WELCOME TO THE PHYSIO BOX
Shockwave is one of the most advanced medical technologies in the medical field to treat muscular and tendon injuries such as (foot/ankle tendinopathies, shoulder strains, hip/knee inflammations).
Scientific evidence demonstrated an efficacy of 85% with a reduction of 50% in recovery time when patients were treated via Shockwave compared to conventional therapy.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Shockwave in Kensington: The machine produces compressed air which drives a projectile in a cylinder inside the hand piece to a shock transmitter. This mechanism creates energy or waves which is transmitted into the underlying tissue.
Why Is This Beneficial For My Injury?
The body has the ability to heal itself during the first few days or weeks from an injury by using anti-inflammatory cells naturally produced.
However, sometimes this process fails leading to a ‘chronic pain,’ which is technically the inability of your body to heal itself.
Therefore… Shockwave in Kensington is a way of ‘rebooting’ a stalled healing cascade producing chemicals cells able to repair the injured tissue and reduce pain almost immediately.
