Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave works to harness your own body’s innate ability to heal itself. The “shock” in Shockwave Therapy does not refer to an electrical current, rather it refers to an impact wave that travels extremely quickly through your tissues. The shockwave causes cavitation (creation and popping of microscopic gas bubbles) in the tissue, imparts a deep vibration, increases circulation, physically breaks down adhesions and scar tissue, and evokes a complicated series of biochemical reactions all to wake up your body’s own healing mechanisms.
