A shockwave is defined as a wave with a rapid increase of pressure within a very short time and then having a gradual decrease of pressure with a small negative pressure phase. Shockwave is aimed at the affected areas that are the source of chronic pain. The influence of the shockwaves causes to the dissolution of calcium deposits and leads to better vascularization. The after-effect is relief from the pain.

Physical effects of Radial Pressure Waves offer a noninvasive treatment solution for long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies. Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern. Today there are several working hypotheses for the physical effects of radial pressure waves:
- Shockwaves create increased cell membrane permeability metabolically which allows old, damaged, and weakened cells to be removed and replaced with healthy viable cells.
- And neurologically, Shockwaves produce a counter-irritation at the dorsal root ganglion actually modulating the amount of nociceptive activity and decreasing the pain signal, and actually closing the theoretical pain gate.
- Vascular changes such as increased blood circulation in tissues increase the oxygen content and significantly reduces the concentration of carbon dioxide in the tissue which may stimulate the healing process.
- Based on the hypothesis towards associative pain memory (Wess), afferent pain signals are transmitted through the central nervous system by multiple synaptic junctions which eventually cause efferent fibers to control muscle tone. The reflex mechanism
