Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

How Does Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) Promote Healing?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), also simply known as “Shock Wave Therapy” is a non-invasive, out-patient alternative to surgery for those with many joint and tendon disorders. ESWT sends acoustic shock waves into bone or soft tissue, in effect reinjuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up the scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. The controlled reinjuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting revascularization leads to faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity levels. Simply put, it is a powerful acoustic pulse that is used to treat numerous foot and ankle conditions.

What is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) Used For?

  • Achilles and other tendon inflammations, injury or scar tissue
  • Ligament and joint sprains, strains and residual weakness
  • Plantar fasciitis, heel, arch or mid-foot pain
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
