What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy is a non-surgical – non-drug-based – scientifically approved therapy that is widely used as a pain treatment.
Medical lasers use ‘highly focused beams of light’ to heal – just ask any eye surgeon! Radiation therapy uses ‘highly focused radioactive waves’ to heal – just ask any cancer specialist! Shockwave Therapy ‘highly focused sound waves to heal – just ask us!
Shockwave devices generate highly focused sound waves that travel through the bodies tissues. They don’t cause any harm to healthy tissues – but amazingly they are strong enough to break up a kidney stone.
It was the breaking up of kidney stones (lithotripsy) that ShockwaveTherapy was originally researched and developed for in the 1980s. After it was discovered that sound waves at a specific level are fundamentally harmless to soft tissues – but can be very harmful to solid objects.
