Radial shock waves are acoustic waves that generate oscillations in the tissue being treated. The shock wave hits the body at the skin’s surface and travels radially into the body to a depth of approximately 2″.
In the body, the shock waves stimulate metabolic activity and the body’s intrinsic healing mechanism.
