Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) refers to a non-surgical technique that involves applying high-energy radial “shockwaves” directly into the injury or affected area. Its specific mechanism of action in treating musculoskeletal conditions has yet to be fully understood.
However, research suggests that its therapeutic effect comes from short shockwave pulses that create micro cavitation bubbles that can penetrate the affected tissues. This, in turn, stimulates interstitial and extracellular responses that lead to tissue healing and regeneration.
Besides tissue repair, the acoustic waves can also bring other therapeutic effects to the body that can increase healing and recovery. Would you like to find out more? Click the link below:
