WHAT IS EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY?
Since the early 1980’s the medical profession has made use of shock waves to treat a number of ailments, including the breakup of kidney stones.
ESWT – Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy – relies on a series of high energy sound waves which are directed into the areas of pain. These waves accelerate healing by activating the body’s own regenerative powers, stimulating metabolic activity and boosting blood circulation. Painless mobility is the ultimate result.
Patients typically experience the benefits of shock wave therapy after only 1 or 2 sessions. Pain is eliminated, mobility is restored and quality of life is increased.
The risks and side effects are virtually non-existent when ESWT is administered by a qualified professional such as Dr Lance Riggien.
