What are
Shock Waves?

Shock waves are audible high-energy sound waves. In the medical world, shock waves have been used successfully for the treatment of various medical conditions since around 1980.


Originally only used for the disintegration of kidney stones, shock wave therapy has evolved into a recognized treatment modality in orthopedics, rehabilitation, neurology, dermatology, urology and cardiology.


Shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment option. This means that the shock waves are generated outside of the body (extracorporeally) in a therapy system and then travel through the patient‘s skin into the tissue. Depending on the indication, low-energy (soft tissue treatment) or high-energy (lithotripsy) shock waves are applied.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) 

An innovative method for pain treatment

Pain therapy
with shock waves

Acute or chronic pain in the shoulder, knee, heel or Achilles tendon or tensed-up muscles in the neck, shoulder or back: pain makes life di cult and reduces mobility. Modern shock wave therapy is gentle on tissue and can help to alleviate pain on a long-term basis.


Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a pain management technique that introduces high-energy sound waves into the painful areas of the body. Certain pathological changes to tendons, ligaments and muscles can be treated in a targeted manner.
