Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that helps quickly regenerate damaged tissues. Strong energy pulses are applied to the injury site and promote healing by enhancing cell metabolism and circulation. It is commonly used to treat a variety of tendinopathies and does not have any notable side effects. Most patients only require three-to-six sessions.
Therapeutic shockwaves were originally introduced as a medical treatment for eliminating kidney stones. Today, shockwave technology is used globally by millions of people to treat a wide range of conditions.
