Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) – An innovative pain management solution
Many years of experience have confirmed that certain pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones – in other words the root causes of your pain – can be eliminated systematically with this innovative therapy approach.
If performed by qualified therapists, extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a highly effective procedure to treat pain with minimal risks or side effects.
Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used since 1980 to disintegrate kidney stones, for instance.
The therapist localizes the pain region by palpation and discusses the findings with you.
