Application of ESWT in post-operative treatment in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – a review
Languages of publication
The aim of this study is to evaluate the potential use of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) in the post-operative treatment of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. A body of evidence validates the use of ESWT in various medical areas, mostly in nephrolithiasis, but also in a number of musculoskeletal conditions and in wound healing. Our knowledge about the use of ESWT in carpal tunnel syndrome seems sparse, which combined with a lack of reference values, forms a major limitation of the use of ESWT in this condition.
