What is Shockwave?
Shockwave therapy is a treatment which encourages healing in tendons, ligaments, and the connective tissue of the body. It has been used widely in the manual therapy and sporting communities. Shockwave uses sound pulses to stimulate poorly healing tissues, encouraging blood flow and promoting the natural healing processes of the body.
Shockwave therapy is recommended for the treatment of longer-term conditions which have not responded to other forms of treatment. The therapy has been well studied and is a safe, effective and non-invasive treatment option for conditions which have been deemed appropriate by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence.
