Shockwave Therapy Leeds
Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) – The Next Generation Of Pain Relief
What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980, for example, to disintegrate kidney stones. In modern pain therapy, shock wave energy is applied to painful body regions, where it can accelerate the healing process, stimulate metabolism and improve blood circulation. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates using the body’s natural healing process.
Many years of experience have confirmed that pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words, the root causes of pain – can be eliminated systematically with this innovative therapy approach. It is a highly effective procedure to treat pain and restore full mobility with fewer complications and minimal risks or side effects.
