Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is used to treat musculoskeletal problems related to tendons. The ESWT produces sound waves similar to ultrasound and causes tissue to reinitiate the healing process. Individuals generally experience a decrease in pain after only a few treatments. Many recent studies demonstrated ESWT leads to improved blood flow through the creation of new blood vessels and improves tissue regeneration and growth. Come see the doctors at Connected Whole Health to see if ESWT can help your chronic tendon pain.
