Shockwave Therapy Treatment is a procedure that uses either pressurized air or electromagnetic pulses to deliver shock waves to your body to help treat various chronic disorders, manage pain, and break up cellulite for a smoother appearance.
Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), is a device used to help with fast pain relief and mobility restoration. The therapy is a non-surgical one with no need for painkillers, makes it an ideal treatment to fasten recovery and heal various indications causing chronic pain.
How it works?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique that uses shockwaves to increase blood flow to the damaged areas to treat muscular problems by stimulating the body’s natural healing process to speed up healing.
During the process, a probe is placed on your skin, where an electrical charge will create shockwaves over the affected areas that are causing pain. Shockwave therapies are of two types: high-energy and low-energy. High-energy waves require a patient to receive a local anesthetic before the procedure, whereas low-energy waves can be done without anesthesia. Low-energy waves are more popular as it is more comfortable, and patients can even instruct the doctors about the exact areas of pain to provide more effective relief.
How does the shockwave act against cellulite? Through application of shockwave, tissue repair is achieved, and the tissue damage caused by the cellulite is repaired.
