Shockwaves are acoustic waves with an extremely high energy peak like ones which occur in the atmosphere after an explosive event such as a lightning strike or a sonic boom. They cause microscopic interstitial and extracellular biological effects which include tissue regeneration.
Conditions commonly treated with shockwave therapy:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff disorders
- Tennis elbow or Golfer’s elbow (epicondylitis)
- Trigger points
