SHOCK WAVE THERAPY
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy or ESWT is a treatment used in physical therapy, orthopedics, urology and cardiology. The shockwave
are abrupt, high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy, similar to sound waves, generated by an electromagnetic coil or a spark in water. Similar technology using focused higher energies is used to break up kidney and gallstones, and is termed lithotripsy. “Extracorporeal” means that the shockwaves are generated externally to the body and transmitted from a pad through the skin.
