Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance.
In modern pain therapy, shock wave energy is applied to the painful body regions, where it can exert its curative action. Shock waves can accelerate the healing process in the body, they stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation; damaged tissue can regenerate and fully heal.
Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this innovative therapy approach. If performed by qualified therapists, extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a highly effective procedure to treat pain with minimal risks or side effects.
