What Is Shockwave Therapy and What Happens During the Treatment?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment delivering sound waves to improve mobility and reduce pain and discomfort. During the treatment, a specialized shockwave machine (At Radiant Physiotherapy, we use the high-quality Enraf Endoplus 811 brand machine) delivers the mechanical, low-energy acoustic (sound) waves to the injured area.

These shockwaves desensitize nerve endings to reduce pain and cause controlled micro-trauma (microscopic damage) to the tissues to increase blood circulation and metabolism. This accelerates the body’s natural healing process, minimizing the discomfort. The sound waves can also break down scar tissue and calcifications (hardening of tissue due to insoluble calcium deposits).
