Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), is a medical treatment that uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in various musculoskeletal conditions. The shockwaves are typically generated by a device and targeted towards the affected area, promoting increased blood flow, tissue regeneration, and a reduction in inflammation. This non-invasive therapy is commonly used to treat conditions such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and other orthopedic issues. Shockwave therapy is typically administered by a physiotherapist, health professional, sports medicine physician, or athletic trainer with a physician’s supervision.
How does shockwave therapy work?
Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
In many instances, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own. This shockwave machine activates the body’s natural healing processes. Treatment typically involves multiple sessions over weeks. The number and frequency of sessions depend on the specific condition and the patient’s response to therapy.

Inflammation is a common cause of knee pain, and shockwave therapy can help reduce inflammation in the knee joint. This is achieved by increasing blood flow to the area, which promotes the body’s natural healing process and helps reduce inflammation.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. Shockwave therapy heal the numbness and pain from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic condition that affects your muscles and the fascia (thin connective tissue) around them. shockwave therapy helps myofascial pain syndrome by reducing the pain and fully recovering from it.
Sciatica and Hip Pain
Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Shockwave therapy promotes healing the tissue of sciatica and fast recovery from hip pain.
Calf Muscle Pain
This shockwave helps the user to recover calf muscle pain which is usually caused by cramps, when the muscles suddenly contract. This might happen if you have been doing new exercises if you are dehydrated, or if you are deficient in some minerals.
Handle Front Part
To replace the transmitter heads according to treatment requirements, ensure that the shockwave machine is powered off and disconnected from the electrical source.
The handle cooling fan on a shockwave machine is designed to prevent the handle from overheating during treatment sessions and the heat will released from the the given space in handle
Touch Screen & 12 treatments
This shockwave designed with a touch screen display in this context likely serves as a user-friendly interface for controlling and adjusting the parameters with 12 different types of treatments.
5 Gear Levels
This shockwave machine can give users the convenience of setting such as Adjustable16 frequencies, high voltage, count setting, and 5 adjustable gear levels and this setting is adjusted according to treatment requirements.
The shockwave machine is designed with a hanging frame to make a convenient compartment to store or keep the shockwave handpiece and transmitter heads.
Handle Power Button
The power button ON/OFF controls the shockwave treatment which is typically located on the handle and pressing the power button to activate the machine and pressing the button again to shut down the treatment.
How To Use The Device
- First, insert the handpiece connector into the host power outlet located in the front of the host.
- Second, connect the power cord to the host power port behind the host and then insert the plug into another end of the power socket.
- Next turn on the power switch.
- Lastly, select the corresponding functional mode in the system.
- The treatment typically takes between 5 – 20 minutes and the intensity can be adjusted throughout the session if required.
- Most people will need 3 – 5 sessions but in many cases, one session is enough to reduce pain considerably.
Precaution / Caution
- If you feel uncomfortable, please stop using it immediately.
- Stay in the correct posture, especially sitting and sleeping positions.
Do not use a massager if there are the following conditions :
- Tumors, lung tissue, major blood vessels/nerves, or infection in the treatment area
- Epiphyseal plate, brain, or spine in the treatment area
- Coagulopathy including thrombosis
- Applying immunosuppressive
- Joint fluid seepage or joint replacements
- Cognitive/mental disorder or poor sensory function
- Pacemakers or other implanted devices
- Open wounds
