What is shockwave therapy, and can it help me?

Shockwave therapy is a safe, non-invasive and often an alternative to surgery for those suffering from chronic joint and tendon pains and disorders.  Shockwave therapy uses “acoustic pressure waves” to help heal old or chronic injuries.  Shockwave works by breaking up old scar tissues on tendons and ligaments as well as promoting regeneration of blood vessels.  This leads to faster healing and a return to pre-injury activity levels.
