Focused & Radial Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

ESWT is a FDA approved treatment used in musculoskeletal medicine, orthopedics, urology and cardiology. The shockwaves are abrupt, high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy, similar to soundwaves, generated by an electromagnetic process. “Extracorporeal” means that the shockwaves are generated externally to the body and transmitted from an applicator through the skin, that reaches deep to targeted tissue in a very precise procedure.


Who needs ESWT?

How it works (for the more technically oriented)

  1. Spatial impact on sarcomeres
  2. Increased Chemotaxis of Stem cells
  3. Neo-Angiogenesis promotion
  4. Pain modulation: Release of Nitric Oxide, Selective degeneration of C-Fibers, pain modulation via Gate Control Model
  5. Destruction of damaged muscle fibers assisting the body in getting rid of them


At Spine & Sports Medicine Clinic/Chiropractic Egypt, Dr. Habib has been implementing a combined treatment approach to musculoskeletal problems, which incorporates the correction of faulty biomechanics implicated in causing such issues, through adjustive as well as muscle fiber re-education and release techniques, along with ESWT.

Dr. Habib believes that both fulfill the clinical criteria for being non-invasive, evidence based, as well as extremely effective in alleviating such problems in as little time as possible.

Our Doctor’s approach has been considered to be, not only innovative, but also effective and complete.
