Shockwave therapy involves the application of short, frequent, and high-intensity bursts of mechanical energy in the form of a shockwave into soft-tissue that is injured, scarred, contains adhesions, is in pain, or is inflamed. The energy transferred is not electrical, it is applied using a rapid high frequency vibration in the form of radial pressure waves.
