Muscle Shock Therapy at home?!!!

Im wondering if anyone has had any experience with some type of Machine that sends shocklike waves to the muscle problem areas? My daughters Therapist is requesting this for her hand that is in a constant fist, and unable to move or use it properly. Also leg braces....They need to fit her for braces so that she doesnt lock her knees during her weight training therapy...has anyone had success with this, they are $1200 each!Just curious what the odds may be, and how it has worked for others.

Are you sure its called muscle shock therapy?
I am familiar with electric stimulation (neuromuscular electric stimulation - NMES). If this is it - she will just show you were to put electodes and how to set the machine. You can do it at home, its not a big deal, as long as the PT teaches you where the electrodes go and does all the settings for you.
good luck
