How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
The basic principles behind shockwave therapy are the high pressured acoustic shockwaves that travel through the skin to stimulate pain relief and tissue repair.
What does shockwave treatment feel like?

You will find no known significant complications with shockwave therapy. Many people could get localized bruising. Others will feel discomfort for time.

As well, we provide specific strengthening exercises and stretches so together with shockwave treatments there is excellent means to healing.
