Helen has now been using shockwave therapy successfully for over seven  years here in Edinburgh.  It is important to know that the high performance elite athletes often require the true Focused Shockwaves rather an the more common radial shockwaves

Do you know the difference between Focused and Radial Shockwaves ?
