Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-energy acoustic waves and a coupling medium to transmit sound waves to the tissues for the treatment. These sound waves produce a therapeutic effect causing a decrease in pain thus increasing mobility and functionality by triggering the body's healing process. This modality is more commonly used while treating many musculoskeletal conditions, involving connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons.
The patient experiences temporary tenderness, soreness, or swelling for a few days after the treatment shockwaves stimulate an inflammatory response. The patient returns to regular activities immediately after the completion of the treatment.
