Shockwave therapy (also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy) is applied directly to the site of your injury to increase your blood flow, break down scar tissue and adhesions, decrease pain, heal skin tissue and stimulate your body’s natural healing response.

Stay Active’s physiotherapists use shockwave therapy as a non-invasive treatment that involves high-frequency, short-duration bursts of high-energy pulses transmitted into your injured tissues to stimulate a healing response.

Most people will notice the benefits of shockwave therapy right away (even right after the first session) in treating their chronic soft tissue injuries, tendinopathies and repetitive strain disorders.
