Shockwaves are essentially sound waves with a more specific wave form when compared with ultrasound wave forms. Unlike ultrasound wave forms. Shockwave therapy penetrates deeper into the tissue and thus to the site of injury. The biologic signaling effect of shockwaves is much higher than ultrasound and is therefore clinically much more effective.

- Golfer's and Tennis elbow (epicondylitis)
- Chronic foot/heel pain (plantar fasciitis)
- Jumper's knee (patella tip syndrome)
