What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy is a electromagnetic-based method of breaking up scar tissue. This sends highly focused electromagnetic shock waves into the areas of your body identified to have scar tissue build-up. Those waves are set at a frequency that specifically targets and breaks down scar tissue. Scar tissue is what causes people to stiffen after trauma and with aging.
Our bodies form scar tissue from little injuries (poor posture, repetitive stress, holding children, etc.) to big ones (car accidents, falls, etc.). Scar tissue accumulates over time, just like plaque on teeth, limiting movement and causing pain. When you break up the scar tissue you can restore movement – and the pain disappears.
