Shockwave Therapy is one of the latest technologies for a range of tendon, muscle and joint conditions.
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work to Reduce Pain?
Shock Wave therapy involves conversion of mechanical waves in to shock waves that it applied repeatedly to an area of injury.
Pain is initially reduced by diminishing nerve pain signals relayed to the brain. This results in an immediate reduction in pain. It also assists by fighting inflammation.
Apart from diminishing pain, shockwave therapy also helps with the physical repair and regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues. Studies have shown that shockwave therapy stimulates repair of tendons and bones, while also improving blood supply to the affected area.
