Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

"Shockwave treatment (ESWT) is a compelling, non-surgical treatment for an expanding variety of musculoskeletal conditions. More than two decades after the first clinical shockwave treatment, many new indications have been discovered and a large number of excellent studies and basic research have been performed. The most famous shockwave researchers have written their chapters within this book. " -- Dr. John J.
