Shockwave – Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
What is it?
ESWT or Shockwave is the name given to a treatment that involves shockwaves being passed through the skin to the injured part of the body using a special device. Extracorporeal means outside of the body. The shockwaves are mechanical, not electric; they are audible, low energy sound waves. ESWT has been reviewed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the UK and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA in the USA).
