Shockwaves are a very unique type of pressure waves, abruptly alternating from high pressure to low pressure, faster than the speed of sound. They are created within the soft tissues of the body, by the application of highly specialized acoustic waves from a shockwave device. Shockwaves are used in modern medicine as an alternative to surgery for specific conditions that cause pain. Shockwaves are not as electrical in nature as their name may imply.

They are also not to be confused with other acoustic wave technology such as ultrasound, TENS, IFC or muscle stimulators. Two major differences exist that distinguish shockwaves from ordinary pressure waves. Shockwaves travel faster than a conventional sound wave, faster than the speed of sound (shock)at 760 miles per hour. Secondly, shockwaves possess a high degree of energy as seen in physics, meaning they possess the ability to do work when applied to the tissues in the body. The work that shockwaves are known for is their ability to break apart unwanted structures in the body which ultimately cause pain.

Shockwaves are used in medicine to break apart kidney stones in a process called Lithotripsies. Therapists also use shockwaves to break apart unwanted calcium deposits and the hardened, twisted/tangled bands (myofascial adhesions) which develop in muscles, tendons and ligaments, responsible for so many painful conditions. The term “Dysfunctions” refers to any abnormal tissues in the body, including adhesions and the calcium deposits which can invade them.


How It Benefits

Shockwave RSWT is a very effective alternative for conservative therapy.

Myofascial Trigger Points

Trigger points are the nodes and bands within the muscular tissue. According to the regions that they reside, these points mostly result in the creation of pain in the head, neck, shoulder back and low back, in general, they are known as Tibial Syndrome (Tibial Stress Syndrome- Shin Splint )

It is accepted that it emerges by slowing down blood flow due to spasm in arteries and blockages in the veins.

Scar and Wrinkle Treatment

With shockwave therapy, activation of fibroblast cells which are responsible for the tightness and firmness of the body can be augmented.

By proliferation of collagen and regeneration of connective tissue, sagging and deformations of the face, gills and the neck regions, sides of the back and legs can be effectively stopped in a very short time and you can have a smoother and younger appearance.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most commonly seen orthopaedic complaints your plantar fascia experienced considerable erosion and corrosion in your daily life.

Normally, these ligaments serve as shock absorbers and support the curve of the foot. Exerting too much pressure on your feet can tear out and damages the ligaments and inflammation is generated on the plantar fascia and this inflammation causes pain and stiffness of the heel.

Shock wave therapy is a special type of treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing process by reaching diseased areas. The result is faster healing, pain, swelling and reduced inflammation.
