Shock Wave Therapy

Shockwave uses high energy sound waves to stimulate healing, metabolism and blood flow. This helps damaged tissue regenerate and heal.

The name shockwave is misleading as there is no electrical shock given during the treatment. Shockwave was initially used in the medical field to treat kidney stones on the 1980’s.
