Shockwave Therapy uses intensive acoustic sound waves to stimulate the body’s own ability to repair tissue as well as to generate the production of natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive procedure for treating acute and chronic pain of the musculoskeletal system. Shockwave is the new “gold standard” for treating complaints such as plantar fasciitis and chronic tendinitis as well as conditions such as bursitis, tennis elbow, ulcers and even stress fractures.
Shockwave therapy has proven to be efficient and safe in the treatment of shoulder pathologies, improving pain, range of motion and functional scores. (source)
