How does Shockwave Therapy work?
Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the body’s self-healing powers, particularly in cases where the body has been unable to do it on its’ own. In essence it acts as a ‘kickstart’ to stimulate the metabolism and enhance blood circulation. This enables the damaged tissue to regenerate and eventually heal.
How long does treatment last?
The therapy session takes about 15 minutes depending on the injury that is treated. In general, 7-10 sessions are necessary at weekly intervals however more can be needed depending on the severity of your injury.
