Extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy, also known as shockwave therapy, is a medical treatment using high-energy acoustic waves to break down tissue to promote healing and repair. These acoustic waves are applied from outside the body, hence the "extracorporeal" description. This treatment helps to accelerate the body's normal healing process. It helps speed up the recovery of injured joints and tissue while diminishing pain and discomfort.
Extrocorporeal acoustic wave therapy treats joint pain and can be a great addition to chiropractic care.
