Trigger Point Shock Wave Therapy, also known as the Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, or myofascial compression, is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons, and joints. Shock wave therapy describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered can lead to increased circulation and pain relief – key components in the healing process.
The PiezoWave2, combines orthopedic applications of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) with the applications of Trigger Point Shock Wave Therapy (TPST), which are highly efficient, non-surgical treatments for chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system
Trigger Point Shock Wave Therapy offers a significant expansion of the range of applications for myofascial pain syndrome. The extracorporeal, focused shock wave allows precise diagnosis and therapy of active and latent trigger points that are thickened, pain-sensitive points within a usually tense muscle.
