What is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)?

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a noninvasive treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. According to Jonathan T. Finnoff, D.O., medical director for Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine at Mayo Clinic Square in Minneapolis, ESWT is a viable option to consider for many patients who present with chronic tendinopathy that hasn’t responded to more-conservative treatments. Often difficult to treat, chronic tendinopathy is characterized by localized pain and pathological changes to a tendon. The condition affects athletes and nonathletes alike.

Who is a candidate for ESWT?

The Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of ESWT for the treatment of plantar fasciopathy. However, recent findings note that multiple high-quality randomized clinical trials have provided substantial evidence that ESWT is a safe and effective noninvasive option for treating tendinopathy throughout the musculoskeletal system.

Mayo Clinic physicians are currently using ESWT to treat chronic, recalcitrant tendinopathy throughout the body. These sports medicine specialists have found this therapy beneficial for treating the following areas of tendinopathy:

  • Rotator cuff
  • Lateral epicondyle
  • Medial epicondyle
  • Greater trochanter (gluteus medius and minimus)
  • Proximal hamstring origin
  • Rectus femoris
  • Distal quadricep
  • Patellar tendon
  • Posterior tibial
  • Peroneal
  • Achilles
  • Plantar fascia
