Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

What is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes shock waves to address a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Unlike traditional surgical interventions, ESWT does not require incisions or anesthesia, making it an attractive option for patients seeking alternatives to invasive procedures.

How Does ESWT Work?

During an ESWT session, shock waves are delivered directly to the affected area of the body using a specialized device. These shock waves stimulate the body's natural healing processes and enhance tissue regeneration. Additionally, ESWT has been shown to disrupt pain signals and reduce inflammation, leading to pain relief and improved functionality.
