What is an ESTW Therapy?

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

ESTW Therapy is an advanced treatment method that utilizes acoustic waves to promote healing and pain relief.


The therapy works by delivering high-energy sound waves to the affected tissues, creating microtrauma and triggering the body's natural healing response. This process promotes increased blood flow, the release of growth factors, and the stimulation of collagen production.

The each session takes about 10-20minutes. Typically, patients may begin to feel some pain relief and improvements in mobility within the first week or two after the initial treatment

The Science behind ESTW Therapy

The shockwaves used in ESTW Therapy induce mechanical stress in the treated tissues. This mechanical stress triggers a series of beneficial cellular responses, including:

  1. Neovascularization: The formation of new blood vessels in the affected area, improving blood supply and facilitating nutrient delivery to accelerate tissue repair.

  2. Cellular Proliferation: Stimulation of cell division and proliferation, encouraging the regeneration of damaged cells and tissues.

  3. Increased Metabolism: Enhanced cellular metabolism and waste removal, optimizing tissue healing and recovery.

  4. Pain Modulation: Disruption of pain signaling pathways, leading to pain relief and improved functional outcomes.

Conditions Treated with ESTW Therapy

ESTW Therapy has shown excellent efficacy in addressing a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Tendinopathies: Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis), Achilles tendinopathy, and rotator cuff tendinopathy.

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia causing heel pain.

  • Calcific Shoulder Tendinitis: Calcium deposits in the shoulder tendons leading to pain and limited range of motion.

  • Myofascial Trigger Points: Painful knots in muscles that can cause localized and referred pain.

The Advantages of ESTW Therapy

  • Non-Invasive: ESTW Therapy is non-surgical, avoiding the risks associated with invasive procedures while minimizing scarring and recovery time.

  • Targeted Treatment: The focused shockwaves precisely target the affected area, leaving surrounding healthy tissues unaffected.

  • Minimal Side Effects: ESTW Therapy is generally well-tolerated, with minimal side effects reported in most cases.

  • Outpatient Procedure: Treatment sessions are typically performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to resume regular activities shortly after each session.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ESTW Acoustic Therapy?

ESTW Acoustic Therapy is an advanced treatment method that utilizes acoustic waves to promote healing and pain relief. It involves the application of precise acoustic waves to targeted areas of the body to stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair.

How does ESTW Acoustic Therapy work?

During the therapy, high-energy sound waves are delivered to the affected tissues, creating microtrauma and triggering the body's natural healing response. This process increases blood flow, releases growth factors, and stimulates collagen production, leading to accelerated healing and pain reduction.

What conditions can ESTW Acoustic Therapy address?

ESTW Acoustic Therapy is effective in treating various musculoskeletal conditions, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, muscle strains, and more. It can also be beneficial for chronic pain management and post-surgical rehabilitation.

Is ESTW Acoustic Therapy invasive?

No, ESTW Acoustic Therapy is a non-invasive treatment option. It does not require surgery, incisions, or medications. The therapy is performed externally, with the acoustic waves being applied to the skin surface.
