What is Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), commonly known as shockwave therapy, is a non-surgical procedure used to treat chronic conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy uses an acoustic wave to carry energy to the targeted pain regions of musculoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub-chronic and chronic conditions. The kinetic energy aimed at the body, generated by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator, the application of which activates the regenerative process within the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
