Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (EWST) is a therapeutic treatment method for a variety of soft tissue injuries. It works by passing shock waves, an intense but short energy wave that travels faster than the speed of sounds into the tissues.

With this innovative treatment, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically.

How does it work?

This process induces micro-trauma to the injured tissue, creating an acute response from the body. This increases the blood circulation to the area by a process known as Neovascularisation.
