Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy helps to accelerate the healing process by stimulating the metabolism as well as enhancing blood circulation in regenerating damaged tissue by applying strong energy pulses to the affected area. In a short amount of time, it creates micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst that will penetrate tissue and stimulates cells in the body for healing. Shockwave Therapy is highly effective in cases where the injured body part is not able to heal on its own.


The Medical Effects of Shockwave Therapy:


New blood vessel formation: 

Arterioles will be re-model and stimulated for the growth of the new one. This will improve blood supply as well as oxygenation to the treated area hence supporting faster healing time for both the tendon and bone.


Reversal of chronic inflammation: The pro-inflammatory process helps to restore normal healing and regenerative. This will help to decrease the chronic pain felt by the patients immediately once the Shockwave Therapy is applied. 


Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts: Acoustic waves can break up the existing calcifications. It will start with the biochemical decalcification of the calcium build-up of a toothpaste-like consistency and treats the affected tendon. 


Release of trigger points: The vicious cycle of metabolic crisis will cause the trigger of points that will mostly cause pain in the back, neck, shoulders, and limbs. 

Shockwave Therapy will deliver acoustic energy to unblock the calcium pump and thus reverses the metabolic crisis in the myofilaments and releases the trigger points for the patient’s comfort.
