Shock wave therapy of muscles is a new method for the treatment of muscular disorders. It has resulted from scientific developments in the last 30 yrs on understanding the origin or nerve pain and research on shock wave therapy treatment.
Originally developed for the mechanical destruction of kidney stones, shockwave therapy has now been found to regenerate treatment in bone healing disorders. In the medium to low energy range, they can treat tendon conditions, skin lesions and recently muscular disorders. They are used by orthopaedists and pain therapists to treat pain and functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. It can also be referred to as “trigger point shock wave therapy” because the shock wave can trigger the referred pain.
