ED shock wave is a wave of energy that travels faster than the speed of sound. Urologists commonly apply the energy, during shock wave lithotripsy, to break up kidney stones.
The high energy waves are focused within the transducer head so that the shock wave can be directed to the precise area of the injury. When shock waves hit an area of higher acoustic impedance, such as bone,the waves slow dramatically and a large amount of energy is released into the surrounding tissue.
Shock Wave Fields of application：
1.Tennis elbow(Painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the lateral elbow)
2.Shoulder pain with or without calcification(Painful limitation of shoulder movement)
3.Golfer's elbow (Painful inflammation of the tendon attachment on the medial elbow)
4.Busitis trochanterica(Painful periostitis of the hip)
5.Patella tip syndrome(Inflammation of the tibial edge dye to excessive strain)
6. Tibial edge syndrome(Inflammation of the tibial edge due to excessive strain)
7.Painful heel(Painful,mostly chronic inflammation of the heel)
8. Inflammation of the tendon attachment (Painful inflammation of tendon attachments due to overexertion or improper strain,or due to degenerative processes)
9. Acupuncture points (Pain therapy through that treatment of acupuncture points)
10. Painful trigger points (Acute and chronic pain in the back,shoulder,neck,etc.due to permanently shortened and thickened muscles)
