FREMONT, CA: An alternative for orthopedic surgeries, Shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment used in various medical fields, such as urology, cardiology, orthopedics, and physical therapy, among others. According to the clinical studies, around 91 percent of the patients reported successful results, which also includes an increase in mobility, a decrease in chronic pain, and other health improvements.
Shock wave therapy treats various musculoskeletal conditions, particularly those affecting medium to large-sized tendons and their insertions on the bone. This therapy is a non-surgical treatment that works by delivering impulses of energy to specific targeted damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. It stimulates cell regeneration and healing by increasing the blood flow within the affected area and decreasing local factors which can cause pain. The above factors contribute to the demand for shock wave therapy devices worldwide.
Furthermore, this increasing demand for shock wave therapy devices, the growing geriatric population, and established healthcare infrastructure are adding to these devices market growth. Radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy supports breathing for those who suffer from shortness of breath and severe chest pain, Especially for patients with COVID-19 (coronavirus disease). This therapy is considered non-invasive, low-cost, and safe as it operates without the dangers of surgical procedures and postoperative pain. It will also in turn boost the growth of the market.
The increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, huge patient pool with pain management, rise in preference to non-invasive technologies, and growing demand for technologically advanced shock wave therapy devices are boosting the market growth of shock wave therapy devices in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions.
