Shockwave therapy is available on site at The White Rose Clinic, delivered by Mr Adam Budgen, the renowned orthopaedic surgeon’.
Shockwaves are acoustic waves with an extremely high energy peak like ones which occur in the atmosphere after an explosive event such as a lightning strike or a sonic boom.
A shockwave differs from ultrasound by its extremely large pressure amplitude.
Additionally, ultrasound usually consists of a periodic oscillation, whereas a shockwave is a single pulse.
During Shockwave therapy, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. This leads to a cascade of beneficial effects such as neovascularisation ingrowth, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium build-up.
Stimulation of these biological mechanisms creates an optimal healing environment.
As the injured area is returned to normal, functionality is restored and pain is relieved.
