Shockwave Therapy in Penticton

How Shockwave Therapy Works

Shockwave Therapy accelerates the healing process in injured areas by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. High-energy sound wave pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates injured tissue and stimulates cells in the area to promote tissue healing, pain relief and best of all, return to what you love doing.
