What is Shockwave Therapy?
The process of delivering bursts of shock waves to injured soft tissues in order to minimize pain and help the tissues heal quickly is known as Shockwave therapy. It is a non-invasive therapy in which trained specialists conduct the procedure. You may feel small pulses against your skin during the course of the therapy as the shockwaves are delivered to the soft tissues.
How does shockwave therapy work?
When a burst of high-intensity energy sound wave is sent to your injured soft tissues, that area of your body begins to produce more collagen and blood vessels which in turn promotes tissue regeneration. Excessive calcium deposits are dissolved, and gradually, chronic inflammation reduces in the area. Over a period of time, the therapy can increase circulation, tissue metabolism, and bone strength, which helps you regain mobility so that you can carry out your life activities without mobility-related hindrances.
