Shockwave therapy uses electric shocks to treat conditions in multiple fields of health. This includes orthopedics, physiotherapy, kinesiology, urology, and veterinary medicine. One of its most possible uses is to relieve pain immediately without the need for surgery. Shockwave therapy can speed up recovery by stimulating tissue growth and muscle regeneration.

Moreover, Shockwave Therapy has been proven to treat conditions in not only the feet but also in the shoulder, knee, hip, the lower and upper part of the legs, and back pain.

A few conditions that shockwave therapy treat is 

  • Shoulder injuries 
  • Chronic Achilles tendonitis 
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Elbow tendinopathies 
  • Myofascial syndrome 

It should be known that if there is a disorder for circulation, nerve problems, infection, or a bone tumor, shockwave therapy is not an option for treatment. Additionally, it is not suitable for open wounds or on people who are pregnant.
