Lion Rocker Physio and Pilates’s shockwave therapy system provides effective treatment for painful conditions affecting people of all ages and lifestyles, such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis.

What is shockwave therapy?

The shockwave is created by applying a very small amount of power to the handpiece. This creates an acoustic transducer that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy or radial pressure waves. The waves are focused on the tissue and move through it in an outward direction towards healthy tissue.

How does shockwave therapy work?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive procedure that delivers very strong but small pulses. These pulses have an effect on a cellular level that is beneficial for healing. Increased blood flow and the formation of new blood vessels create an improved environment for tissue repair. It has further been shown that the application of shock waves influences the body’s pain-regulating mechanisms resulting in local pain relief.
