Shockwave therapy is a specialized technique within physiotherapy in which patients are exposed to powerful pulse waves. Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment that promotes healing of chronic tendon, muscle, or ligament injuries. Moreover, the treatment is 100% safe and completely painless. An advantage of shockwave therapy is that it has a very short treatment duration per session, while the percentage of therapy success after few treatments is very high. This makes this technique a very popular and effective therapy for many conditions. Just a small intervention with shockwave can lead to excellent results!Call us 085 301 15 05Make an appointment
With a machine we exert high pressure pulse waves into an injured structure. This causes a biological reaction of tissue cells. Moreover, shockwave therapy stimulates blood flow to the area, further promoting healing. By promoting a new inflammatory or healing response, tissue repair is then facilitated.
This treatment technique is successfully used for the treatment of muscle-tendon tissue and tendon attachments. Shockwaves accelerate the healing process by activating the self-healing properties of the body. They stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation. Shockwave therapy is used for the following, most common conditions/injuries:
