Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Tudor Physiotherapy

Effects

During Shockwave therapy, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects such as: increased circulation and neovascularisation, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up and analgesic effects. Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved.
