shock wave therapy

Question?  What is Shockwave Therapy and how does it work? A clinical shockwave therapy is nothing more than a controlled explosion that creates acoustic energy, much like an airplane breaking the sound barrier or when lightning strikes. The greatest effect of a shock wave therapy is generation of direct mechanical force that is well controlled. The main benefits for shockwave therapy is based on inflammatory healing response. Every time shock wave is used during treatment, it causes microtruama to the treated tissue.

Custom-made orthotics are medical devices which, when worn with proper shoes, are able to affect biomechanics during gait and pressure distribution by gently realigning bones of the foot and decreasing its hypermobility. Orthotics … [Read more...]
