Shock Wave ESWT
What is ESWT?
ESWT is an FDA approved form of treatment. It is a non-surgical approach
to pain relief that is used regularly to cure common problems like plantar
fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. The therapy works by targeting shock
waves directly to the area that is experiencing pain. This non-invasive
procedure typically lasts less than 30 minutes.
Statistically, over 90 percent of patients that receive this therapy experience
a reduction in their pain. In patients that suffered from plantar fasciitis and
heel pain related problems, the pain reduction was remarkable. Nearly all
patients had successful results with only one treatment of ESWT. For this
reason, many people are turning to ESWT to treat their injuries.
One of the main benefits of ESWT is the low risk attached to the procedure.
The therapy is treated extra-corporeally. Patients receive the therapy outside
of their body instead of receiving an invasive surgery.
This promotes a faster recovery time, and it also minimizes the side effects
from the treatment itself.
Recovery from ESWT is a gradual process, however the pain will not get
worse. In the process of ESWT, damaged tissue cells begin to rebuild.
Therefore, healing of the injured area will occur over a few days, weeks
or months as these new cells develop. In some rare cases individuals will
experience soreness or bruising after the treatment.
ESWT is a great option for patients that have chronic pain. Individuals that
have tried other options with no results and are still experiencing pain will
benefit from ESWT.
It is important to try this therapy before the pain gets worse. If the injury
gets worse or spreads to other areas of the body, ESWT may not be an
