Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is the application of shock Waves in the treatment of many soft tissue and sporting injuries. There is clinical evidence to demonstrate that when pressure waves are applied it can stimulate a reaction to:
1) Reduce pain felt by nerve fibres
2) Increase blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
3) Begins the healing process triggered by stem cell activation
(approx 4-6 sessions needed depending upon severity and location and symptoms)
