Introducing “Shockwave Therapy“
Shockwave Therapy has been successfully used to treat urinary stones for more than 20 years, and has been used more recently extremely successfully for sufferers of conditions such as Plantar Fascilitis and tennis elbow. It uses the latest high tech non surgical equipment and as such is far less invasive than traditional surgery.
The treatment delivers a shockwave through the surface of the skin to the injured tissue. This shockwave inflames the injured tissue and accelerates the healing process by regenerating blood vessels thus providing pain relief for the patient.
