Extracorporeal Radial Shockwave Therapy
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. With this innovative therapy approach, pathological alterations of tendons, ligaments, capsules, muscles and bones can be eliminated systematically.
STORZ MEDICAL shock wave systems have been used for orthopaedic applications since 1992. The spectrum of indications in orthopaedic ESWT, initially limited to pseudarthrosis, has later been extended to include insertional tendinopathis, delayed wound healing and myofascial pain syndrome.
