Dissolve Calcification

Certain conditions such as Achilles tendinitis or supraspinatus tendinitis have a high predilection to develop calcification.Calcification is formed in response to micro -tears or trauma to the tendon.Research has proven the benefits of Shockwave Therapy in reducing the size of these calicifications

Reduces Chronic Pain

The sensation of “pain” is modulated by the presence of “Sub-stance P”, a neurotransmitter in the nervous system that processes pain.Higher level of substance P is found in chronic pain patients.It can be dispersed through the help of Shockwave Therapy

Release Trigger Points

Shockwave Theraphy can help resolve pain in chronic pain patients who tried everything from massage to chiropractic to physiotheraphy to resolve resistant trigger points. Shockwave Theraphy’s acoustic energy can unblock calcium pump and reserve metabolic crisis in the muscle cells,releasing therefore the trigger points
