Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance. In Physical Therapy pain reduction treatments, “Shock Wave” is applied to the painful body regions, where it can exert its curative action. Shock-Wave can accelerate the body’s natural healing process by helping the injured cells stimulate the infiltration of mast cells, and resident macrophages to release chemical signals that cause vasodilation. This phenomenon is followed by regeneration of tissue as fibroblasts depositing collagen. Some tissues regenerate more readily than others. Epithelial and connective tissues replace damaged or dead cells from a supply of adult stem cells.
Shock-Wave can be used on the following but not limited to: Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis, Patellar Tendonitis, Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints), Achillodynia (Chronic pain syndrome of Achilles tendon), Plantar Foot Muscles Pain, Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur).
