How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
Ever wonder why professional athletes heal so quickly? It might be due to Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). Endorsed by physicians across specialties for the last 15 years, Perimeter Orthopaedics has used it to help patients heal from various conditions like plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, tennis elbow and more.
Shockwave therapy works by emitting high-energy pulses. These pulses of energy are delivered to the injured area using an applicator connected to the shockwave device. The shockwaves activate the circulation of new blood and new nerve cells to the injured area. The pulses work by causing trauma to the tissue stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. The result is faster and more complete healing.
