Shock Waves are movements of extremely high pressure caused by, for example, an explosion, an earthquake or a plane breaking the sound barrier.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of Shock Waves in medicine.
It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions:
- Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
- Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation
We have been performing shockwave treatments since 2000! Thanks to this technology, we have avoided thousands of trips to the operating room. From heel pain, to tendinitis and even stress fractures, shockwave is a safe, effective and cost effective solution to hundreds of orthopedic diseases.
