Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
About Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (SWT)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is a modality used for the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, primarily applied to chronic conditions, particularly those affecting medium to large sized tendons and their insertions on bone such as:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendonopathy
- Retrocalcaneal Bursitis
- Lateral Epicondylosis (Tennis Elbow)
- Medial Epicondylosis (Golfer’s Elbow)
- Calcific Tendonitis (supraspinatus tendon, etc.)
- Patellar Tendinosis (Jumper’s Knee)
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Chronic Stress/Non-union Fractures

SWT is an intervention that stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Additionally, SWT has been shown to have a direct effect on local nerve endings resulting in a decrease in pain.
Mechanical pressure and tension forces on the tissue which has been shown to increase cell membrane permeability thereby increasing microscopic circulation and therefore the metabolism within the treated area. This promotes healing and may result in the dissolution of calcific deposits.
The pressure front creates behind it a “cavitation bubble” which are small empty cavities created behind a pressure front. When the bubbles collapse they create a resultant force that has a mechanical impact on the treated tissue. This force helps to break down calcific deposits embedded in damaged tissue.
Shockwaves stimulate osteoblasts that are cells responsible for bone healing and new bone production.
Shockwaves stimulate fibroblasts that are cells responsible for healing of connective tissue such as tendons.
Diminishes pain by two mechanisms. Hyperstimulation anesthesia – local nerve endings are overwhelmed with so many stimuli that their activity diminishes resulting in short-term reduction in pain. Gate-control mechanism – whereby local nerves are stimulated to recalibrate perception of pain and result in longer-term reduction in pain.
Symptoms and Benefits
- Destruction of Targeted Micro-Organisms (PANDEMICS) (viruses, bacteria and parasites).
- Influenzas & Infections: Viral & Bacteria *Arthritis * Fungus * Lyme Disease* Allergies * Memory Loss * Herpes * Fibromyalgia * Chronic Fatigue * Parasites* Candida * Migraines * Depression * Infections * Kidney & Liver Conditions, and most other conditions.
- Turbo Charging the immune System.
- Detoxing the Body by removing impurities (pulverizes toxic debris for elimination).
- Detoxifying frequencies shake loose the toxic debris from their storage locations and vibrate them into minute particles easily removed by the liver, kidneys, blood and lymph system.
- Stimulating Regeneration by increasing cellular activity (rebuilding thru intentional sympathetic resonance).
- Rejuvenating (thru stimulating body tissue, rebuilding DNA and reactivating cellular memory).
- Balancing & Normalizing Emotions (through harmonic sympathetic resonance of targeted emotional frequencies).
- Connecting Brain Synapses (for emotional & neurological pathway healing).
