Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a fast and effective non-surgical method of eliminating or reducing many painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. ESWT technology is derived from lithotripsy, a technique that has been in use for approximately 20 years to disintegrate kidney stones without the use of invasive surgery. This cutting-edge technology delivers pneumatically generated, high-pressure acoustic shockwaves which travel through the skin to the affected area of the body. This aids in eliminating calcium deposits that cause pain (e.g., heel spurs or shoulder calcification) as well as stimulating the body's healing processes.
ESWT proves to be a relatively inexpensive, effective and non-invasive treatment for many conditions without any significant side effects when administered by experts.
