Shockwave Therapy

ESWT is a procedure where shock waves are passed through the skin to the injured part of the body, using a special device. Extracorporeal means outside of the body. The shockwaves are mechanical and not electric. They are audible, low-energy sound waves, which work by increasing blood flow to the injured area.

How can I prepare for ESWT?

  • You will need to be available for the full course of treatment.
  • You should not take any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, for two weeks before your first procedure, and throughout your treatment. If you are unsure if any of your medicines contain NSAIDs then please check with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
  • Wear comfortable clothing as you will be lying on your front for the treatment.
