What is Shockwave Therapy?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) offers a remarkable healing approach. With a handheld device emitting high-energy sound waves, also known as pressure waves, it’s like a gentle massage for your injured tissue. These mechanical shockwaves trigger the body’s natural healing processes, inducing an inflammation-like response that promotes blood circulation and metabolism. The result? Enhanced cell regeneration and accelerated healing. And that’s not all! Shockwave Therapy can even help reduce calcifications and improve pain levels and range of motion in individuals with frozen shoulder. It’s a game-changer for pain relief and healing!
