What is Shockwave?

Shockwave was originally developed for the medical sector 20 years ago to break down kidney and gallstones. One of the noticed side effects was accelerated tissue healing and increased bone density. Shockwave was then developed for rehabilitation of chronic painful conditions with an emphasis on tissue healing.
