Shockwave therapy | Fees and Charges
What is shockwave therapy?
Shockwave is a kind of high-energy sound wave that penetrates the skin surface into body tissues without puncturing the skin. As a non-invasive therapy, it has been widely used in the recent years in orthopedics and physiotherapy to treat pain of the ligaments, tendons, soft bone tissues, etc. The principle of the therapy is to use extracorporeal shockwaves to penetrate the skin surface and reach the injured part of the tendon. Through generating vapourised blasting and destroying adhesion of the injured tendons, scars, and even calcified or fibrotic soft tissues (so-called loosening the injured body sites), it stimulates re-growth of soft tissues, accelerates blood circulation, and promotes recovery. Meanwhile, high-energy shockwaves can stimulate pain receptors, block transmission of pain, and achieve immediate pain relief.
