‘Deep tissue stimulation utilising shock wave'
Shockwave therapy is a device that utilises non-electrical high energy sound wave that passes through the body structures to achieve a therapeutic effect. Radial shockwaves are applied to the tissue to stimulate metabolic activity and trigger the body's natural healing response.
The clinical benefits of shock waves include: pain reduction, scar tissue reduction, increased metabolism, as shockwaves influence the tissues on a cellular level, revascularisation effect, where the renewed blood flow promotes tissue healing and regeneration, muscle relaxation, and mobility restoration. Furthermore, they are clinically proven to treat many chronic conditions such as achilles tendon injuries & plantar fasciitis.
Also, it is used in treating deep spinal and joint muscles that are difficult to treat from the outer surface. You may experience slight discomfort when the shockwave is applied on you, feeling described as strong rapid tapping deep inside the joints and muscles.
