What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive pain-free treatment in which our Mississauga clinic gives treatment that uses sound waves to heal the body. It works by sending sound waves through the body. These sound waves help to break up any scar tissue or calcium deposits that may be causing pain. The sound waves also stimulate blood flow and help to promote healing.
