Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy - ESWT

This is another procedure done under anesthesia at local centers. This procedure is done for various chronic conditions including: Lateral Epicondylitis [Tennis Elbow], Plantar Fasciitis [Foot / Arch Pain]. Off label uses Calcific Shoulder Tendonitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Heal Spurs, Medial Epicondylitis [Golfers Elbow]. Again this procedure is done once conservative care has been tried and either the patient as failed to respond or has reached a plateau.

Dr. Dhesi was one of the 3 chiropractors that started doing this procedure back in 2003, and he continues to be one of a handful of doctors in California that performs this procedure locally in Northern California. The research is very strong for this conservative treatment. It helps chronic injuries as described to re-heal rapidly while preventing invasive surgery or multiple steroid injections, and it does this by helping your tissue heal correctly.
