Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Updated: May 10

Shockwave Therapy has emerged as a excellent treatment option for various injuries and pain conditions, offering pain reduction and accelerated healing. As research in this field continues to advance, shockwave therapy is gaining traction in mainstream musculoskeletal care as well as professional and university sports medicine facilities.

Over the years, I've closely followed the evolution of shockwave therapy research. Notably, Dr. Adam Tenforde, Co-Director for Harvard Sports Medicine and Running Medicine courses at Harvard Medical School, has been instrumental in shaping best practice guidelines for this innovative therapy. In his paper, Dr. Tenforde delves into the proposed mechanisms, contraindications, and clinical applications of shockwave therapy, providing invaluable insights for practitioners and patients. Additionally, his podcast on the British Journal of Sports Medicine offers in-depth education on this topic. Personally, I reached out to Dr. Tenforde after listening to his podcast, and his guidance has been pivotal in our practice.
