Focused Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

Therapy at Advent Health Daytona Beach and Palm Coast

Focused Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (also known as ESWT) works by delivering acoustic waves directly to the area that is causing pain. This technology was initially developed as a therapy to help break up kidney stones during lithotripsy, however research has shown that many orthopedic injuries improve with ESWT. This non-invasive procedure does not involve any needles or surgery and the results are seen within only a few easy treatments. The device delivers precise acoustic waves delivered by a hand-held wand. The therapy is able to reach deep tissues and there are no significant adverse effects. ESWT is a fantastic alternative to pain medication and some patients experience relief after the first visit.
