ESWT is capable of producing sonic waves with high amplitude, which creates energy to reduce calcification, increase blood flow and decrease healing time. With this proliferation of growth factors and increase in blood circulation, degenerative tissue gets a chance to heal. The treatment often does not require anesthetic and lasts about 8-9 minutes.
