Shockwave therapy is a revolutionary treatment which improves the speed you recover from tendon problems such as achilles pain or plantar fasciitis.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for soft tissue and musculoskeletal problems that are often associated with sports and exercise. Essentially the treatment involves applying a shockwave device to the area affected so acoustic waves can penetrate the damaged tissue within the tendon. The shockwaves produce an inflammatory response in the muscle, causing the body to increase metabolic activity around the site of pain, accelerating the healing process. The process only takes a few minutes and combined with a course of progressive rehab can significantly reduce healing time.
