What is Shock Wave Therapy and is it really that great?
Yes, it really is that great! Having used the treatment on myself, I have dubbed it the fountain of youth.
Shock Wave Therapy (also called ESWT and EPAT) is a mechanical energy jolt used in 90% of the world for dissolving kidney stones. By controlling and targeting this energy to different tissues and locations, the micro-trauma causes immediate and long-term results, also called “final healing” or “biologic effect”:
increase collagen production & reduction of inflammationincrease cell permeability & dissolution of calcific depositsincrease local blood circulation & vascular growthincrease local cell metabolism & higher levels of nitric oxideantibacterial effect & elimination of pathologic deposits
