shock wave therapy machine for pain relief
Shockwave therapy works by emitting high energy pulses. These
pulses of acoustic energy are focused on the target tissues by the
handpiece / applicator of the shockwave therapy machine and are
cause localized microtrauma that stimulates the bodies natural
healing processes.The shock waves are believed to stimulate
angiogenesis / neovascularization (new blood vessels) and
neurogenesis (new nerve cells). The microtrauma increases local
circulation and enhances breakdown of calcifications (calcium

Does shockwave therapy hurt?
Shockwave therapy should not cause you pain. Occasionally, if the
area being treated is already very
painful, some increase in discomfort may be experienced during
treatment. The intensity of the
shockwaves can be controlled by the therapist using the machine in
such a way that discomfort can be
How long is a typical shockwave therapy treatment?
The actual application of the shockwave therapy typically only
lasts for around 5 minutes.
Shock wave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
(ESWT), is a clinically proven and highly effective treatment for
chronic soft tissue injuries and certain bone conditions.
An extracorporeal shockwave is defined as a non-invasive,
non-electrical high energy sound wave that passes through the body
via a hand-held probe. The shock waves produce a rapid increase in
blood circulation to the target area and will break down fibrous
scar tissue which builds up over time, especially with chronic
The removal of scar tissue is the key to why shock wave therapy is
so effective. Unlike normal elasticated tissue, scar tissue is
non-elastic and will prevent normal movement and function, thereby
weakening the unaffected tissue surrounding it, often causing
further damage and pain.
By increasing circulation and removing scar tissue, shock wave
therapy will stimulate cell regeneration and promote normal healing
and rapid reduction of pain. Normal function can then be restored.
