatment, which uses acoustic shockwaves to treat tendonopathies, muscles aches & pains, osteoarthritis, cerebral palsy spasticity and delayed union and non-union fractures. 
How it works?
A handheld device generates Shockwaves, which are delivered to the target tissue through the skin. These shockwaves can penetrate up to 40mm deep and different pressure and impulses can be set according to the specific treatment.
At first the treatment causes an analgesic affect, which numbs the pain around the target area. In order for patients to reap the benefits of shockwave therapy a collection of 4-6 treatments is recommended.
