What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, ESWT for short, may also be called shockwave therapy. It is a non-invasive treatment protocol using shockwaves generated outside the body (extracorporeal) by a handheld device. These shockwaves, which are short sound waves, can penetrate soft tissue after Dr. Catalanello targets the affected area and applies ultrasound gel so that the shockwaves can successfully penetrate your body for healing.

What Is the Difference Between ESWT and Ultrasound Therapy?

Shockwave therapy, while similar to ultrasound therapy, is not the same thing and they may be used for different conditions. While both use sound waves for therapeutic benefits, ultrasound waves are high-frequency soundwaves, and shockwaves are from a lower frequency. Patients receiving ultrasound treatments often notice that the targeted area will grow warm. This will not occur during an ESWT session.

What Is ESWT Used For?

Dr. Catalanello and his team at Comprehensive Health & Chiropractic, serving Millersville, PA, may use extracorporeal shockwave therapy as part of a targeted treatment plan combining several therapies to benefit the patient’s health. ESWT is indicated for some of the following musculoskeletal conditions:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shin splints
  • Lower back pain or lumbago
  • Certain types of tendonitis in the shoulder or knee
  • Chronic pain in the Achilles tendon
