Extracorporeal  Shockwave Therapy

What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)?

Technology that was originally used for Lithotripsy. A treatment that uses acoustic shockwaves to break up kidney stones without surgery.

It has been found that many people undergoing this procedure had other unrelated aches and pains disappear.

It was considered by doctors that shockwaves can have a positive effect on the healing of other types of tissues and this is the origin of ESWT.

How does it work?

Extracorporeal shockwaves encourages bio cell regeneration which can stimulate blood flow and nerve cells so the body is able to heal. In addition, ESWT seems to have a direct effect on nerves, diminishing pain.

What makes ESWT unique is that it is one of the very few technologies in any field of medicine that seems to work best when an injury reaches the chronic, non-healing state.
