How does shockwave therapy work?

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical treatment which works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This increases the blood flow within the affected area, stimulating cell regeneration and healing, and decreasing the local factors which can cause pain. Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the body’s self-healing powers. They stimulate the metabolism and enhance the blood circulation. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and ultimately induces a healing response.
