Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive medical treatment that utilizes acoustic waves to stimulate healing and promote tissue repair. It is commonly used in orthopedics, sports medicine, and rehabilitation. The shockwaves are high-energy sound waves that are applied externally to the affected area of the body.

During a shockwave therapy session, a device delivers controlled pulses of acoustic energy to the targeted tissue. This mechanical force can trigger a biological response, including increased blood flow, the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), and the release of growth factors. These effects are believed to accelerate the healing process and reduce pain associated with certain musculoskeletal conditions.

Shockwave therapy is often employed for conditions such as tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, calcific shoulder tendonitis, and other chronic pain conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. The treatment is valued for its non-invasive nature, minimal side effects, and potential to provide relief for individuals who may not respond well to traditional treatments.
