Details and patient eligibility

About

Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy has been shown to restore shortened muscles and normalize fibrotic tissues in muscles or fascia. Shockwave therapy can soften fibrotic tissues and alleviate pain. While there are various methods to relax muscles and fascia, radial extracorporeal shockwave therapy can achieve good results in a short treatment time. Although there is research on the pain-related effects of radial extracorporeal shockwave therapy for conditions such as plantar fasciitis and knee osteoarthritis, there is a lack of literature on its functional effects. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the improvement of ankle functionality through the application of radial extracorporeal shockwave therapy.
