Shockwave Therapy™ utilities short intense energy waves traveling faster than the speed of sound. These energy waves to stimulate the breakdown of scar tissue and fibroblasts. This process increases blood circulation and initiates metabolic activity, causing an inflammatory response that promotes and stimulates healing. This added circulation will promote tissue healing in the injured site and help in resolving the pain. Shockwave helps to provide long-term pain relieving effect over the affected painful area. Treatable Conditions 1. Plantar Fasciitis 2. Achilles Tendinopathy 3. Tennis Elbow 4. Golfers Elbow 5. Calcific Tendonitis 6. Bursitis 7. Chronic Tendinitis 8. Trigger...Read more
