Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is particularly effective for improving circulation, encouraging new tissue growth and repairing chronic injured tissues, tendons and muscle tears to improve joint mobility. It is commonly used to help relieve conditions as frozen shoulder, tennis and golfers elbow, plantar fasciitis and even chronic sciatica. When you visit chiropractors in Worthing at our specialist clinic, the use of extracorporeal shockwave therapy is undertaken to promote and reset your natural healing pattern.
