We investigated the effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) on the rehabilitation of cervical spondylosis with nuchal ligament (NL) calcification under X-ray and ultrasound guidance. Sixty patients with cervical spondylosis and calcification of NL were selected and randomly assigned to three groups: A, B, and C.
Paraplegia following spinal cord ischemia represents a devastating complication of both aortic surgery and endovascular aortic repair. Shock wave treatment was shown to induce angiogenesis and regeneration in ischemic tissue by modulation of early inflammatory response via Toll-like receptor (TLR) 3 signaling.
A randomized controlled trial. Coccydynia is pain in the coccygeal region, and usually treated conservatively. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) was incorporated as non-invasive treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions.
A report of two cases -(Yousef Marwan, MBBS, Wael Husain, MBBS, FRCSC , Waleed Alhajii, MBBS, MSc, Facharztb , Magdy Mogawer, MBBS) – Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ECSWT) has been used widely for musculoskeletal conditions.
Lumbar facet joints (FJ) is a common source of low back pain and contributes approximmately on one third of chronic low back pain. Medial branch radiofrequency neurotomy is considered as a gold standard in the treatment of facet joint pain. Corticosteroid injections have also presented effect in FJ pain.
Short-term results of a randomized controlled trial. The physiotherapy treatment of low back pain (LBP) with physical stimulation offers different possibilities of application. Until now, the physical therapies used in LBP are laser therapy, ultrasonotherapy and currents.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) for patients with chronic low back pain and their dynamic balance ability. [Subjects] Twenty-eight patients with chronic low back were divided into an extracorporeal shockwave therapy group (ESWTG: n=13) and a conservative physical therapy group (CPTG, n=15).
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is widely used in clinical practice. In addition to its original use in kidney stone disintegration, shock waves are now used for the treatment of a variety of regenerative indications. Mechanotransduction stimulates the body’s biological healing processes at the cellular level. In areas of wound healing, orthopaedics or erectile dysfunction, very good, well-founded treatment successes are achieved.
