What is Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)?


In the realm of musculoskeletal conditions, finding effective and non-invasive treatments is a priority for many individuals seeking relief from pain and discomfort. Enter Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), a groundbreaking treatment offered at FAB Clinic. In this blog post, we will explore what shockwave therapy is, how it can be a game-changer for certain musculoskeletal conditions, and provide insights from clinical research supporting its efficacy.

Understanding Shockwave Therapy:

Shockwave therapy involves the use of acoustic waves to stimulate the healing process in damaged tissues. At FAB Clinic, our advanced ESWT technology delivers controlled shockwaves to targeted areas, initiating a cascade of biological responses that promote tissue regeneration and pain relief.

How Shockwave Therapy Works:

During a shockwave therapy session, high-energy acoustic waves are applied to the affected area. These waves create microtrauma in the tissue, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The therapy stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, increases blood flow, and enhances cellular metabolism. This process accelerates the body’s ability to repair damaged tissues and reduces inflammation, leading to pain relief and improved function.

Conditions Benefiting from Shockwave Therapy:

  1. Plantar Fasciitis: Clinical studies have shown that shockwave therapy is effective in relieving pain and improving function in individuals with plantar fasciitis, a common condition causing heel pain.
  2. Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Research indicates that shockwave therapy can be a valuable treatment option for tennis elbow, reducing pain and promoting faster recovery.
  3. Chronic Tendinopathy: Shockwave therapy has demonstrated positive outcomes in various chronic tendinopathies, including Achilles tendinopathy and rotator cuff tendinopathy.

Clinical Research Supporting Shockwave Therapy:

  1. A study published in the “American Journal of Sports Medicine” (2003) found that shockwave therapy significantly improved pain and function in patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy.
  2. The “Journal of Orthopaedic Research” (2013) reported positive outcomes for shockwave therapy in treating plantar fasciitis, with patients experiencing reduced pain and improved function.
  3. A meta-analysis published in the “American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation” (2014) concluded that shockwave therapy is a safe and effective treatment for chronic lateral epicondylitis.
