Abstract :

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has since been developed and used steadily in medical advanced countries. Shock waves have features such as reflection, transmission, and diffraction, as do sound and light waves. Compared to sound waves, they are faster and more powerful pressure waves. ESWT is classified into focus type and radial type, according to the principle of wave generation. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been used for a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment. Also, it is applied relatively easily to musculoskeletal patients and it has less impact on daily life since the recovery time after treatment is short.
