A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave that is faster than the speed of sound. The technology was developed in Europe, where it has been used for years. It breaks up scar tissue in soft tissues such as tendon, ligament, fascia and bursa. It generates new blood vessels and stimulates an inflammatory response that accelerates healing.
