The series “Shock Wave Therapy in Practice” continues with this volume about the application of shock waves in muscles – a novel form of treatment. This work of reference offers orthopaedists, specialists in sports medicine and muscle therapists a practical guide on the treatment of trigger points and myofascial pain syndromes using extracorporeal shock waves.

The book initially presents the physical principles of shock waves and also describes pathophysiological aspects, as well as the causes of muscular pain, before it goes on to cover the diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities of using radial and focused shock waves on muscles in a comprehensive and practical manner.

The author, Dr. Markus Gleitz, specialist in orthopaedics, is an expert in the area of shock wave therapy, thanks to years of practical experience with different shock wave systems.
