Extracorporeal implies outside body (non-invasive therapy)

How can it work?
Neo-vascularization and Healing: Shockwave creates mechanical pressing factor which increases cell layer penetrability. Acoustic waves cause capillaries in tissue to burst, which increases growth factor to injured area. Thus making neo-vascularization or fresh blood supply which brings more oxygen, hence increases healing
Breaks Calcification and heel spurs: Acoustic wave additionally crushes calcifications and stimulates osteoblasts for mending and new bone creation.
Reduce pain: Acoustic waves makes hyperstimulation, sedation. It blocks pain to travel to brains hence helps to manage and reduce pain.
