This is not uncommon, many people often take time to build trust with new procedures. Top sports clubs and have been using shock wave therapy for years, and it is now beginning to take off in the public domain as physiotherapy in London.

One example of how the treatment works as a rapid pain relief and curing chronic pain is the release of trigger points. Trigger points are the principal cause of pain in the back, neck, shoulder and limbs. Without getting too scientific, parts of the body start to contract so tightly, that the cut off their own blood supply. This results with waste products to building up around the area of pain, causing irritation to the sensory nerve endings prompting a vicious circle of further contractions! Otherwise known as the ‘metabolic crisis’. The shock waves target these areas and their acoustic energy unblocks the cycle stimulating metabolic activity, breaking the vicious cycle and which promotes healing.
