So How does Shockwave Therapy Work?
Shockwave Therapy uses acoustic sound waves to regenrate and restore tissue, while causing angiogenesis (the creation of new blood vessels) to the injured region. This allows for more blood flow, carrying vital nutrients and oxygen directly to the injured site, making for faster healing times.
According to recent studies and clinical trials Shockwave Therapy has approximately a 90% success rate from the pain and symptoms of plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation of the connective tissue on the base of the foot. Theis equates to 9 out of 10 patients suffering from plantar fasciitis were better a year later after Shockwave Therapy. Out of those treated for Achilles tendonitis, 76% were better, which is almost 8 out of 10.
