What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a modern and effective treatment used to treat aches and pains in the body. Comfort Zone is one of the few practices in the Bognor Regis area to offer this breakthrough technology.

Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and uses pressure waves to treat various conditions, a probe will be pressed against your problem area and the shockwaves will be delivered through the skin. Although the shockwaves can be a little uncomfortable, they are relatively painless.

If you are unsure whether shockwave therapy is for you, contact our experienced Chiropractor for a consultation.
