This study was conducted to compare the acute effects of radial extracorporeal shockwave therapy (r-ESWT), ultrasound (US) therapy and home exercise therapy on pain, fatigue, performance and walking distance in women with plantar fasciitis (PF). Fifty-four female patients diagnosed with PF participated in the study. The patients were randomly divided into 3 groups as r-ESWT and home exercise groups, US and home exercise groups, and only home exercise groups. Patients' pain and fatigue levels were assessed by using a visual analog scale...

BACKGROUND: Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is a pathological state resulting from repetitive loading or stress on the tendon. The article aims to evaluate the effects of the low - energy radial extracorporeal shockwave therapy (RESWT) in the treatment of the adult with chronic insertional Achilles tendinopathy (AT) after the unsuccessful conservative treatment, with 18 months follow - up evaluation. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 55 years - old male suffering from severe right posterior heel pain for 4 months...

BACKGROUND: Shockwaves and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been widely accepted as useful tools for many orthopedic applications. However, the modulatory effects of shockwaves on MSCs remain controversial. In this study, we explored the influence of radial shockwaves on human bone marrow MSCs using a floating model in vitro and evaluated the healing effects of these cells on cartilage defects in vivo using a rabbit model. METHODS: MSCs were cultured in vitro, harvested, resuspended, and treated with various doses of radial shockwaves in a floating system...

In this case report, the authors describe a first-time trial of a variation of extracorporeal shockwave therapy in a patient with disseminated granuloma annulare. Radial pulse therapy was administered in an outpatient clinic of a university hospital to a 72-year-old woman with a 14-year history of disseminated granuloma annulare. The authors describe changes in clinical appearance and results of histological evaluation, reporting observable positive changes in all four treated plaques. The authors conclude that radial pulse therapy was well-tolerated and seemed to influence the course of disseminated granuloma annulare plaques positively...

BACKGROUND: Shockwave treatment is increasingly used for plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinopathy. To be effective it is believed that high pressure must be achieved in the tissues. We report on the first human cadaveric experiments to characterize pressure from radial shockwave therapy (rSWT) for plantar fasciitis. METHODS: The pressure from rSWT was measured in two cadaveric feet using a needle hydrophone. Maximal pressure and energy flux were calculated from the measurements...

BACKGROUND: Both ultrasound and radial shockwave therapies are used to treat tennis elbow syndrome. The aim of this study was to compare the therapeutic efficacy of both therapies by assessing the reduction in pain intensity and frequency, restoration of mobility, and reduction in the need for pain medication. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study enrolled 60 people, who were randomly divided into two groups of 30 patients: those treated by radial shockwave therapy and those treated by ultrasound therapy...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have suggested that either focused or radial shock wave therapy is an effect method for the treatment of spasticity in patients with stroke. However, no previous study compared these two types of extracorporeal shock wave on spasticity in patients with stroke. This study aimed to compare the effect of focused and radial shock wave therapy for the treatment of spastic equinus in patients with stroke. DESIGN: Randomized control trial. SETTING: Outpatient rehabilitation center in a medical center...

A parallel prospective feasibility study was performed on 53 patients with chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy (age 44.7 ± 9.1 years). Of the 53 patients, 28 (active group) were treated using a new electromagnetic (pulsed electromagnetic field) transduction therapy device (Cellactor(®) MT1) and heel cushions. The device produces an electromagnetic field of 80 milliTesla; a total of 8 treatments was performed within 4 weeks in an outpatient setting, without anesthesia, immobilization, or rest. A control group of 25 patients with a similar duration of symptoms was treated with heel cushions only...

PURPOSE: Ultrasound Needling(UN) and Radial Shockwave(RSWT) aim to dissolve deposits in Shoulder Calcific tendinitis. METHODS: RCT in 25 patients to compare short term effectiveness. Outcome measures were pain and functional outcome at 6 weeks and 1 year and decrease of deposits after 6 weeks. RESULTS: UN decreased deposit more than RSWT(P = 0.029). After 6 weeks, Constant, NRS and Oxford improved more in UN. After 1 year, there was no significant difference in NRS(p = 0...

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been reported to be a safe and effective method for decreasing pain and relieving range of motion (ROM) limitations caused by neurogenic heterotopic ossification (NHO), though there has been no report that it might cause hematoma if applied to NHO. We hereby report a case of massive hematoma after ESWT, specifically the radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) device at both hips in a 49-year-old female patient with NHO. She had developed NHO after extensive subarachnoid hemorrhage...

REVIEW
Johannes Zwerver, Charlotte Waugh, Henk van der Worp, Alex Scott
Shockwave treatments are commonly used in the management of tendon injuries and there is increasing evidence for its clinical effectiveness. There is a paucity of fundamental (in vivo) studies investigating the biological action of shockwave therapy. Destruction of calcifications, pain relief and mechanotransduction-initiated tissue regeneration and remodeling of the tendon are considered to be the most important working mechanisms. The heterogeneity of systems (focussed shockwave therapy vs. radial pressurewave therapy), treatment protocols and study populations, and the fact that there seem to be responders and non-responders, continue to make it difficult to give firm recommendations with regard to the most optimal shockwave therapy approach...
