What does Shockwave Therapy do?
Increases the molecule Lubricin, that lubricates our tissues, lasting days and decreasing friction!
Stimulates cells to release growth hormones that effect the growth of blood vessels, skin cells, bone, and collagen or connective tissue.
Stimulates stem cells.
Increases microcirculation or new small blood vessel growth.
Switches our immune system from inflammation to healing.
Stimulates our nerves and increases the number of nerve cells that support the lining or myelin sheath.
Releases nitric oxide (NO), a great molecule that has many great effects. It increases blood flow, increases metabolic or our cells activity, promotes more blood vessel growth, and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Shockwave Therapy also has an antibacterial effect. It kills bacteria and helps wounds heal faster.
