What is electrohydraulic extracorporeal shock wave therapy?

Electrohydraulic Low-intensity-ESWT therapy is a simple non-invasive specific energy therapy that modulates cellular signaling with the result of shutting down inflammation and increasing blood flow in short and long term, which in the vast majority of cases results in profound relief of physical discomfort and significantly accelerated healing.

What conditions or injuries respond the best to wave therapy?

Electrohydraulic Li-ESWT triggers the body’s fundamental healing response and acceleration of healing and relief of discomfort is typical for a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

How many treatments are typically needed?

Does the therapy hurt?

Electrohydrauloc Li-ESWT elicits some pain during treatment, but this pain response is integral to the success of the treatment. Any pain experienced during the treatment is completely gone the instant the applicator is moved away from the treatment site.

Do you need recovery time after Electrohydraulic Li-ESWT?

It is recommended to not stress the treatment area through physical exertion for a period of 3 days, post treatment. Overworking the treatment site prematurely, may diminish the effect of the therapy.
