Shockwave Therapy

What is extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment in which a device is used to pass acoustic shockwaves through the skin to the affected area of the body. ESWT is a potential alternative to surgery with good mid-term effectiveness and minimal side effects.

ESWT is one of the new treatment methods being utilized today to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders covering the whole body. It can treat a variety of conditions using shock waves, or extracorporeal shock waves, outside the body. The treatment is non-invasive, making it the ideal solution for those who would prefer a non-surgical healing process.
