Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a new method for the treatment of numerous chronic disorders of the musculoskeletal system: calcific tendinitis of the shoulder joint; lateral epicondylitis; medial epicondylitis; plantar fasciitis; and pseudarthrosis. Other indications are being investigated either in clinical studies or as empirical therapeutic possibilities of ESWT. This book gives a clear overview of the status of ESWT and ultrasound imaging in the management of musculoskeletal disorders.
