Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
(ESWT) is a non-invasive procedure for the treatment of acute and chronic pain of the musculoskeletal system. The shockwaves used in ESWT develop in the tissue at the point in the tissue where the pain originates from. They cause an improvement in local blood circulation and metabolism.
Conditions such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy and calcifications of the shoulder often become chronic conditions. The use of ESWT to safely treat these conditions is supported by a wealth of clinical experience and scientific evidence. In short the use of ESWT in the treatment of chronic conditions is suggested to jump start the healing process and reintroduce the acute phase of healing.
