What is a "Shockwave"?


A shock wave is a movement of extremely high pressure that can be caused by an explosion, an earthquake, a plane breaking the sound barrier, or…

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) otherwise referred to as shockwave therapy, was first introduced into clinical practice in 1982 for the management of urologic conditions. The success of this technology for the treatment of urinary stones quickly made it a first-line, non-invasive, and effective method. Subsequently, ESWT was studied in orthopaedics where it was identified that it could loosen the cement in total hip arthroplasty revisions. While shockwave therapy has been shown to be beneficial in fracture healing, most orthopaedic research has focused on upper and lower extremity tendinopathies and soft tissue conditions.
