What Is Shockwave

Shockwave therapy is an effective, non-invasive healing option for most tissues including bone, muscle, tendon and skin. Shockwaves are mechanical sound waves that breakdown scar tissue and stimulate new blood vessel growth; driving endogenous stem cell activation in the treatment area and accelerating healing.

Not all waves are created equal...

There are multiple forms of shockwave therapy used in medicine today. Radial shockwave is common in many clinics and sounds much like a small jackhammer. Interestingly, it is not a shockwave at all; it is a pressure wave. Highly effective in its own right, radial pressure wave therapy treats more superficial tissues, having a different wave shape and physical properties than true shockwaves. Extracorporeal shockwave devices are somewhat rare in Canadian clinics. The way the wave is generated allows it to travel much deeper into the tissue with less energy loss and more accuracy. An extracorporeal shockwave treatment will make less sound but will have a much greater impact at the cellular level.
