FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy or ESWT is an 20-minute non-surgical procedure used to cure chronic plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, shoulder tendonitis, and other chronic tendinopathies.
ESWT benefits patients because their condition can be treated extracorporeally, meaning outside of the body.Since ESWT is non-invasive, there is no lengthy recovery period, virtually no time off from work or risk of causing further damage.
ESWT is one of the few technologies that performs best on people with chronic conditions that did not respond to conservative traditional therapy. ESWT accelerates the body’s own healing process in a number of ways:
- Through a process called cavitation, ESWT stimulates fibroblast and tenocyte production. Fibroblast or tenocyte cells make up your body’s connective tissues, such as tendons and the fascia.
- ESWT diminishes pain by over-stimulating the nerves that send pain sensations to the brain.
- The procedure can break down pathological calcification deposits (also known as a spur). Depending upon your condition this may or may not be the goal, but an interesting by-product. In all cases, ESWT is targeted at the condition that caused the spur, not the spur itself.
Therapeutic ultrasound is used to provide deep heating to soft tissue structures in the body. Deep heating tendons, muscles, or ligaments increases circulation to those tissues, which is thought to help the healing process. Increasing tissue temperature with ultrasound is also used to help decrease pain.
Inside ultrasound unit is a small crystal. When an electrical charge is applied to this crystal, it vibrates rapidly, creating piezoelectric waves. These waves are emitted from the ultrasound sound head as ultrasound waves.
The ultrasound wave then enters into your injured tissues during application of the modality. This increases blood flow and cavitation, leading to the theorized benefits of the treatment.
Ultrasound is performed with a machine that has an ultrasound transducer (sound head). A small amount of gel is applied to the particular body part; then your physical therapist slowly moves the sound head in a small circular direction on your body.
The therapist may change various settings of the ultrasound unit to control the depth of penetration of the ultrasound waves or change the intensity of the ultrasound. Different settings are used in various stages of healing.
While you are receiving an ultrasound treatment, you will most likely not feel anything happening, except perhaps a slight warming sensation or tingling around the area being treated. If the ultrasound sound head is left in place on your skin and not moved in a circular direction, you may experience pain. If this occurs, tell your physical therapist right away.
