ESWT estimates that its technicians have helped relieve chronic pain in thousands of patients since 2000. They haul the extracorporeal shockwave-therapy system to doctors' offices up and down the East Coast, applying its cavitation technology for 18 minutes at a time. These treatments are designed to erase the discomfort associated with tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow, an ache that results from wearing a stone tennis bracelet. The machine stimulates the production of connective tissues while overloading the troublesome nerves that ferry pain signals to the brain. Originally designed to break up kidney stones, the ESWT tools can also help with spurs, or calcification deposits.
