How Pressure Wave Technology Really Works

Pressure wave technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. In many instances, pressure wave technology is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.


Pressure wave therapy is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles, and bones can be eliminated systematically.


There are numerous benefits from pressure wave technology:

  • Non-Surgical
  • No Side Effects
  • Accelerated Healing
  • Ease of Use
  • Affordable


The beneficial effects of pressure wave therapy are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments. The therapy eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.
