It is an acoustic wave which carries its high energy to the painful spot and provokes healing and repair processes. It can be defined as a wave with a rapid rise of pressure within a very short time and then having a gradual decrease of pressure with a small negative pressure phase.

It is a pressure pulse with following characteristics

  • High positive pressure amplitude 10-1000MPa = 100-1000 Bar (100*atmospheric pressure)
  • Low negative pressure amplitude 1- 10 MPa
  • Short time duration (1-20 microseconds)
  • Rapid pressure increase <100ns
  • Broad frequency spectrum (1Hz to 1MHz)

Overall Advantages Of Shock Wave Therapy

  • By targeted application, stress to the surrounding tissues is quite insignificant.
  • No medications required.
  • Surgical intervention and their relative hazards can be prevented.
