SUMMARY

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 - 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 present status of ESWT and ultrasound imaging in the management of musculoskeletal disorders
