shockwave-webWhat Is Shock Wave Therapy (SWT)?

Radial shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves. They are transmitted through the surface of the skin and spread radially (spherically) into the body. The body, responds with increased metabolic activity around the site of the pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.
